A local favourite, The Tiger has a special synonymous in Leicester as the Leicestershire Regiment were nicknamed ‘The Tigers’ in 1825 following their long service in India. Launched in 1972, the first barrels of Everards Tiger ale were delivered to pubs, and a new age in beer drinking was born. The branding depicted a bright modern image which symbolised the progressive and confident mood of Everards at the start of a new decade and in 2016 we were very honoured to receive special permission from the Colonels of the Leicestershire Regiment to use their laurels on today’s Tiger logo. Brewed exclusively for our own pub estate of over 150 pubs and our prestigious partners including our local rugby club, the Leicester Tigers, Tiger really is a special beer.
