Everards are busy developing their new home which brings something unique and exciting to Leicestershire. Open to the public, it features a contemporary beer hall where you will be able enjoy great food and drink, as well as a shop stocking all your Everards favourites. There will be a state-of-the-art brewery which takes centre stage being visible from the beer hall, as well as a smaller pilot brewery which offers the brewing team a chance to experiment and also welcome members of the public.

“This is such an exciting time for us and it was great to see our new pilot brewery being installed,” shares Head Brewer, Jon Elks. “This is where we will be brewing some new and exciting beer types and styles for our customers to enjoy onsite in the beer hall, in Everards pubs or to take home from our shop. This is also where you will be able to come and enjoy one of our brewery experiences too if you fancy being a brewer for a day!”

Everards are now looking for great people to join the team in a range of roles both front and back of house in their beer hall and shop. They are working with local recruitment partner, ER Recruitment and you can find out more about the roles and apply at
