Everards of Leicestershire brews up success with two awards at the Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards!

Everards of Leicestershire scooped two awards at the prestigious Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards at the glittering ceremony at Athena in Leicester.

Up against some of the best hospitality and tourism businesses in Leicestershire, they fought off some tough competition as their popular brewery tour was recognised as ‘Experience of the Year’. The judges said, “They loved every second and the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff was exceptional and a major factor in delivering a gold winning experience”.

But that wasn’t the only award Everards picked up. Richard Everard, President of the business was also presented with the prestigious ‘Tourism Superstar’ award on the night for services to the industry. The judges said “This winner has been working away in the background making a huge difference without seeking personal profile or promotion. For 2022 we have a truly worthy winner responsible for a multi layered contribution to the tourism and hospitality sector over many years”.

Since beginning their tours just over a year ago, Everards have welcomed over 3,000 visitors for a guided behind the scenes tour of their state-of-the-art brewery. Their brewery tours make the perfect gift for loved ones, check out their 5 stars reviews at
