Gardens Spring 2020

Although the brewery and gardens are still closed, we hope to be able to open as soon as the restrictions allow.

In the meantime, we thought everyone would like to see how lovely the gardens are looking just now so here are some photos.  We look forward to welcoming customers, visitors and friends old and new in the near future.

Covid-19/Coronavirus Important Announcement

Update: 12th August 2020

We are really pleased to be back brewing again, albeit part-time and with a skeleton staff.  Our pub tenants have been working hard to get their premises ready to welcome customers again and we have had some very encouraging reports from people who are happy to be able to visit their local.

Our office is open for enquiries 0900-1700 Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.

Unfortunately, our retail outlets, including the on-line shop, remain closed for the time being and we are not yet able to open the garden to the public, although we are working on a plan!  We have had to cancel all of our brewery events for the foreseeable future, although we are reviewing the situation regularly and hope to have better news soon.

Please look out here and on social media for updates.

Elgood’s Beer Festival – another great year!

Elgood’s Beer Festival 2019

Elgood’s annual beer festival ended at 10.30 pm on Saturday 21st September.

Tired but happy staff and customers all agreed that this had been the best ever!  Visited by approximately 1000 people over the three days, the festival was blessed by sunny weather and the friendliest atmosphere.

Entertainment was from Toadfish Bone, The Cherry Reds, The Rusty Relics and Bewildered and helped the party go with a swing.  Caricaturist John Elson did a roaring trade in quick sketches of visitors and staff during Saturday afternoon and evening.  All proceeds from this not-for-profit event will be distributed to local charities.

Before the festival the SIBA Regional Independent Beer Awards took place at the brewery and Elgood’s were delighted to win several awards.
