In the beginning Langton Brewery started at the back of the Bell Inn, East Langton in 1999. Originally, the brewery only intended to supply the pub and the local cricket club over the road. However, people started to really enjoy drinking the beer, and the team rather enjoyed crafting it. Especially after the head brewer came up with a little recipe called Inclined Plane. So it was decided to up production and move Langton Brewery to the idyllic Grange farm at Thorpe Langton, Leicestershire in 2005.
We are now in the middle of our journey and the popularity of our beers continues to grow. We have modernised our brand, bought new kit, lots more casks and are employing more folk like us. We are supplying local outlets, pubs, restaurants, hotels and farm shops. You name it and we’ll get the beer there.
No end – we are excited about the challenge of making new interesting and innovative beers. We’re striving to brew beers in all sorts of ways for all walks of life. Who knows where the future could take us? As long as we stick to our local values and we’re continuing to make great quality hand-crafted beer, we are happy.
At the end of the day we are a team and together, staying true to our roots, we are on an exciting journey. Please feel free to join in our conversation!
We’re about beer above everything else. We don’t ram this down people’s throats, but our passion, enthusiasm and commitments needs to be experienced in everything. Everywhere.
We never forget. Beer first. Everything else second.
We are small but big on fun and friendship. We encourage healthy debate. We all have different ideas, strengths, interests and cultural backgrounds but that is what makes us successful.
We believe in excellent customer service. Without which we are left with lots of beer!
We are anchored. We are true to our roots. We embrace them and celebrate them. We look back and kick back. Even when we up anchor, we know we can take the beer out of the shire, but we can never take the shire out of the beer.
We don’t stand still. Exploring new recipes to better our range to appeal to our less traditional ale drinkers.
We believe in supporting the local community by promoting local areas of historical interest as well as raising money through events for local charities and sporting clubs.
We are rock solid. We’re not fly by night. Here today, gone tomorrow. We don’t subscribe to trends, fads and novelty. We know who we are and we know what we do. People trust us. Our beer. And our way of doing things. You can depend on it. Time and time again.
Born locally. Bred locally. Brewed locally. Langton Brewery is local. And it’s this local charm that makes it the perfect accompaniment to great conversation.
