NEWS: Everards of Leicestershire celebrate Clock Tower 150th Anniversary
Everards of Leicestershire recently celebrated the birthday of another local fixture- the Haymarket Memorial Clock Tower, which is nearly 20 years its junior.
The tower is the namesake of Everards own ale, Clock Tower, which was made as a way of celebrating 150 years of the local landmark standing proud in the famous city. Not only is the iconic landmark considered a focal point of Leicester, it also holds the historical title of Britain’s first traffic island.
Clock Tower is a deep golden ale brewed with four types of hops. You’ll get a fruity aroma of berry and citrus with blackcurrant and delicate caramel on the finish. Clock Tower will be available in many Everards pubs across the Midlands throughout January.
Everards itself was founded in 1849, and now in its fifth generation, own more than 175 pubs mainly in Leicestershire and the Midlands. With a 2015 launch, the Clock Tower ale is a fairly recent release, brought back to mark this important birthday for the city, especially next to Everards’ award-winning flagship bitter, Tiger, which was released in 1972.
Everards created and released a Youtube video to celebrate the birthday of the clock tower, as well as the rich history, culture, and community of the great city surrounding it.
