Lister’s unashamedly brews beers for the mass market. They aim to satisfy the beer drinkers that prefer traditional styles of beer that they can return to time and again. With many stockists and over 500,000 pints sold, they are crowdfunding to meet demand and expand Lister's community.
Launched in 2014 by father, son and daughter, Lister’s has come a long way after launching on a tiny scale, with an investment of just £10,000. Supplying customers across the South of England, in the North West and Yorkshire. Lister’s is more than just a pint for local people - our Best Bitter is sold at CAMRA’s UK Pub of the Year in St Helens, no mean feat when competing with 1700 other breweries.
Our fondly remembered rescue dog, Lister, loved nothing more than a roaring pub fire, so it was fitting to name the brewery after him. We now donate funds from our Dog Foundation to animal rescue charities nominated by Lister’s fans, having previously donated over £10,000 to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
At Lister's we're passionate about quality, consistency and customer service. The brewery was hand-built and fully automated by Head Brewer, Phil, allowing us to produce more beer for less. However, with demand increasing, our current facility is at capacity. We have agreed the terms for a new site on the Duke of Norfolk’s Sussex estate that, with investment, will allow us to:
• Move sites and increase brewing capacity
• Increase the number of delivery hubs
• Grow and wholesale our own barley on the 6700-acre estate
• Bottle our beers in-house to reach new markets
We're often recognised as ‘the doggy brewery’ help us get little Lister known and loved by even more people!
