Young's - Modern touch at Britain's oldest brewery

Young's Ram Brewery is the oldest site in Britain on which beer has been continuously brewed. It was established by 1581, in the reign on Elizabeth I, when Humphrey Langridge was the brewer at the Ram Inn in what was then the Surrey village of Wandsworth.

The Young family came on to the scene in 1831, when the partnership of Charles Allen Young and Anthony Fothergill Bainbridge bought the rapidly expanding brewery. The Youngs have been in charge ever since and the present chairman, John Young, is the great-great-grandson of the original Charles Allen Young.

Young's shot to prominence when a policy of positively promoting traditional draught beer - announced by John Young in the early 1960s - coupled with the growing influence of the Campaign for Real Ale - founded in 1971 - created a demand for real ale that far outstripped supply.

A new brewhouse was built in the late 1970s and early 1980s to increase capacity and to replace old equipment. The brewery is now a blend of ancient and ultra-modern plant producing traditional ales, Continental-style lagers, innovative stouts and an imaginative range of bottled beers that are enjoying notable success in the supermarkets.

Young's have more than 200 pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels in London and the south of England and sell their beers to more than 1,000 other pubs and clubs throughout Britain as well as to outlets around the world.
