About Us


My name is Darren Lavender , along with my wife Louise we are now the new owners of Elliswood Brewery , Hinckley’s first and only Micro Brewery which has been up and running and brewing since August 2013 when brothers Tracy Ellis and Phil Woodward,  both CAMRA  members and Beer Enthusiasts opened the first commercial brewery in Hinckley since 1900.

Their debut beer, “Just One More”, sold out in three hours at the Market Bosworth Rail and Ale festival, they continued to develop more quality local beers, including some award winners, you can view the current range on our “Beers” page.

In 2016 Tracy and Phil decided it was time to pursue other ventures and sold the Brewery to myself and Louise, under the close guidance of Tracy in the initial months I have endeavoured to learn the “art of brewing” and my aim is to now continue producing the Best Quality Beers from our current range and also develop and introduce new and exciting beverages for people to enjoy.

Anyway enough from me , let’s get Brewing!!
