We're proud to brew British beer

Our story begins in 2012, with a dream to brew real ale. Following redundancy and a period of job hunting, Anthony Hughes decided to turn a dream into reality. With a retailing background and a keen interest in home brewing, Anthony began creating the recipes of the core range for Lincoln Green in the garage of his home in Mapperley, Nottingham. Training at Brewlab in Sunderland and Nottingham University helped develop a greater understanding of the science of brewing consistent, quality real ales.

Lincoln Green takes its name from the colour of dyed woollen cloth associated with the legend of Robin Hood. Proud to be brewing in Nottinghamshire and proud of the county’s strong brewing heritage, the company aims to operate in an environmentally aware manner, with a controlled delivery radius and sourcing goods and services from local businesses whenever possible.

We're very much focused on our core range, each named with a respectful nod towards Nottinghamshire's legendary hero:

Marion Pale Ale 3.8%
Hood Best Bitter 4.2%
Sherwood Extra Pale Ale 4.4%
Tuck Porter 4.7%

In 2014, Lincoln Green Public House Company was created, with the opening of The Robin Hood (AND) Little John in Arnold, Nottingham. With a simple approach, focused on traditional British pub heritage and values, the company has a simple philosophy:

We believe in 'proper' pubs

We're always welcoming

We're proud to serve real ale

The strategy for Lincoln Green is to open a total of five pubs over the next seven years.

Lincoln Green is proud to be a member of the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) and Anthony Hughes is a Trustee for the Midlands Region.

"Proud of British Beer" is a short film featuring brewers, both large and small, hop and barley growers, maltsters and industry suppliers.

It was produced as part of the successful campaign to lobby the govenrment to remove the 'beer duty escalator', where continued above inflation increases in beer duty threatened to destroy our indigenous British industry.

Whilst the beer duty escalator was removed in 2013, this film still represents all that's great about the British pint.
