In the 1960s, we were taken over by a London brewer who closed Lacons down. We subsequently reclaimed our independence in 2013 and started brewing again.
Above all else, we are and always have been a forward-looking business. Our focus is simple we pride ourselves on quality, consistency and innovation, so in 2020 we rebranded our core range spring boarding Encore, Legacy and Affinity into the modern era.
Based in Great Yarmouth, Lacons Brewery is home to Lacons Encore, the award-winning amber beer. Our brewing team is passionate about using the finest ingredients to create amazing beers and our range includes bitter, pale ale, aged stout and a lager amongst others. Above all, we love beer and we want to make sure that when you buy a pint of Lacons you can see what all the fuss is about.
Although the Lacons name goes back to the mid-18th century, our modern day brewery applies the latest technology to the age-old craft of brewing beer. We’ve taken the best of the old Lacons recipes (plus the original Lacons yeast) and tweaked them to create modern beers with years of heritage. In addition to this, we’re constantly working on new techniques with experimental ingredients to make our beer something exciting to look out for.
