About Elgood & Sons

Elgood’s Brewery is a family business established over 200 years ago and run by the Elgood family since 1878.  

Elgood & Sons is a family-owned brewing company situated in the heart of ‘Fen’ country in Cambridgeshire, England.

Home to Elgood’s is the North Brink Brewery which was established in 1795, and was one of the first classic Georgian Breweries to be built outside London.

In 1878 it came under the control of the Elgood family, and so it remains today, with the fifth generation of the Elgood family now coming through to run the business, maintain the traditions, and push the company boldly forward into the 21st Century.

The North Brink Brewery stands on the north bank of the River Nene, in the centre of the Cambridgeshire town of Wisbech. The classical Georgian facade presents a sense of history to the world, and over the years Elgood’s has remained loyal to traditional brewing methods, whilst making important technical advances to enable the brewing of a complete range of beers to cater for all of today’s tastes.

Elgood’s has long been a staunch supporter of the traditional British ‘tied house’ system, and currently operates an estate of 36 public houses all within a 60-mile radius of the Brewery, and embracing parts of neighbouring Lincolnshire and Norfolk in addition to its Cambridgeshire heartland.

The company has also established a booming ‘free-trade’ business throughout East Anglia, and beyond this, wholesalers transport Elgood’s beers nationally.

Today’s Chairman is Nigel Elgood, who ran the brewery as managing director from 1968 to 2002.

In that year he handed over the running of the business to the eldest of his three daughters Belinda, who continues as the managing director; while her two sisters Claire and Jennifer are directors. We are very proud of our family history and its association with Elgood’s Brewery.
