|Headquarters||Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, UK|
The brewery is located on the north west bank of the River Nene, west of Wisbech's town centre. After it was bought by the Elgood family, the building was renovated in the Georgian style and most of it is still in use today. It was one of the first classic Georgian breweries outside London. Nigel and Anne Elgood's three daughters, Belinda Sutton, Jennifer Everall and Claire Simpson, are the fifth generation of the family to run the business.
During the First World War the brewery was fire-bombed by a Zeppelin, and the shell of the bomb can still be viewed in the brewery museum. During the Second World War some of the metal vats and tuns were melted down, but the brewery retained its 17th-century Eagle Foundry (Wisbech) liquor vat.
In the brewery gardens there is a landscaped mound (on top of which stands "Brewery House"). This mound is the outside the original cold store for the beer. During the First and Second World Wars the cellar doubled as an air-raid shelter. Today the cellar is unused, but the entrance is still visible from the current cold store. The gardens, which contain 200 year-old trees, a lake and a maze, are promoted by the Campaign to Protect Rural England.

In 1988, several bottles of the brew were obtained from the sunken ship in the Channel. They were still in their original containers, with their wood stoppers and wax seals intact. When opened, the beer were said to taste like wet boots according to renowned brewer and microbiologist, Dr Keith Thomas.
