Everards – Blue Boar
In 1485, Richard III stayed at The Old Blue Boar Inn (which was rebuilt in 1836 and became an Everards pub between the dates of 1895 to 1972) before the Battle of Bosworth Field. The King brought his own oak bed and many years after his death the landlady uncovered £300 in the false bottom. The landlady was murdered by a maid, looking for the treasure – but the hunt was on and she and her lover were caught and hanged.
To mark the discovery of King Richard III in Leicester and to commemorate his reinterment on 26th March, Everards Brewery is delighted to brew ‘Blue Boar’. A commemorative ale featuring the image of the king’s badge the ‘white boar’. An amber ale brewed with medieval flavours of honey and mead with delicate spice and citric notes.
