Description: James Everard entered the brewing business in 1885. Born in Ireland in 1831, Everard was unlike the majority of brewers/brewery owners at the time who were predominantly of German decent. Everard’s first brewery on Washington Street produced ale & porter and was operated under a partnership “Shook & Everard”. Eventually in Everard would move to the addresses listed above and change names to “James Everard’s Breweries” and in addition to his previous offerings, he added lager beer production to his business.
