Founded in Harwich in 1723, this brewery has had a chequered recent history. Initially Cobbold & Co Ltd, it moved to its current location in 1746. It merged with Ipswich's other large brewery, Tollemache's Breweries, in 1957. It was then acquired by Ellerman Shipping Lines in 1977. This itself was taken over by Barclay Brothers in 1983. Brewing ceased in 1989 following a takeover by Brent-Walker and production of Tolly brands was transferred to Camerons. However some of the management immediately launched a management buy out and Tolly Cobbold started brewing again, and once more independently, in September 1990. The original brewery was replaced in 1995 with a smaller modern plant but is used for brewery tours. Announced in July 2002 that they had been taken over by Ridleys and the brewery would close before the end of the year with only Original being brewed at Ridleys.

Started brewing in spring 2000, based on Derby Road, Hathern, Loughborough. A 2½ barrel brewplant, which was supplied by Mossbrew Brewing Systems, was located in the stables in one of the owner's gardens. It is owned and operated by 4 men. The brewery takes its name from the village which has been known as Wicked Hathern ever since comments were made about it by a 19th century clergyman, the Revd Edward Thomas March Philips, rector of Hathern from 1808 for 51 years. Fed up with the cock fighting and drunken brawls in the graveyard, he referred to Hathern as "a wicked place and a cage for every unclean beast. I wonder what is to become of it?". It's been known locally as Wicked Hathern ever since. In early 2007, following the retirement of one of the partners, the brewery was mothballed and brewing now takes place at an undisclosed brewery, it is understood that it may be Leek, while plans to expand the business are worked on.

Young's started brewing at this site in the 1830 although brewing is believed to have been carried out on this site since 1581. It is as such the oldest site in continuous beer production in the UK. The brewery has been one of the main bastions of real ale during the keg and nitro-keg revolutions. Announced in May 2006 that by October 2006 the brewery would close and production would transfer to a new company, of which a 40% share will be owned, formed by a merger with Charles Wells to become Wells & Young's Brewing Co Ltd. Young's will continue as a pub group.
