A picture of the brewing plant of Archers The Brewers Ltd


First brewed in June 1979 in an industrial estate unit on London Street in Swindon. A 12BBL plant was used but this was quickly doubled in size due to the success of the ales. Following continued expansion, the brewery moved to its current site, a recreation of a Victorian tower brewery in the old locomotive weighing house of the old Swindon Locomotive Works. It was purchased by pub-owning group Burns Leisure in 1999 and for a period in 2000 took on the brewing of the group-owned Tom Hoskins Brewery PLC beers. Following the collapse of the group, the original owner took control once more and the brewery continued to grow. The brewery closed in March 2009, but the brands were purchased by Wm Evan Evans Brewery. For a short period, beers were produced using the Archers brand at Evan Evans but the brewing of these brands soon ceased. The site was then used for Brightbeer.
