Started brewing in Spring 2000, based on Derby Road, Hathern, Loughborough. A 2½BBL plant, 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 Staffordshire Brewery Ltd.

The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
