The company has teamed up with Birmingham food and music entrepreneur Carl Finn to open the Church Inn in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter this Saturday (25 May).
A former Everards's family home the Stamford Arms in Groby, Leicestershire, opens as a Project Artisan site on 2 June.
Project Artisan is an initiative by Everards to partner with talented food and drink producers to run their pubs.
Finn founded the Soul Food Kitchen, a travelling kitchen that operates in a few Birmingham pubs. He will be offering food at the Church Inn inspired by America’s deep south . He also runs Soul Food System, a live music concept and pop-up restaurant the Secret Dining Society.
The Church Inn will feature a cocktail station, strong real ale and wine focus, new function room and roof terrace garde. Everards acquired the Church Inn site from Admiral Taverns.
The first Project Artisan site was Loaf Bakery & Cookery School in Stirchley, Birmingham, which opened last year.
Project Artisan follows on from the company's Project William, where the brewery partners with micro-brewers. There are 24 Project William sites.
Everards won Best Tenanted & Leased Pub Company (up to 200 sites) in this year’s Publican Awards.
