Lister's Brewery is named after our fondly remembered family pet terrier. Lister loved to be the centre of attention on any pub visit. He liked nothing more than to wander the floors of an East End pub looking for discarded pork scratchings, the odd splash of spilt beer and any human affection going. It was always easy to find him – you just had to look for the person bending down to stroke him.
For the Red Dwarf fans amongst you – yes he was named after the main character, Dave Lister, after he was re-homed from Battersea Dogs Home!
