Young's Brewery was founded by Charles Young and Anthony Bainbridge in 1831, when they purchased the Ram Brewery in Wandsworth. Since then, it has been  associated with the Young family, and until 2006 the last chairman of Young & Co belonging to the Young's family was John Young, the great-great-grandson of the founder.

Today, Young and Well's produce a wide array of beers, and run a large chain of pubs up and down the UK.
