Marston’s bowled over the Warwickshire County Cricket Club by inviting them all to the brewery giving them a taste of what being a world famous brewer is really like.
Joining the team on the day were cricket legends Ian Bell and Ashley Giles who alongside the players and coaching staff, were led in an interactive brewery tour and a talk from Marston’s innovation brewer, Genevieve Upton. As part of the visit, the cricketers had a chance to taste some of the limited edition beers from ‘DE14’, the 600 pint micro-brewery situated in Marston’s visitor centre, and to also toast the newly created Birmingham Bears beer, which is due to be available across selected pubs in May. The beer will offer drinkers a chance to win Bears tickets for the T20 Blast matches throughout the summer, where Ian Bell will be hoping to add another T20 tournament win to his recent success down under in the Big Bash.
Lee Williams, marketing manager for Marston’s said: “It has been great to have the guys down for the day as part of our on-going sponsorship at the club and hopefully we have inspired one or two to become brewers one day!”
