The time-honoured traditions, historic buildings, the evocative smells, the fizz of excitement in the air…no, it’s not Pedigree brewing in the Union sets. We’re swapping oak for willow and hops for leather because its time pay homage to another icon of British life: Lord’s cricket ground.
With so much in common, is it any wonder that Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the owners of Lord’s cricket ground, have signed a new agreement to maintain the Marston’s supply of beers for another five years?
The Aussies will have to drink their amber nectar elsewhere – the Official Beer of Lord’s, Pedigree and 61 Deep will be on draught in all the bars at the ground. Makes you proud doesn’t it?
When you want to watch top class cricket you go to Lord’s. When you want to drink top class beer, you buy from Burton.
