Marston’s Beer Company has signed a deal with pub operator Brakspear, which sees the company become the primary supplier of all wet-led products into the Brakspear pub estate through Marston’s Logistic Team.
The agreement, which will go live from the 1st November will include all Brakspear pubs, giving them access to Marston’s brands portfolio, which recently grew with the acquisition of Charles Wells. The move gives Brakspear licensees access to one of the best drinks portfolios in the industry and a choice of quality British ales and beers, as well as a wide range of international beers.
Building on an existing relationship with Brakspear, Marston’s, who have been brewing Oxford Gold and Brakspear Bitter under license since 2002, also demonstrated updated, state-of-the-art logistics technology and nationwide depots as part of their proposal, allowing an efficient supply of a range of brands to suit each pub.
Dave Saunders, Head of National Sales for Marston’s Beer Company said: “We have enjoyed working with Brakspear for a number of years so to become their official drinks supply partner for all product categories demonstrates the trust and shared vision between our two businesses. We are hugely excited and committed to making this partnership a great success for Brakspear and their licensees.”
Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “This is a very positive move, extending the good relationship with Marston’s that we have built on cask ale across all the drinks sold in our pubs. For our licensees, the main benefit will be that all their drinks will come from one single supplier, making it easier for them to accommodate deliveries and liaise with one point of contact. They will also be able to choose from an extended range of products.”
