Beer volumes up at Marston's

27 July, 2011

Pedigree and Hobgoblin brewer Marston’s says it is outperforming the declining beer category with an increase in production of its own-brewed beers.

The company, which also owns the Banks’s and Jennings brands and operates five breweries, said own-brewed volumes were up 2% on last year’s figure for the 42 weeks to July 23. It said: “Our focus on localness and premium ales contributed to this growth, with premium cask ale up 4%.”

A trading statement said: “Our performance has been encouraging and robust despite the difficult trading environment. Profitability is in line with our expectations and we continue to make good progress in each of our trading divisions.”

The company will issue its preliminary results on November 30.
