History of Banks’s Brewery
Banks’s Beer had its first cask of ale brewed in 1875! Since then, it has seen rapid expansion across the decades, with mergers and pub expansion across the UK.
In 1999, the company purchased Marston’s, the famous pub chain that everyone knows! From here, they again continued expansion and today are known as the Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company, having merged with the Carlsberg Group in 2020.
Throughout England, Scotland and Wales, there are over 1550 Marston’s pubs, all of which sell the well-known and loved Bank’s Beers. Bank’s selection now includes a wide range of beers and ales, from Amber Bitter, Sunbeam, Mild and Barley Gold to Dark Mild.
In 2011, they opened their Visitors Centre and Brewery Tour, allowing the public into their brewing process for the first time.
The Banks’s Brewery Tour is a great experience for those who are beer lovers, looking to learn some more about the Black Country-based beer.
Throughout the tour, you are given the opportunity to explore the brewing process, see what goes into a Banks beer, and taste some samples! Who could resist! And to top it all off, you get 2 free pints too!
