Reflecting rising sales of cask ales and the growing interest in speciality beers within the UK beer market, Molson Coors UK has opened a new £1m micro brewery in Burton-on-Trent. The new William Worthington’s Brewery will produce limited edition and seasonal beers along with Molson Coors’ established ale brands such as Worthington’s White Shield and Red Shield.

The brewery is housed in a listed building at the National Brewing Centre, a popular tourist attraction which celebrates Burton’s long brewing history. Indeed, William Worthington began brewing in Burton more that 250 years ago.

“The brewery will be a hub for continuous new ale development as well as a means of maintaining the heritage of the Worthington name,” says Mark Hunter, chief executive of Molson Coors UK. “Indeed, with renewed interest in this category by British beer drinkers, we see this as a growing market that is set to flourish.”
