Meet the people behind the pints at Marston’s

Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

Find the only beer still traditionally crafted in oak casks by the last remaining brewer in town, on the fringes of England’s National Forest.

Something unique about the local water made Burton-upon-Trent the best place to brew beer. And so the breweries came, turning this eastern corner of Staffordshire into a one-town industry.

From the simplest ingredients: water, malted barley, hops and yeast, something magical can be made – and Marston’s call it Pedigree.

To truly appreciate traditional skills, and sheer craftsmanship, you should join their two-hour guided Visitor Centre Tour. See the process end-to-end, savour the earthy aromas, and chat with one of the country’s few remaining coopers.
