Admirals to make draught appearance


Beer lovers are in for a treat after Admirals Ale, which was recently crowned the world’s best bottled beer was launched on draught – for a limited period only.

The ale, supreme champion at the International Beer Challenge’s ‘World’s 50 Best Beers’, will be rolled out in draught across St Austell Brewery’s estate after being unveiled at St Austell Brewery’s Annual Trade Fair. It’s part of a programme of special seasonal ales being released by the Brewery during 2009.

 The one-day trade fair at the Hall for Cornwall, Truro on Tuesday featured over 45 trade stalls and attracted more than 300 licensees, managers and stewards of bars, pubs and clubs across Cornwall to see the latest innovations in drinks brands and developing trends in the industry.

As well launching Admirals Ale being on draught, St Austell Brewery also unveiled the latest addition to the range of wines available through its Walter Hicks wine merchants business.

Ian Blunt, St Austell Brewery sales and distribution director, said: “We’re delighted that this year’s trade show was one of the busiest yet and the mood amongst visitors was one of optimism ahead of the coming season.”
