Skinner’s in demand


Skinner’s Brewery has won new product listings in a major supermarket and a pub chain.

Skinner’s ‘Sunshine IPA’ Lushingtons will be sold at 72 Sainsbury’s stores from mid-January, alongside two pre-existing Skinner’s lines, Porthleven and Betty Stogs.

Lushingtons will also be available in cask in selected Punch Taverns across the UK during March and April as part of its ‘Finest Cask’ guest ale festival; the pub company has around 1,250 pubs in England, Scotland and Wales.

Stuart Hughes, sales and marketing manager at Skinner’s, said: “Everyone in the hospitality and brewing industries is hoping for a more settled year without the need for further lockdowns. If that happens, then I think we’ll see a steady revival in the cask beer sector, as people once again get into the habit of enjoying a great pint of cask beer in their local.”
