Introduction to our history

We operate five breweries - Park Brewery in Wolverhampton (brewing Banks's, Hanson's and Mansfield beers), Marston's Brewery at Burton on Trent, Jennings Brewery at Cockermouth in the Lake District, Wychwood brewery in Witney and Ringwood brewery in Hampshire.
We brew some of the UK's leading ale brands including Marston's Pedigree, Banks's Bitter, Banks's Original, Mansfield Bitter, Hobgoblin and Ringwood Best Bitter. Our award-winning ales collected five international brewing medals at the Millennium International Brewing Awards. Key developments in the last decade have enabled Marston's PLC to position itself as the UK's premier regional brewer.
