Brains have a new bottled beer Brains Original Stout (4.1%) that they have brewed just for Tesco
Iam a bit fan of bottle stout and looking forward to tasting it – I saw it in my local Tesco already today – but bought a couple of bottles of their IPA (as it was BOGOF)
Brains Original Stout
A new edition to the multi award winning collection from Brains Brewery. This is a classic, full bodied, flavoursome stout, brewed to an original recipe. It has bold chocolate aromas and complex roasted malt flavours with a balanced bitter taste that give a refreshing beer which is a perfect accompaniment to a hearty stew or a classic roast dinner.
Welsh brewer S.A Brain and Co Ltd has secured a deal with Tesco to supply 600 stores throughout the UK. From mid August Brains Original Stout – which was developed exclusively for Tesco – will be available in all larger stores, making it Brains’ biggest supermarket deal.
The brewer currently supplies all national branches of Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, as well as all Welsh Tesco stores. Paul Harvey, Head of Take Home, explains: “We’ve been working with Tesco in Wales for several years and, more recently, secured a deal to supply 100 English stores with SA Gold. This latest agreement will step change our business with Tesco in line with our ongoing objective of becoming a major player in the off trade market.”
