about

Beer has been made in the small Midland town of Burton-on-Trent for centuries: ale brewed by the monks at Burton Abbey was sent to Mary, Queen of Scots in captivity. Then, in the 18th century, the introduction of Burton Ale began the town's rise to brewing prominence, a fame which was cemented forever with the production of the first cask of the world-famous India Pale Ale.
