Meet the Sales Team

Travelling around visiting pubs all day sounds like a pretty ideal job doesnt it? The Sales team tell us it is not necessarily that easy! These are the guys who make sure you are able to order a delicious pint of TEA or Hogstar from your local pub or make sure you can put a bottle in your supermarket trolley. More than just selling, they provide Landlords with advice on how to serve the best quality beer and can often be found at Meet the Brewer events, introducing the public to the rest of our range at special pub events.

Often they work hand in hand with the Trade Office team but have a read and meet the team.
