Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England, DE14 2BW

The company operates three sites: the Park Brewery in Wolverhampton, which brews Banks’s, Hanson’s, and Mansfield beers; Jennings Brewery at Cockermouth in the Lake District, and the Albion Brewery in Burton upon Trent—“the home of British beer.” Throughout its long existence—which stretches back to 1834—it has acquired several of its competitors in the Midlands, Cumbria, and Wales. Then, in 1999, Marston’s itself was taken over by Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries, which changed its name to Marston’s PLC in 2007.

Brewing secret

The brewery still uses the fabled Burton Union fermenting system for its classic Pedigree beer, capitalizing on the renowned, hard, and sulfur-rich local water.
