Suffolk-based St Peter’s Brewery has launched a new beer to its range – lager.
St Peter’s, which won the EDP Busines Awards international enter-prise category, has increased brewing capacity by more than 60pc in the last 18 months and has plans for two further new beers this year.
The firm, which exports almost half of its production to 32 countries, said it anticipated strong overseas interest in the new lager.
It was also set to present the lager to UK supermarkets as it aims to get the lager, which will be available in its iconic 500ml bottles and 30 litre kegs, placed on the shelves alongside its other bottled ales.
Nearly 1,250 people, including more than 100 in the East of England, have been made redundant following the appointment of administrators at Unipart Automotive, one of the UK’s largest independent suppliers of car parts.
