Shops and restaurants across North Staffordshire are now able to stock award winning Titanic beer following a deal between the Stoke-on-Trent brewery and major cash and carry retailers, Booker.
Bottles of real ale from Burslem’s Titanic Brewery went on sale at the Stoke-on-Trent Booker wholesale store in Campbell Road for the first time in early April.
The companies are hoping to reach an agreement to extend the deal throughout the Midlands and North West.
Keith Bott, Managing Director of Titanic Brewery, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to reach an agreement with Booker.
“It means that local shops and restaurants can buy beer produced in their home city and further improves our market reach.
“I look forward to seeing Titanic beer on sale in restaurants, giving customers a choice of local real ale alongside the usual wines and lagers.”
