Burton-brewed brands undergo radical image change

Marston's Burton-brewed range of beers has been given a striking new look in a departure from its traditional look in a bid to attract a new generation of drinkers dubbed as 'trailblazers'.
1st November 2016

From today, Marston's is investing over £1million over the next 12 months on a brand new assertive position that puts Burton-on-Trent at the heart of its campaign.

The range of seven beers that includes the iconic Marston's Pedigree and the newly created 61 Deep will boast new packaging, pump clips, point of sale materials and younger tone of voice to convey a compelling meaning behind each of the brand's stories.

Burton brands get a radical makeover

A new consumer campaign, 'From Burton With Love' shot by 'Skins' photographer Gavin Watson will depict the brand's proud Burton-on-Trent roots and brewing back-story using Marston's employees and local people scouted from the streets in everyday situations and locations.

In addition to a new beer range, Marston's Burton-on-Trent brewery will develop its NPD pipeline in 'DE14', a new 600-pint innovation brewery inspired from the brewery's postcode.

Lee Williams, Marketing Manager for Marston's Brewery says: "The harsh reality is that as a brewer, we're not resonating with the next generation of drinkers who are attracted to the authenticity and simplicity of the new beer scene. For them it's real and it resonates."

Talk to anyone working at our brewery in Burton though and you realise that we're no different and share the same passion and love for what we do. So you could say this is just about us presenting ourselves in a new and honest way, as only a true Burton brewery can. We need the next generation to consider our beers, perhaps for the first time and discover that they love the taste too – just as generations before have done and still do."

The new imagery goes live from today with a print, online and social media campaign kicking off in Spring 2017. Go to www.marstonsbrewery.co.uk for more details.
