Martson’s the pub and brewing company has revealed they stockpiled almost £6m of beer in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The company said they built up their stocks of brands and core lines “in anticipation of a disorderly Brexit” for the 29 March.

The brewery said, “Consequently, stock levels were around £6 million higher than the corresponding period last year.

“We continue to closely monitor the Brexit situation and are well placed to implement any necessary contingency plans.”

Ralph Findlay, chief executive of Marston’s said, “Whilst the backdrop of ongoing uncertainty around Brexit continues to be challenging, opportunities for growth remain and we are confident of delivering another year of profitable growth for our shareholders.”
