Parliamentary groups back Brewing Centre bid

Parliamentary groups back Brewing Centre bid

The chairmen of two influential pub and beer groups for MPs have lent their support to the National Brewing Centre’s bid to set up as a trust company.

The National Brewing Centre in Burton-on-Trent is hoping to set up a trust company called “The National Brewing Heritage Trust Ltd” but must first prove it is a national organisation.

The Society of Independent Brewers is already based there and the centre holds a number of historical artefacts and documents that are of national importance to the history of British Brewing.

“The Centre is without doubt a national organisation,” said Save the Pub Group chairman Greg Mulholland MP. “As a leading brewing nation, the brewing centre is of huge national significance and a hugely important part of Britain’s culture and heritage.

“With SIBA based there as well as a museum holding many historical artefacts and documents on the history of British brewing, it is hugely important the centre is able to secure its long term future.

“I wish the centre the best of luck and the Save the Pub Group and I will of course continue to assist them in any way possible as it seeks to set up ‘The National Brewing Heritage Trust Ltd’.”

I am really pleased to have the support of Greg and the All Party Save the Pub Group for the National Brewery Centre. The Centre plays such an important part in the history of brewing, not only in Burton but nationally as well. It is vital for the National Brewery Centre to thrive and succeed to help promote the greatness of the British brewing industry and I am delighted to continue to support them in this.Local MP and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group, Andrew Griffiths MP, added: “I am really pleased to have the support of Greg and the All Party Save the Pub Group for the National Brewery Centre.
