A POPULAR ale brewed by a Burton-based company has made its television debut on a popular daytime show.
Marston’s Oyster Stout was included in a stout and food matching feature on ITV’s This Morning show to celebrate St Patrick’s Day today.
Annabel Smith, from Cask Marque, and one of the first beer sommeliers in the country, conducted a tutored beer and food tasting with the show’s regular presenter Holly Willoughby and guest presenter Christine Bleakley.
They sampled Marston’s Oyster Stout with the famous Loire Valley goat’s cheese, Crottin de Chavignol along with four other brands.
Gaynor Green, Marston’s marketing manager, said: “This is a fantastic prime time slot to feature Marston’s Oyster Stout as one of the UK’s best.
“It’s great to see British beer featured on such a popular programme and nice to see Holly and Christine lending their palates to some classic stout and food matches such as chocolate and cheese.”
Christine Bleakley enjoyed the beer and described it as ‘nice and light’.
The other stouts featured were Wadworth’s Espresso Stout, Wells & Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, Black Sheep’s Imperial Russian Stout and Guinness.
