Carlsberg Marston's Brewing Company

Uniting two historic brewers with shared values, history and heritage in brewing

Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC) is one of the newest, historic brewers in the UK. Formed out of a joint venture between Carlsberg UK and Marston’s PLC, who are both shareholders, we combine over 300 years of shared values, history and heritage in UK brewing.


CMBC provides its customers and consumers with an unrivalled portfolio of lagers, ales and craft beer brands from the very best of two master brewing teams, plus those under license from valued partners. These include lagers such as Carlsberg Danish Pilsner, Carlsberg Expørt and Birrificio Angelo Poretti; premium cask and packaged ales, including Hobgoblin, Marston’s Pedigree and Wainwright; brands under license including San Miguel, Shipyard and Erdinger; a broad selection of alcohol-free beers; plus distribution of the Brooklyn Brewery portfolio.

CMBC also owns and operates a brewery and distribution network across the UK, including the Carlsberg brewery in Northampton, Marston’s in Burton upon Trent and Banks’s in Wolverhampton; plus a National Distribution Centre in Northampton and 14 UK-wide distribution depots.
