Brewer and pub operator Greene King has launched a ‘Cask Ale Club’ initiative exclusively available to its ‘Pub Partners’.

The collaboration between Greene King Brewery and its tenanted, leased and franchise division will see Cask Ale Club members receive enhanced support and exclusive offers.

Greene King said the club will be exclusive to the biggest cask ale leased & tenanted pubs by volume within the Pub Partners estate, with plans to expand this as the club develops.

The club aims to help members grow their cask ale beer volume even further by enhancing and ensuring the quality of their cask ale in pub, preserving the cask ale tradition that is synonymous with the great British pub.
