Cash Margin Opportunity

Consumers are willing to pay more for quality. Landlord can help raise the price point across your cask range.

Premium brands command premium prices

  • Don’t be frightened to charge what a well-kept pint of premium cask ale is worth
  • Most people believe cask is or should be the same price as mainstream lager so think about whether you can raise your prices accordingly
  • We have plenty of case studies of publicans who charge a significant premium for Landlord to other ales and benefit from it being their best-selling ale on the bar...

“We priced Landlord where it needs to be and despite us having some early concerns over the price hike we haven’t looked back since – Landlord is our bestselling cask ale.” Angel Inn & Posting House, Pershore

Hopical Storm

Our first-ever kegged beer, Hopical Storm, is sweeping across the UK. Bring the Storm to your bar with our industry-leading support package driving awareness and sales.

We launched Hopical Storm in Spring 2020; a 4% ABV aromatic, dry-hopped, modern kegged pale ale. Brewed using whole leaf hops grown entirely in the UK, with three stages of hopping to give depth of flavour and an aromatic nose.

Citrusy and sessionable, it has a pleasant fruity body topped with flavours of mandarin, mango and passion fruit.


Landlord Dark

One of the fastest-growing cask ales now has a dark side.

Landlord Dark originates from the multi award-winning Landlord Pale Ale, but brewed with caramelised sugars to give a rich yet light and drinkable dark ale.

Landlord sales are up 54.7% vs. 3 years ago and it remains the only cask ale brand in growth. Landlord Dark, due to Landlord's ongoing success and its namesake, benefits from the significant, continued investment in building the brand.
