Have you been to one of Manchester’s hotspots, The Oast House Spinningfields? It’s pretty darn cute and is always packed when I pop in. I can only imagine how many pints have been pulled since it started life as a pop-up over five years’ ago.
I heard The Oast House has reached a very special milestone, under the patronage of parent company The New World Trading Company. The Oast House has sold over a whopping 100,000 pints of Budweiser Budvar Tankové Pivo, which as far as boring statistics go, is a pretty neat, exciting one to remember.
Exactly how much is 100,000 pints? Put it this way, 100,000 pints is equivalent to 710 customers at The Oast House having a bath full of beer. Or if Old Trafford Cricket ground was full capacity, 26,000, each person would get 4 pints each.
It’s cosy and cute and always seems packed to its wooden rafters. This brand continues to grow stronger, and The Oast House Spinningfields, which recently celebrated its 5th birthday on Halloween this year, has been pouring from the tank since May. It was the first Budweiser Budvar Tankové Pivo site outside of London. To the unitiated, Tank beer, or to give it its full name of Tankové Pivo, ensures that drinkers in Manchester taste the freshest unpasteurised Budweiser Budvar from the hallowed cellars of the brewery in the Czech Republic.
Chris Hill, CEO of The New World Trading Company said: “We pride ourselves on offering the very best of world beers and ales, so we are thrilled to have reached such an important milestone as well as continuing to help Manchester remain the world’s capital for Tank Beer.”
Simon George, UK Managing Director, Budweiser Budvar UK said: “We have had an overwhelming reaction so far to Budweiser Budvar Tankové Pivo. Manchester as a city has a strong beer scene so we aren’t surprised that Budvar Tankové Pivo has been embraced by people in the city looking for a lager with authenticity and a brewery fresh taste.”
