At Greene King we brew around 150 million delicious pints of beer a year, in two different breweries – the Westgate Brewery in Bury St. Edmunds, which has been brewing continuously since 1799, and the Belhaven Brewery in Dunbar, which is 80 years older than that! Our range spans a huge variety of styles, from full flavoured, malty traditional ales to cutting edge brews bursting with zesty hops; rich stouts to thirst-quenching lager. We brew traditional favourites like Greene King IPA, the revered Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen, the UK’s no.1 premium ale; Scottish stalwarts Belhaven Best (the best-selling ale in Scotland’s pubs) and Belhaven Black, and a raft of exciting, modern styles, the latest of which, Ice Breaker Pale Ale, is winning new fans all the time. You’ll find our beers in thousands of Greene King and independent pubs throughout the UK, and on the shelves of every major supermarket and convenience store. In fact, from Moscow to Melbourne, San Francisco to Shanghai, for somebody somewhere it’s 5 o’clock – and that means it’s time for Greene King.
It takes a passionate and dedicated, multi-faceted team to brew beer this good, week in, week out. We are brewers, engineers, technicians, production experts and supply chain wizards – we plan, brew, package and deliver beer in cans, bottles, kegs and casks (join us and we’ll explain the difference). We deliver up and down the land; we send beer all over the world. We are a marketing, communications and sales team, nurturing our range and partnering with customers in pubs, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and stores up and down the UK. We don’t just sell to those customers; we look after them, too, with dedicated customer service, customer care and cellar service teams. We are finance people to look after the numbers; we are facilities people to look after our buildings; we are HR people to look after each other. It’s a complex process, all the way through from selecting just the right barley and hops to getting the beer into your glass at home or in the pub – but the taste tells us it’s worth it.
