St Austell Brewery’s Korev Cornish lager now only outsold by Tribute as sales rocket

September 10, 2013

Some interesting news for beer fans – St Austell Brewery’s Cornish lager Korev is now its second highest-selling beer behind Tribute just three years after being launched.

The growth seems to have been helped by some strong pick-up on draught, with the brewery signing an exclusive deal with the Browns brasserie chain in the summer to serve the 4.8% lager – whose name is the Cornish for beer – in all of its 27 locations across the UK.

It is also the only draught lager served Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall and the only lager the Tanner brothers serve in their excellent Barbican Kitchen restaurant in Plymouth.
