Royal Visit

On Friday the 5th April 2019 HRH Prince Charles, The Duke of Cornwall, met with part of The Cornish Maris Otter Group on his visit to St. Austell Brewery. Over 20 years ago Roger Rymer (Brewing Director of St. Austell Brewery) approached Robin Appel Ltd to get Cornish Farmers growing Maris Otter. Prince Charles spent his time with the farmers discussing the intricacies of growing Maris Otter and their relationship with St Austell Breweries barley supply chain.

Prince Charles visited St Austell Brewery in celebration of Tribute Pale Ale’s 20th anniversary and in recognition of the company’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
