Warwick Racecourse is raising a glass to a new partnership with Hook Norton Brewery, with race-goers able to enjoy a range of award-winning ales from the independent family-owned company.
The partnership was launched at the start of the new season at Warwick Racecourse, with a visit from the brewery’s shire horses, which still carry on the tradition of weekly dray deliveries to local pubs.
Andre Klein, general manager of Warwick Racecourse, said: “Like Warwick Racecourse, Hook Norton Brewery has a rich tradition and heritage, and is a progressive, forward-thinking organisation, so we are delighted to be joining forces.
“From the brewery’s base just across the Warwickshire border, they will supply a range of their popular handcrafted real ales across the racecourse.”
Hook Norton plans to host meet the brewer and other events at Warwick Racecourse, such as product launches and hospitality functions, as part of the agreement.
James Clarke, managing director of Hook Norton Brewery, said: “This is a very exciting partnership with Warwick Racecourse. Hook Norton Brewery is a proudly independent, family-owned, fifth generation brewery that takes the very best of its brewing heritage and combines it with a thoroughly modern approach to create a range of cask, keg and bottled ales.
“It is the first time that we have been associated with horse racing and Warwick Racecourse is exactly the right fit for us. We look forward to bringing the best quality ales to its race-goers throughout the season.”
The next fixture at Warwick Racecourse will be the Business Networking Raceday on Friday, November 10. For membership and advanced tickets go to www.warwickracecourse.co.uk
