Wrexham Lager makes its official return to the town centre tonight at a historic pint pulling session.
The Bank on the High Street will be selling the world famous beer from 7pm this evening with the Mayor of Wrexham Cllr Ian Roberts set to pull the first pint.
Wrexham Lager first went on sale on Saturday at The Buck House in Bangor-on-Dee and the pub’s owners say it has already sold 3,000 pints.
It’s taken two years of hard work for the Roberts family who run F Jones wholesale distributors on Wrexham Industrial Estate to bring the beer back.
The Cross Lanes Hotel and Holt Lodge have also started selling the beer, however, tonight marks its return to town centre pubs.
Owner of the Bank Bar Alex Jones said that his family has historic ties to the brand as his late grandfather Arthur Mills used to run three pubs in Wrexham.
Amongst those in attendance will be Wrexham MP Ian Lucas, he said: “Wrexham Lager is a historic beer and I am delighted that it has been resurrected. It is good news that it is being sold in the town centre once more and I am pleased that it is being made by a small but dedicated local brewery.
“I am looking forward to sampling a part of Wrexham’s history.”
