Greene King Launch 81 Pilsner for Beattie's as Contract Extended
Thursday, 8th Aug 2019 12:17
Town have announced a new five-year contract with Greene King which will see a specially brewed beer, 81 Pilsner, served in Beattie’s, which is to be formally opened this afternoon.
The contract, an extension of the previous five-year deal agreed in 2014, will see Greene King IPA and East Coast IPA continue to be poured at bars around Portman Road. Carling will now be the lager served around the stadium.
Greene King, club sponsors from 1995 to 2001, and Carling have played a big role in the refurbishment of Beattie’s, previously Legends.
Family and former team-mates of Blues legend Kevin Beattie, who died last year aged 64, will be at the official opening later today.
Simon Edgar, Greene King’s head of sales for East Anglia, said: “We are thrilled to be renewing our partnership with Ipswich Town, continuing our long-running association with the club, and look forward to supplying our beers around the stadium for the new season.
“Greene King is a huge long-term supporter of sports clubs and associations throughout the UK and we are especially proud to be part of the refurbishment of Beattie’s - a tribute to a true Ipswich legend.”
Rosie Richardson, Town’s director of sales, added: “We have worked with Greene King for numerous years and we are delighted that we have extended the partnership and overall association.
“Greene King are extremely supportive and we’re excited about launching the new 81 Pilsner which fans will be able to enjoy at Saturday’s game.”

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
