An historic steam train made a whistle stop at Bristol to take on consignment of Box Steam beer a couple of weeks ago.
Belmond British Pullman, the sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, made a quick stop at platform 10 of Bristol’s Temple Meads station on 11 May to pick up cases of the Box bottled range. The precious cargo, including 17 cases of Funnel Blower, our 4.5% vanilla porter, were loaded aboard by Box Steam’s Master Brewer himself, Philip Downes.
Philip said: “We’re ‘chuffed’ to have one of our bottled beers on board such a famous train. Passengers will be able to savour the luxurious, rich flavours of our porter in equally indulgent surroundings, as they travel through the wonderful countryside which helped produce it. One great tradition coupled with another!”
