Official Pouring Rights Partner
Worthington's is not only the "most popular ale in the West Country and Wales" but is also synonymous with its association with rugby. Its support and passion for rugby goes from its proud partnership and shirt sponsorship with the Gloucester Rugby (which has run continuously since 1983) but also its long term involvement with "grass roots rugby" in Gloucester and surrounding areas.
As the parent company has progressed and evolved from Bass Brewers to Molson Coors Brewers (fourth largest and biggest family brewers in the world) one constant has been Worthington's support of the great game. Worthington's recognises there is nothing that goes together better than a "pint of good ale and the great game of rugby". No where is this appreciated more than with the knowledge and passionate Kingsholm supporters.
