Whitbread has partnered with Black Sheep Brewery to produce a limited-edition coffee infused beer - 1742, to celebrate its 275th anniversary.

Made with Costa’s Mocha Italia beans, just 5,000 bottles of the craft brew will be available exclusively at selected Premier Inns across the UK for the next month.

1742 will be Whitbread’s first beer since it turned off the taps in 2000.

Alison Brittain, Whitbread chief executive said: “275 years is a huge milestone for Whitbread, it’s an occasion to celebrate our heritage, history of innovation and most importantly, the people - our 50,000 employees - who make it what it is today. As a company that has evolved with consumer tastes and trends, 1742 seemed the perfect way to both tell our story and celebrate.”
