Young’s denies possible pubs deal

The Publican reports that Young & Co. has denied weekend press speculation that the pub group is soon to be sold.

Media reports suggested that following recent changes at the Wandsworth brewer – which have seen the sale of its historic Ram brewery – plus the death of its long time chairman John Young the group was an ideal candidate for a bid.

However, chief executive Steve Goodyear said the reports were without foundation.

“I’ve no idea where this came from, but we have no intention of selling the business,” he said.

The beer we known as Young’s is now brewed by Wells & Young’s Brewing Co.
