Carlsberg has expanded a beer supply deal with Punch Taverns, the UK's largest pub group.

Carlsberg will replace Waverley TBS as the supplier of all guest cask ales to Punch Taverns' estate of managed pubs.

"The deal will add another 300 firkins of beer a week into the Carlsberg UK’s distribution chain and will run until 2012," said Carlsberg. One firkin is roughly equal to 72 pints of beer.
The brewer already has an exclusive deal to distribute all drinks into the Punch tenanted and leased estate.

"Winning this contract is a testament to the quality of our entire distribution chain," said Chris Houlton, sales and distribution director for Carlsberg UK.
