Wolves boss gets a taste for Banks’s

The new boss at Wolves football club, Jeff Shi, is thirsty for success – and keen to sample more of Banks’s Brewery’s finest.

Jeff Shi spent most of July in a hotel in Wolverhampton, leading the negotiations for his company, the Fosun Group, to buy Wolves Football Club.

Finding a rare moment of leisure, he asked about the local beer. Naturally, they recommended Banks’s. “I now know the brewery is here – and the beer tasted very good!” Jeff told the Express & Star newspaper.

After this public declaration of love, he was soon presented with a gift selection of bottles from the brewery.

Head Brewer Tom Spencer, said: “Some of Wolves’ most avid supporters are at our brewery and I think we demonstrate that heartland passion in our brewing. Banks’s represents Wolverhampton pride. It was great to hear that Jeff is a fan.”

The brewery has offered Jeff Shi a personal brewery tour. And Tom and the team will be hoping that Banks’s will help propel Jeff towards his goal of taking the club into the Premier League.
