Total beer volumes increased by 5%, and volumes of premium ale by 17.5% following the acquisitions of Ringwood and Wychwood.
The company said it had increased market share in the off-trade during the year.
In the year ahead, its off-trade bottled ale portfolio will be focused on Marston’s Pedigree, Marston’s Old Empire, Hobgoblin, Wychcraft, Brakspear Oxford Gold, Ringwood Old Thumper and Jennings Cumberland Ale.
In a statement on its results, Marston’s said: “It is our view that our portfolio of ale brands can benefit from the longer term growth in eating out in pubs and the continued growth of the off-trade.”
Chief executive Ralph Findlay said: “We remain cautious about the immediate trading outlook but are confident that steps already taken in respect of capital expenditure and cost management are appropriate for the current environment.”
