Commenting on the test, Carling Brand Director Miranda Osborne said: “We’re delighted to be working with Everards and The Old Horse on this trial, which draws on an exciting technology to create an innovative way of reusing spent grains from our local Carling Brewery. 3D printing is only going to become more and more popular, so it’s great to test how it can work for our customers and Carling drinkers.”
The Old Horse Business Owner Kevin Shepherdson said: “Seeing the success of the 3D printer in action really shows the potential for this technology. It’s already got me thinking about all the different things around the pub that we could print in the future! One of the great things about the beer mats is that we can use them again and again.”
Everards Commercial Manager, Giles Mattock said: “We’re delighted to partner with Carling to work on future focused experiments. Over the centuries, pubs have been the hub of innovation where people come together to bring ideas to life and we want to ensure that continues into the future. We’re looking forward to seeing what the customers of The Old Horse think of the 3D printed beermats and are excited to run further experiments in Everards pubs in the coming months.”
The Carling 3D printing filament was the result of a collaboration between 3DFuel.com, C2Renew and Colour Tone Masterbatch. This particular filament is not currently available for sale and is only being used for The Old Horse trial at present.
