FWIW I think it was the Bass Museum; then the Coors Visitor Centre; then
Coors closed it (not profitable enough etc.) for a couple of years; then
some of the rest of the trade chipped in on the running costs, and it
reopened recently as the National Brewery Centre. You can see signs with all
the different names on at various points around Burton.

Yep - I believe the Worthington White Shield has quite a reputation.
who doesn't drink beer, but works in Burton adjacent to the Coors brewery -
in fact, I could probably see the NBC out of my office window were it not
for some ruddy great big towers of lager getting in the way...
