Like all the best traditions, we return once again with our Christmas Card to you all.
There are, sadly, lots of Publicans who have little or no training in handling beer or good cellar practice. This is usually through no fault of their own.
The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) is launching its ‘Manifesto for British Beer’ today (9 March), calling on prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) to pledge their backing for the thriving local brewing sector and the thousands of jobs it supports.
We want you. The Grainstore Brewery is now recruiting a Junior Sales Person. Experience preferred but not essential. Good Package on offer. Closing date for applications is Tuesday 31st May.
We’ve won an award! Congratulations to Dan and his kitchen team for their Bronze Award.
So, whilst trawling through the internet in the dead of night, contemplating the inevitable round of annual price hikes from the major brewers, duty increases from our ‘pro Britain’ government and the general downturn in trade after Christmas, we stumbled across this great Blog post from Beer Nouveau of Manchester, called ‘Costs, Quality and that Elusive Profit’. So worthy is it of a read, that we thought we would copy it to our own Blog too, with full credit being given to it’s original author Steve.
Oakham isn’t exactly on the beaten track for big names, acts and musicians and yet The Grainstore has welcomed some huge names through its doors over the years.
Finally after many months of preparing and many years in the asking, we have launched our ‘Gold’ in bottle.
Blue Monday, as it’s commonly dubbed across the Northern Hemisphere, hits us next week. It’s the Monday in the middle of January, between New Year’s Day and payday when we’re all skint, the weather is rubbish and the Winter is still stretching out before us. But here at The Grainstore Brewery, we’re anything but blue.
