“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whisky is barely enough.” – Mark Twain
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.
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.
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.
The winners of the National Pub & Bar Awards for 2016 have been announced and we are delighted to let everyone know that we have been selected a the winners for Rutland!
