Real Ale and Cider make great stocking fillers or ‘Gifts for Dads’. For Christmas 2016, we are pleased to offer a range to suit all tastes!
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.
We’ve got an amazing Summer season lined up here at The Grainstore Brewery, from new menus to our 18th Annual Rutland Beer Festival over the August bank holiday.
The Grainstore Brewery in Station Approach, Oakham, and The Rutland Cake Company at Oakham Enterprise Park have developed a number of cakes and bakes which launched at the Rutland Food and Drink Festival on Sunday, October 29th, with one ingredient in common – beer.
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 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.
The SIBA FSQ was launched in July to provide retailers with an independently assessed quality management mark to help them identify high-quality brewers in a crowded and competitive market place.
Following the successful launch of our range of ciders last year in both 20 litre Bag in Box and 500ml bottle, we are delighted to announce that two of them are now available in 30 litre keg.
