At The Grainstore Brewery, we pride ourselves on brewing our ales the traditional way and as such, we’re always in touch with the seasons.
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.
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.
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.

Launching at the beginning of September for a limited run only will be The Grainstore Brewery’s salute to the Rugby World Cup 2015.
Following hot on the heals of our success in The Good Pub Guide 2016, with the Own Brew Pub of the Year Award, we have now had confirmation of our inclusion in CAMRAs Good Beer Guide for 2016.
