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.
Stoney Ford Brew Co Ltd, a small batch brewery based in Ryhall, Rutland, has been acquired by Rutland Brewing Co, owners of Grainstore Brewery of Oakham.
The Grainstore Brewery Tap, voted, The Good Pub Guides ‘Own Brew Pub of the Year 2003, 2011, 2014 and now 2016’ is now recruiting.
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.
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.
Finally after many months of preparing and many years in the asking, we have launched our ‘Gold’ in bottle.
On Tuesday 5th January, The Grainstore Brewery will feature in an hour long, opening episode on BBC 2 at 8pm, of a new TV series ‘Victorian Bakers’.
Immediately following this years 17th Annual Beer Festival, the Grainstore Brewery Tap will be closed for three days, from Tuesday 30th August then reopening at 3.30pm on Firday 2nd September 2016.
The Grainstore Brewery has today launched it’s own keg lager, ‘Purus 4’.
Our 5th Annual Cider and Sausage Festival is approaching fast. It promises to be bigger and better than ever before. With great live music and our BBQ every day.
