The Final regular comedy night of the season is upon us, so to celebrate the end of another successful season and also the opening of the 6th Annual Cider & Sausage Festival, we have a very special offer for you!
Finally after many months of preparing and many years in the asking, we have launched our ‘Gold’ in bottle.
We are very delighted to announce that ‘The Good Pub Guide 2016’ has been published and The Grainstore Brewery has been awarded the title of ‘Own Brew Pub of the Year’.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our Customers, both Bar and Brewery a Merry Christmas and a Very Hoppy New Beer. Thank you for all of your custom in 2017 and we look forward to seeing you all in 2018.
We made this just for you and we hope it brings a smile to your face this Christmas Holiday.
