Default Brewery award!


A great accolade has been bestowed upon a Bromsgrove brewery ;~)
it seems the accolade is the brewery being listed in GBG - still 10/10
for good PR!
cheers

Don't get too excited. If you read the GBG it will clearly indicate that the
beers are actually brewed by Weatheroak up the road!

Still worth visiting the Gate though (current local branch pub of the year).

whether they had got round to setting up themselves.

all real ale brewery's are listed in the GBG, nothing to do with PR,
its a accolade if a pub gets selected which are voted on by CAMRA
members,

I think the point being made was that the owner had done a good job in
publicising the fact that his "brewery" was in the Good Beer Guide.
In addition, if you re-read the above, you will note that the "brewery"
isn't in actual fact a brewery!

I mustn't have spotted these responses. - yes Brett, that was my
point, but I shouldn't take the mick too loudly, as I also run a
"cuckoo brewery" & we too get a mention in the GBG! - but I don't
publicise it as a great accolade :~)
cheers
MikeMcG.

Surely it must be tempting to crow about being in the top 640? ;-)

Interesting issue, cuckoo brewing, and one I've been reading about in
Tim Webb's good beer guide to Belgium, having finally managed to get
time to shop for beer over there. He draws attention to the phenomenon
of beers being contracted out even by brewers who continue to run
their own plant, and also the phenomenon of the Proef brewery at
Lochristi which puts out beers under 200 or so different brewery names
for cuckoo brewers. Though he doesn't give these brewers any more than
a mention in a list, perhaps they deserve more attention [assuming the
information is available]. After all, he implies that the output from
Lochristi is of a generally high standard [the PBA beers I sampled in
Charleville Mezieres in France last year were not bad]. And variety is
the spice of life.

I haven't had the pleasure of sampling any of Mike's beers, though one
day I'll track them down somewhere I'm sure. As long as they are
regularly available and they meet the criteria why should they not
feature in the GBG?

Sorry, before he corrects me, Betwixt Beer Co - with this name, he
doesn't pretend to be a brewery in the bricks and mortar sense.
