Butcombe Brewery has today been announced as the first brewery to be accredited with Grain to Glass quality assurance by Cask Marque.

This has seen Butcombe audited and assessed over a six month period, covering Health & Safety, Legal Compliance and Product Quality within the Butcombe Brewery, and also saw their warehousing gain the Distribution Charter confirming their storage and handling of cask ale is all in perfect order.
Butcombe’s pubs are all subject to annual cellar inspections by Cask Marque and star rated via Scores on the Doors and all of the brewers 21 pubs hold the Cask Marque award for beer quality in the glass.
The news today was delivered at the annual Cask Marque AGM in London by Cask Marque Director, Paul Nunny who commented “This is a magnificent achievement by Butcombe and a commitment that endorses them as a quality brewer and pub retailer. Many people talk a good story but Butcombe committed itself to an independent inspection to examine their practices. We hope other brewers will follow in their leadership.”
Butcombe Brewery Managing Director, Geraint Williams enthused “Everything we do here at Butcombe revolves around our Beer. That’s the way it’s always been for us. Beer is the hero for us and to have our dedication to our craft recognised by the industry is fantastic. Being the first brewer to be accredited with the Grain to Glass programme just shows how we’re leading the way in quality brewing, just as we have done since day one.”
