Fuller's and Greene King initiatives for Cask Ale Week


Five of Fuller's Master Cellarmen pubs are opening their cellar doors during Cask Ale Week to the public, so that they can see what an award-winning cellar looks like. We all know what the beer looks like at the end but it takes a lot of dedication and care to make sure every pint is of the highest quality.

Master Cellarman status is awarded to Fuller's pubs who achieve over 95% score on four visits by Fuller's Trade Quality team to establish cleanliness and quality of beer, so their cellars really are the best of the Fuller's pub estate.

The following pubs are opening during the afternoon (precise times to be confirmed), to allow everyone to see how a pub's cellar runs, from the deliveries in, through nurturing the beer during secondary fermentation, and to the point of dispense at the bar.

The Swan Hotel, Staines

The Fox & Pelican, Hindhead

The Harpenden Arms, Harpenden

Red Lion, Barnes

The Holly Bush, Potters Crouch, Nr St Albans
