Which is Britain’s Favourite Brewery?

old-photograph-brewers-scotlandAs part of the British Family Fayre this year (www.britishfamilyfayre.co.uk) we are organising a beer festival to quench the thirst of our expected 8,000 revellers. The only issue is, with now more than 1000 breweries in Britain to choose from we need your help to decide which breweries to stock on the day.

We have listed 20 of our favourites below but would love to know what your preferred tipple is. We will then try to get your ‘usual’ at our event on the 3oth August 2014.

  12. There are far too many to choose from, and far too many great ones left out. How about Mws Piws (Purple Moose) from Wales? Ysgawen is a beautiful beer. And Stonehouse from Shropshire, brewers of Station Bitter? And I can’t believe you don’t have Greene King on your list – brewers of the finest beer known to (wo)man, Abbot Ale. Sorry, I’m not making the job any easier…

  13. My beer suggestions are Hogs Back (Tongham) and Rebellion (Marlow). Would definately like to see some Ciders as well. Aspalls and Westons with maybe some smaller ones like http://www.lilleysciderbarn.com/ – their apples and pairs is fantastic.

    Definitely worth a mention is the micro brewery, Pipes Beer: http://www.pipesbeer.co.uk/
    Made in the heart of Cardiff, Wales and vegan friendly!
    They run open bars (with BBQ) first Sat of every month if you fancy a taste!

    The Canadian Giant, ‘Molson Coors Brewing Company’ now own’s ‘Sharp’s’ Brewery! Does it still qualify?
    It hurts when our companies get swallowed up by giant greedy faceless multinationals!

  16. Blacksheep from Masham in Yorkshire – yum!

    Was this review helpful to you? Yes   No

  17. Shepherd and Neame leading! OMG… i know its a matter of opinion and taste but any discerning drinker will tell you that you that we have so much better craft ale than were being asked to vote for here. Fyne Ales Jarl at 3,8% is one of the UK’s most stunning session ales but the selection given misses many breweries with imagination and invention. Master Brew -add more alcohol,= Spitfire add more alcohol =Bishops finger etc.. its the same pint 3 ways. no wonder they don’t want guest ales… Brew dog are breaking new ground as well. All good fun but some beer drinkers should ‘not always holiday in Blackpool’ … try something new!

  19. Being in Gloucestershire, this be cider & perry country, A local man brews a very popular cider called Tosher’s Tipple – does cider count?

    http://www.newnhamonsevern.co.uk/visit/business/toshers-tipple-cider

    He’s also on Facebook. There’s the Freeminer Brewery here in the Forest of Dean too.

    There are so many small breweries up and down the country, all making fab stuff.

    • We will be looking for good quality perry and cider for our fayre too!

      Was this review helpful to you? Yes   No

      • Remember, it’s only genuine perry if it’s been grown and made with the famous landmark, May Hill in view. 😉

        There are so many small local cider producers you’re spoiled for choice, but Tosher’s is tops.

        Was this review helpful to you? Yes   No

      • Aspalls make a very fine draught cider which is dry (can’t stand the sweet stuff). They also make some great bottled ciders although top of the range Premier Cru is a bit strong for me at 7%.

        100% British from East Anglia.

  20. Green Jacks Brewery in Lowestoft Suffolk I like Orange Wheat Beer

    Was this review helpful to you? Yes   No

  21. Sorry but most of these on this list are large breweries and brew some of the most tasteless beers known to man, look at the smaller brewers and you will have a better range of taste and larger visitor capacity
