Standing Up for Cask

Posted by Mike C in Jul 2021

We are proud to support the Cask Marque "Stand Up for Cask" campaign, giving a big shout out to the nation's fabulous cask ales, and to brilliant British pubs adapting and surviving through the toughest of times.

The importance of championing cask beer has never been greater. According to a recent report by the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group, cask beer was responsible pre-pandemic for 72,500 jobs. Then lockdowns saw 87 million pints, worth more than £300 million, being poured down the drain. With them went a whole load of jobs across the supply chain and a huge contribution to the UK and local economies in terms of revenue and taxes.

“Together we stand. Together we can reach millions with a social media crusade. Together we can boost the fortunes of cask beer. And through that, footfall into pubs.” Says Paul Nunny, chair of the Cask Matters Group which is instigating the “Stand Up For Cask” campaign.

Dartmoor Brewery's award-winning range of traditional cask ales can be found in great local pubs across the South West of England, and increasingly further afield.

About Cask Marque

Cask Marque is a not-for-profit organisation aimed at improving the quality of cask ale in pubs. This is done through an accreditation scheme where pubs receive two unannounced visits per year where all cask ale is tested for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste. Visits are carried out by qualified professionals and advice is given on site to help with any training or equipment issues. There are over 10,000 pubs with the award for serving great cask ale and these can be found by downloading the CaskFinder app on Android or IOS.
