We’re proud to have been named “Brewery of the Year” in the Good Pub Guide.
A fantastic award from one of the best-respected publications in the industry and reward for the hard work of the Oakham team and our commitment to brewing great beers for our customers.
The 2020 edition of the prestigious Guide was published today and Fiona Stapley, Editor of Good Pub Guide, told us “Your prices are fair, your award-winning beers are excellent as well as interesting and you are constantly coming up with new ideas and branching out to reach new areas rather than just sticking to what you know. Your innovation and enthusiasm for the company really stands out. So we feel this is a well deserved accolade.”.
This is proving to be a very special year, with brewery expansion plans well underway and now another major accolade to follow on from our best selling Oakham Citra being awarded “Champion Golden Beer of Britain” and Bronze in the overall “Supreme Champion Beer” competition at this year’s Great British Beer Festival.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve appeared in the Good Pub Guide. In fact, over the last two decades, we’ve won their “Own Brew Pub of the Year” award three times for the Brewery Tap in Peterborough.
Fiona Stapley explained the process behind the award: “We have thousands of readers on our database who send us regular reports and letters and thoughts about pubs and beers in general, as well as specific details on pubs they visit. I always keep a careful check on reports over the year to see what highlights stand out and Oakham Ales have come in for particular praise – for your regular beers as well as your seasonal ones. And they love the Brewery Tap in Peterborough of course.”
