Top Marque For Beer Quality

Hook Norton Brewery pubs are currently ranking Number 1 when benchmarked against other pubs within the Cask Marque Accreditation Scheme for cask ale beer quality with over 97% at 4 & 5 star rating.

During the unannounced visit, the assessor checks all the cask ales on sale for temperature, taste, appearance and aroma. All the beers must reach the required standard for the pub to pass.

As a brewery, Hook Norton has always and will continue to work with pubs to ensure the beer they brew is looked after and served in the best condition possible.
