  • Welcome to the St Austell Brewery Celtic Beer Festival 2012

    On behalf of my colleagues at the Brewery I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to our 14th Festival and my 14th year working behind the Top Bar on the 11am to 2pm shift pulling pints for thirsty customers.

    Well what a summer! The Diamond Jubilee, the European Football Championships and the Olympics all taking place during the wettest summer for 100 years. Although we had much to celebrate during the Olympics, trade was disappointing but sales of our ales led by Tribute continued to blaze a trail that is bucking the national sales trend of cask ales for yet another year. Exports to over fifteen countries around the world together with sales to supermarkets are now starting to make a significant contribution which is also encouraging.

    Following the spectacular Olympics we were proud to host eleven of the Team GB ladies rowing team including Cornish girls Helen Glover (Gold medallist) and Annie Vernon. As you can imagine that was another tough day in the office. I keep telling everyone Im lucky enough to have the best job in the world now theres no doubt!

    Meanwhile on the pub front we have successfully completed major refurbishments at The Globe, Topsham and The Three Crowns, Chagford. We also bought five pubs from Enterprise Inns including our first pub in Bristol The Albion in Clifton. The other four sites which we are delighted to welcome to our estate are The Blue Ball, Exeter; The Cornish Arms, Tavistock; The George, Plympton and The Rose and Crown, Yealmpton.

    During the last few months we have started delivering direct to customers in Bristol and Bath and this is presenting us with some very exciting opportunities. Tribute is being well received by trade customers and consumers alike but, as importantly, so are all our other permanent ales Dartmoor, Trelawny, Proper Job and HSD.

    If you believe in strength in numbers todays Festival illustrates what a wealth of ales we have at our disposal. Congratulations to Roger and his team for brewing up such an amazing line-up of over thirty-five ales!

    All proceeds from the Festival will go towards the St. Austell Brewery Charitable Trust and this figure is typically in the region of 10,000. I am pleased to announce that our nominated charities for 2013 will be Macmillan Cancer Support and the Phoenix Stroke Appeal.

    Thank you as always for your generous support. Enjoy yourselves (responsibly) and best wishes for a Happy Christmas and prosperous 2013.

    James Staughton, Managing Director

    Now the perfect Cornish lager....

    ...is available on draught

  • Welcome From Roger RymanSt Austell Brewery Head Brewer

    Welcome back to the Brewery cellars and the 14th annual Celtic Beer Festival.

    2012 has been a year of celebrations for Britain, what with the Queens Diamond Jubilee, the first ever British win at the Tour de France and outstanding sporting success at the London Olympics and we are pleased to welcome you back to the Brewery cellars to celebrate another great British tradition BEER!

    We launched Korev as the main lager at last years festival and sales have increased by more than 1600% since this time last year! Whilst we are justifiable proud of Korevs success, cask ale production remains the priority of the brewing team and we are proud to feature Tribute as our lead beer of this years festival.

    In order to meet the ongoing popularity of Tribute and our other beers, we have now installed a new Cask Operations Plant (with improved cold cellar storage) which will allow the racking team to fill a firkin (9 gallon cask) in just 12 seconds, increasing our cask racking capabilities from 120 firkins to 300 firkins an hour. The facility has been designed around optimum energy efficiency, including solar panels which have generated over 45,000kW hours since they were installed one year ago, and is currently one of the largest and most efficient racking plants in the country.

    This year has also seen several awards being added to our already overflowing trophy cabinet, but two awards are of particular note. Back in March Tribute was named Regional Cask Ale of the Year 2012 at the Publicans Supplier Awards in London, the biggest event in the pub industrys calendar where the best suppliers to the pub trade are recognised

    for their outstanding efforts. More recently and a bit closer to home, both Admirals Ale and Proper Job won Gold medals in the beer category at the Taste of the Wests Product Awards 2012.

    Once again the last six weeks have seen a flurry of activity in our micro brewery and over 20 new recipes have been developed for your enjoyment. As I said before, todays festival is about celebrating beer and whether you choose to try one of our new special brews or stick with your tried and tested Tribute, please enjoy the day and celebrate sensibly!
