Roger Protz has a unique relationship with the established and exceptionally talented Family Brewers of Britain. Roger has insight and experience of global beer trends that he has gleaned across five decades of writing about them and working alongside the Campaign for Real Ale. This is his latest title and it will take you on a journey of discovery to highlight the accomplishments of a select group of independent family brewers who have been the backbone and launchpad for many of the new and established breweries in Britain today.
Buy this book and celebrate this coming together of these highly driven individuals who are so tied to the world of brewing and beer that they have been supplying us with real ale for over 300 years! The family brewers of Britain are so intrinsic to the British cultural landscape that with over 4,500 years of brewing experience between them they are at the forefront of the UK’s brewing and pub tradition.
With this title you will be introduced to each of the family breweries and will be given a detailed tour of their history, accomplishments and operations. You will learn how they have worked to transform the landscape and towns with which they have close ties. You will see how they continue to work within an explosion of small breweries and the competition of great homogenous corporations. And you will find that although their world has altered beyond measure, they are still a family operation at heart.
