Who are Cask Marque?

annabel theakstons

Cask Marque is an independent non profit making organisation set up to improve the quality of cask beer in pubs. This is done by highlighting the importance of beer quality to licensees, brewers and pub owners and encouraging pubs to gain an accreditation. If you are interested in joining click here.

To gain this accreditation a qualified assessor visits the pub unannounced on at least two occasions and samples all the cask beers on sale. If the quality reaches our required standards then they gain the award and we will promote the pub to the public as an outlet where you are guaranteed a great pint of cask beer.

What do we do?
There are three areas to Cask Marque
  1. The main focus is the accreditation scheme and promoting Cask Marque pubs
  2. We carry out a variety of auditing tasks for brewers and pub owners, checking the quality of cask beer and other drinks in the pub and auditing cellars to ensure best practice and health and safety are being adhered to
  3. In 2011 we carried out 287 1-day courses in cellar management training allowing those in the industry to be correctly trained in all aspects of cellar management. There is a Bii accredited exam associated with this called the ABCQ (Award in Beer & Cellar Quality).
What else do we get involved in?
As well as the work we carry out above we also support a number of different companies, organisations and initiatives within the industry. These include:

If you have any questions about what we do or how we operate we would be pleased to speak to you or receive your email.

Cask Marque is supported by many companies in the brewing industry. Sponsors support their pubs or customers by sponsoring them to try and gain Cask Marque Accreditation. Should they fail an inspection then the sponsor will provide advice on how to remedy the problem.

Below are the companies which are currently Cask Marque sponsors. If you stock beers from or are owned by the companies there is a possibility they will sponsor you. All sponsorship must be agreed with the brewers/pub owners but can often be done via Cask Marque.
