The Brewers of Cornwall have united to form a group called the Cornish Brewers Alliance. It has began as an informal meeting and discussion group that will socialise once a month to see if we can become stronger as a united front. Meetings have taken place at St Austell & The Driftwood Spas on the last Wednesday of the previous months. A great gathering of brewers talking all things beer.
Julys August Event was held at St Austell Brewery. An evening hosted by Roger Ryman himself. St Austell Brewery head brewer. We gathered in the visitor centre with a fine selection of ales on offer. A quick tour of the brewery guided by the man with enough knowledge about the brewery to write a history of its origin and inner workings.
We gathered after in the visitors centre to discuss our aims and objectives. future ale festivals and buying consortiums were all discussed along with having a CBA tent at next years Royal Cornwall Show.
The competitive nature of the brewing industry makes events like these a rare occurrence. We fight to the death to win accounts but sometimes it is refreshing to enjoy a pint together when battle is done. A buoyant time in the market is seeing rewards for all. St Ives Brewery is delighted to be a part of The Cornish Brewers Alliance.
