Brewery lays down real ale challenge to other brewers

The owners of the Milk Street Brewery in Frome are marking its 10th anniversary with a beer festival.

Rik Lyall and Nick Bramwell took over the Griffin pub, and created Milk Street Brewery, in 1999. Since then the business has turned into one of the most successful licensed premises in town although Nick left a year ago and Rik now runs it as a sole venture.

The past six months has seen many changes at the pub, and bank holiday weekend will mark the completion of all their hard work.

To mark the brewery’s anniversary, the Griffin is opening its doors to the competition.

The pub’s manager Charlie Thomas said: “Just to prove we really do produce the finest real ales in the land, we will be inviting all the reputable breweries from the area to bring their best beers, for our discerning customers to sample.

“A host of marvellous musicians will be rocking throughout the weekend and we will host a barbecue as well.”

Slippery Fish will kick off proceedings tomorrow.

Miss Thomas added: “It promises to be a fantastic weekend and we hope people will come along to celebrate with us.”
