The Old Wheatsheaf in Frimley Green has been chosen as an exclusive member of the new Head Brewer’s Club, a collection of Greene King’s hero cask ale pubs.
Following a rigorous selection process, the Old Wheatsheaf was picked by the Bury St Edmunds brewers as worthy of the accolade for its dedication to great cask beer.
Greene King head brewer John Bexon says: “Cask beer is a fresh, natural product, produced with wholesome ingredients. You can’t buy it in the supermarket, it is available only in the pub because it’s fresh. The landlord or landlady finishes off the brewing process in the pub cellar and it is their efforts that determine the quality of beer served to the customer. When served in great condition, cask ale is the best drink in the world and I want to pay tribute to these licensees who do it really well.
“Membership of the Head Brewer’s Club means the guarantee of a great pint and top notch service. The Head Brewer’s plaque of honour will indicate the high standards you can expect. Hearty congratulations to Robert and Davidof the Old Wheatsheaf on their achievement.”
Robert Armour, licensee of the Old Wheatsheaf for the last 11 years, says: “We’re very proud to be chosen to join the Head Brewer’s Club. We know our customers love our ale and are very proud that the brewers have also given us their seal of approval.
“There is a real enthusiasm for cask beer, so now is the time to try it if you aren’t already an avid fan”.
