Another Quality Award for The Plough & Harrow.
The ‘Cask Marque’ is an award for pubs which serve great quality cask ale.
Cask Marque is an independent company funded by brewers, pub groups and trade bodies (see below) with the aim of improving beer quality through an accreditation scheme.
Qualified assessors make over 20,000 visits a year to over 9,000 pubs which hold the award.
They test for temperature (to score full marks the beer should be between 10 – 14 degrees), appearance, aroma and taste.
All beers must make the grade to pass the visit.
Accredited pubs are then promoted through the CaskFinder App, CaskFinder Online and through the plaque and point of sale at the pub.
Recent independent research by Cardinal for the 2014 Cask Report identified that 71% of beer drinkers recognised the Cask Marque plaque as a badge of quality.
