Sam Croft and Leanne Skinner of the Grove Lock, Leighton Buzzard have achieved Master Cellarman status.
The award recognises consistently outstanding cellar quality in Fuller’s pubs, with managers and tenants needing to sustain a score of at least 96% across four visits from Fuller’s Beer Quality Team throughout the year.
Fuller’s offers in-depth cellar training courses to provide pub teams with the necessary skills to ensure our customers always get the best possible pint in a Fuller’s pub.
Pub manager Sam Croft said: “It’s an amazing honour to be given this status. We work really hard at The Grove Lock to make sure each pint is of the best quality possible and it’s great to be recognised in this way. But it’s a real team effort, so I’d like to thank everyone at the pub, especially my assistant manager Karen Cheevers, because it’s not just the quality of the cellar, it’s also about the quality at the bar and service that you receive.”
John Keeling, head brewer, said: “It’s such a pleasure to give this award to a person who lives and breathes cask ale.”
