What is Cask Marque
The ‘Cask Marque’ is an award for pubs that serve great quality cask ale. Cask Marque is an independent company funded by brewers, pub groups and trade bodies with the aim of improving beer quality through an accreditation scheme. Qualified assessors make over 16,000 visits a year to over 8,000 pubs which hold the award. They test for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste. All beers must make the grade to pass the visit.
