Purity Brewing Company named 2018’s Brewery of the Year by The Good Pub Guide

 Purity Brewing Company is celebrating after being named Brewery of the Year for 2018 by The Good Pub Guide.


The highly-regarded annual travel guide, which has been listing and rating pubs up and down the country since 1982, has recently started including breweries and has named Purity as the best in the business.


The brewery has been recognised for its dedication to consistent quality and its ‘Pure Eco’ values, brewing world class beers such as Pure Gold, Mad Goose, Pure UBU, Lawless Lager and Longhorn IPA on a working farm in the stunning Warwickshire countryside.


Purity’s commitment to the perfect pint also includes expert training at the pubs which store and serve its award-winning beers, many of which feature in this year’s Good Pub Guide.


The accolade comes hot on the heels of Purity’s director of brewing Flo Vialan having been named Brewer of the Year at the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group Beer Awards this summer.


The Good Pub Guide editor, Fiona Stapley, comments: “Purity Brewing Company has been getting rave reviews from our trusted readers for its award-winning ales and we are delighted to name them as our Brewery of the Year 2018. The brewery is on a working farm in lovely Warwickshire countryside and apart from excellent beers, it’s the eco-friendly and energy-efficient brewing process that also appeals to us.”


Purity MD Paul Halsey, said: “This is fantastic news. The Good Pub Guide is a very well renowned and respected part of British pub culture so we’re thrilled to be named best brewery. A huge thanks to the team behind the guide and to everyone at Purity who works hard to ensure we always deliver pure quality. And as always, the biggest thanks go to our customers, the people who make it all worthwhile. Cheers.”
