Hot off the press! We're delighted to be announced alongside 14 other breweries as the UK and Irelands best regional breweries - such a great honour! Thank you to Melissa Cole and Expedia for including us in what is a prestigious line-up.
Official Press Release:
Beer sommelier Melissa Cole teams up with Expedia.co.uk to reveal the UK and Ireland’s best regional breweries.
Expedia.co.uk highlights some of the best regional breweries in the UK and Ireland with the help of beer sommelier Melissa Cole. The partnership between the OTA and the beer sommelier has led to the creation of an interactive map which plots the location of each brewery.
The map, which also includes information about the breweries and their must-try ales, is aimed at travellers planning a cottage break. With destinations throughout both the UK and Ireland, it is designed to inspire holidaymakers to get to know the food and drink in the local area where they are staying.
Windsor and Eton is featured along with Melissa’s must try recommendations of Republika and Treason. According to Melissa, “in the shadow of Windsor castle lies Windsor and Eton Brewery and Uprising Brewery, its rebellious child. They make everything from luscious lager to dark-hearted stouts, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable.” This feature of our brewery puts us in a list of just 15 top UK and Ireland breweries as recommended by Melissa Cole, who is also an author and award-winning beer and food writer.
Throughout the year, Expedia will be inviting food and drink bloggers to develop original recipes inspired by the must-try ales as recommended by Melissa, to show that the holiday can continue once travellers return home from their cottage stays in the UK and Ireland.
The brewery map is available to view online throughout 2017 here.
