Gloucestershire pub set to open

Wye Valley Brewery is delighted to announce the opening of The Pelican Inn in Gloucester.

The Pelican Inn is one of Gloucester’s heritage pubs and can trace its history back to 1679. It has been given a thorough refurbishment and now boasts an attractive beer garden.

Said Vernon Amor Managing Director of Wye Valley Brewery ‘We are passionate about pubs, we believe they play an important role in our communities as they are the outlet for our national drink, cask conditioned beer. New landlord Mike is a top notch licensee serving the best quality cask beer. We are delighted that he will be working with us in Gloucester.’

Wye Valley Brewery promote Real Ale for Jubilee Celebrations

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Wye Valley Brewery will be offering free bunting to the first 60 people to order a polypin of real ale for the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.

With the nation awash in red white and blue in preparation for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations over the four-day weekend, many people have planned parties and community celebrations. What better way to toast this historic national event, claims Wye Valley Brewery, than with a glass of our national drink, locally crafted, using Herefordshire hops?

Wye Valley Brewery is well and truly into the spirit of the Jubilee. In cask, they have produced a Jubilee edition of their Dorothy Goodbody’s Golden Ale with a specially designed commemorative pump clip (which sold out at the beginning of May). Additionally the brewery anticipates strong demand for their polypins, which provide 36 pints of delicious, fresh, real ale.

To mark the occasion the first 60 polypins to be ordered for the week commencing the 28th May will all be provided with a free 5 metre length of red, white and blue bunting, essential for any Jubilee celebration.

Said Vernon Amor Managing Director of Wye Valley Brewery, “The extended Jubilee weekend is a great chance to get together with friends and neighbours. Beer is a great choice for these events, and polypins provide authentic real ale, the closest you can get to a great pint from a pub.”
