Closure of House of Beer – what next for real ale lovers?

It was with great sadness we heard about the closure of House of Beer, that oasis of craft-beery loveliness tucked away in a back street in our hometown of Ramsbottom.

It is a great loss to the beer lovers in our town and also to those tourists who visit our picturesque village who enjoy taking locally brewed beer back home with them to drink and enjoy and remind themselves of their enjoyable trip to our lovely part of the world or to put in their beer cellar to enjoy much later on.

House of Beer offered something for everyone. Mainstream big brand craft beer and beer from smaller breweries both near and far. Pasteurised filtered big production beer and, including Rammy Craft, traditional and now somewhat uncommonly bottle conditioned product with “nowt taken out”.

True, the town now has a new venue, Grape and Grain. But given their stock preferences in beer terms the closure of House of Beer has left a big hole in the distribution of locally brewed beers. <u>So what is the availability of our beers now if you live in Ramsbottom?</u>
