Is one of these great pubs near you?
Is there anything better than diving into a beer that's been brewed on-site, being able to inhale the smell of the brewing process while you're slurping on the results and feeling completely in touch with your pint's provenance?
It's not just for serious beer anoraks either - our resident beer expert Melissa Cole thinks good beer is in reach of all of us. So we got her to put together a list of some of her top brewpubs - pubs brewing their own beer. Is one of these great pubs near you?

good on ya pal, guess what i already do brew my own. Dont,t care what the goverment says you aint taking my pint away from me, i deserve it. I work dam hard for it, ill say that again i work dam hard for my money. Not everyone wants to go silly cycling and jogging through the town centre just to show off. Some of us want to relax and enjoy life at a steady pace and that is good enough a life for us, so cheers to the drinkers.
I love a good quality pint, so do me pals and lasses. Great company and great conversation also, none of that call centre rubbish and office crap. Just a good conversation amongst friends and good laughs all round, god bless ya.
Fat Cat in Sheffield. So good you find their beers in major supermarkets.
This article is bone idle journalism. What did you do look through Yell for london?
I wonder how many of the younger crowd drink real ale or bitter ? . I used to drink many of our local beers but so many have been taken over by bigger breweries it's hard to keep track .
The taste has changed that much over the years I don't blame people for drinking lager , the taste seems more constant over different parts of the country . Most of our older crowd used to go out 2 or 3 times a week and the odd afternoon , but since the smoking ban , it's down to the odd summer Friday or Saturday . Cans & bottles, are I think the norm in front of the t.v. and in years to come you will have to travel to find a old fashioned pub . It will be another bit of old Britain to have gone the way of the dodo in 20-30 years .
On the contrary....tolerance and good will very much my attitude! It's just I much prefer visiting pubs and restaurants for a good night and not coming home stinking of stale second hand smoke and with a sore throat. I do not miss the days of smokey pubs I'm afraid. Commonsense says the preference of the minority should not be permitted to impact on the comfort and health of the majority.
That said... happy christmas!
if you want a decent bottled beer try Marstons Old Empire available in usual supermarkets...superb stuff.
Give Deucars a try too thats a great beer from edinburgh
there is to many do gooders in this country, time to get the pubs open again and have some normal conversation and good times. None of this false rubbish we see everywhere, that aint living at all, that is living like you are on your nerves edge. We need good pubs and good times back and i bet you it does come back, in fact i know it will come back. As we have learnt to many people are obsessed with money you have gone mad with money it has consumed you completely and sent you right off the rails. Good thing i saw what labour was going to do to the credit system, hey hey eyyyy labour you did,nt ge me, ((((((( sticking me tongue out ))))),,,, yep thats right some of us know when to stear clear of idiots like you.
Raise ya pint for the strength of the good honest Englishman and women god bless ya, yep im poor, yep im havent got a lot in me pockets, but by hook or by crook im going to live my life in a good old kness style, if you want ot send the world in depths of doom get on with it, because no matter what i say or other good people, you will never listen what so every.
Cheers to all teh drinkers and good common folk who do all the hard graft and back breaking work, with out us they would be nothing.
