Joule's brewery will be opening it's famous brewery doors to the public on Saturday 27th September to celebrate Market Drayton's Medieval Damson Day Fayre, as well as National Cask Ale Week.  Throughout the day Joule's will be offering both samples of its fine ales as well as brewery tour vouchers, which can be used at either one of the 11am or 1pm tour sessions.

Joule’s Brewery is delighted to announce its involvement once again in this years towns’ Medieval Fayre, taking place next Saturday 27th September.  The Brewery will be treating visitors to fine ale sampling in the town with an opportunity to visit the brewery together with free beer vouchers.

Joule’s have been working closely over the last few months with Medieval Fayre organiser Mark Whittle, and will be positioning the popular Joule’s event bar in the town’s high street with an offering of Joule’s fine ales.  In addition to the ale sampling, the Brewery will be handing out Brewery Tour vouchers during the day, to join two fully organised Brewery Tours, that will take place at 11am and 1pm from the Red Lion, Brewery Tap.  The Brewery Tours will give visitors an opporuntiy to see how the famous Joule’s ales are produced and also an opportunity to meet and chat with the brewers.

The Brewery Open Day event not only supports the town’s local fayre, but  is also a celebration of cask ales and Britain's national drink; the home of cask ale and the great British pub.  British brewery’s are encouraged to open up thier brewery to the public or offer free pints; Joule’s Brewery will be doing both.   All visitors to the Brewery Tours at the Brewery Tap, the Red Lion,  will be given three ½ pint vouchers which can be redeemed in both the Red Lion and Sandbrook Vaults in Market Drayton, complimented with a fine selection of tasty home made steak and ale pies, served up with hand cut chips, seasonal veg and gravy.

Trudie from Joule’s commented, ‘this is a really exciting day for us.  Celebrating Cask  Ale week and being part of the town’s medieval fayre  allows us to reveal some of the  Joule’s heritage which all began in the 1400s with Monks in a local monastery brewing the Joule’s Pale Ale for the first time.  We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Brewery on Saturday to share some of the interesting historic stories and the new Joule's chapter here in Market Drayton.
