The Brandy Cask, May 2001

Pershore's a pleasant little market town tucked away in the Worcestershire countryside between Evesham and Worcester on the main A44 road. The Brandy Cask is situated right in the centre of town and is rightfully very popular with locals and visitors from the surrounding area. A very traditional feel in the main bar area with an impressive number of handpumps positioned prominently on the bar. The brewery itself, which you can view in a separate building just to the rear of the main pub, has been in operation since 1995. They brew 4 reasonably-priced regular real ales, the most well known and personal favourite of mine being Brandy Snapper (abv 4%). It's well worth trying for its addictive malty and hoppy taste - perhaps a beer more for the connoisseur to enjoy as its perhaps a little too flavoursome for someone who's just discovered the wonders of drinking proper beer. Also worth mentioning their annual beer festival which I understand is held over the August Bank Holiday.

During the summer months their colourful relaxing beer garden is well worth a visit. You can't miss the large round fishpond filled with koi. Beyond, the lovely landscaped garden leads down to the River Avon. The occasional visitor arrives by boat! There are plenty of picnic sets to rest on and enjoy the fine real ale and country air. For the hungry, the helpful staff serve a range of dishes upwards from sandwiches to more substantial salads and steak dishes.
