    Microbrewery Insurance

    Microbreweries are small-scale breweries that produce beer in limited quantities, typically much smaller than large-scale corporate breweries. They often emphasize quality, flavour experimentation, and unique brewing techniques over mass production.


    Here are some key aspects:


    1. Size: Microbreweries are characterized by their relatively small production capacity compared to larger breweries. While there’s no strict definition, they typically produce fewer than 15,000 barrels of beer per year.
    2. Independence: Microbreweries are usually independent, meaning they’re not owned by major beverage corporations. This independence allows them more freedom to experiment with different recipes and styles.
    3. Craftsmanship: Microbreweries often focus on the craft of brewing, prioritizing quality ingredients and hands-on brewing techniques. This attention to detail often results in beers with unique flavors and characteristics.
    4. Local Focus: Many microbreweries have a strong connection to their local communities. They often source ingredients locally when possible and may even distribute their beer primarily within a limited geographic area.
    5. Community Engagement: Microbreweries often serve as gathering places within their communities, hosting events, fundraisers, and other social activities. This fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among beer enthusiasts.


    Overall, microbreweries play a significant role in the modern beer industry by offering consumers a diverse range of high-quality, artisanal beers while contributing to local economies and communities.


    Similarly so does a micro pub which is a small licensed establishment, usually consisting of just one small room with a bar. The primary focus in most micro pubs is serving unique, local beer and ales of the sort that you won’t find in run-of-the-mill chain pubs, often sourcing drinks from independent microbreweries in the local area.


    A micro pub is always independently owned, meaning it isn’t owned by a brewery or larger company. Unlike a leasehold public house — where the pub landlord can only serve the drinks and beers supplied by the brewery that owns the building — an independent free house can serve whatever beers and ales the owner likes.


    As a micro pub owner you’ll need to set aside some money in your budget for insurance costs. Once you’ve found your venue, you’ll need to get quotes for the following types of insurance cover such as:


    • Buildings and contents insurance.
    • Public liability insurance.
    • Employer’s liability insurance (if you plan to start hiring staff at some point).

    The exact cost of these policies will depend on a number of things, such as the size of your micro pub, your opening hours, and the type of activities you plan to offer. If you only plan to get a licence to serve beer (and no wine or spirits) then this can also affect the price, too.


    A gastropub is a type of bar or pub that specializes in serving high-quality food alongside a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, particularly craft beers and fine wines. The term “gastropub” is a combination of “gastronomy” (the art or practice of cooking and eating good food) and “pub” Unlike traditional pubs that may focus primarily on drinks and simple, often fried, foods, gastropubs elevate the culinary experience by offering a menu of more sophisticated and creative dishes, often prepared with locally-sourced ingredients or with a particular emphasis on seasonal and artisanal fare.
