A SOWERBY Bridge pub can officially claim to pull the perfect pint after its ales were awarded a faultless rating by beer experts.

The Moorings’ real ale selection scored 100 per cent across the board in an assessment by the Cask Marque Trust.

The achievement is high praise indeed – the trust assesses more than 7,000 pubs each year and only 2 per cent score 100 per cent on six beers or more.

Emma Tordoff, manager, said: “This award is a great endorsement for us.

“A lot of our customers visit the pub especially for the cask ale and it is really gratifying to know that we are getting the formula just right.”

She said bar managers Oliver Gallanders and Scott Parkinson and their team all deserved credit for the accolade.

“They are fastidious when it comes to the care of the beer at every stage of its journey from the cellar to the customer,” she said.

Cask Marque accreditation is only awarded to licencees whose ale passes a series of rigorous independent quality audits.

Cask Marque director Paul Nunny said: “Congratulations to The Moorings for a fantastic achievement.

“It requires real skill and dedication to stock six cask ales and ensure that the quality is first class on each one and is just what customers will be looking for.

“I, for one, will certainly be visiting them next time I’m in West Yorkshire,” he said.
