Brewhouse & Kitchen, based in the vibrant Brewery Quarter, and part of the UK’s largest brewpub group with 23 venues, was named the winners of “Pub Brand of the Year 2022” at the National Pub & Bar Awards. The award was accepted on behalf of the company by co-founders Kris Gumbrell (CEO) and Simon Bunn (MD).
The innovative brand has a reputation for creating beers that are hyper-local -all brewed on site, with recipes specific to each of its locations, and these form part of the unique offering of an amazing 70+ craft beers & ciders to B&K guests!
The brand also places a large emphasis on its food, with every dish on the menu being matched to one of their draught beers. Another interesting aspect of Brewhouse & Kitchen’s offer (and something which was picked out as part of the judging process) was the brand’s focus on the range of experiences it offers, including offering guests the opportunity to roll their sleeves up and spend a day brewing a craft beer with on a B&K microbrewery, delving into a masterclass of pairing craft beer with whisky or attending a gin tasting masterclass.
Matt Preisinger (Marketing & Brand Director) commented “We’re over the moon for Brewhouse & Kitchen to receive this award! We have always had a big focus on innovating within the pub arena and continuing to do so by further developing our food, drink and experience offer is absolutely at the forefront of our plans for the future”.
