A couple who took over The Bell in Clare last year have won an award for the quality of their beer.

Daniel Esplen and Zainab Khan have been awarded the Cask Marque accreditation for serving the perfect pint of cask conditioned ale.

“This award is a great endorsement for us,” said Daniel. “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.”

Backed by 50 of the country’s leading brewers and pub companies, Cask Marque accreditation is only awarded to licensees whose ale passes a series of independent quality audits of both beer and cellar standards.

Since its foundation in 1998, Cask Marque has inspected more than 750,000 pints of beer and accredited some 10,000 pubs.

Cask Marque director Paul Nunny said: “Daniel and Zainab should feel justifiably proud of this great achievement, which not only recognises the effort they put into serving the perfect pint, but also acts as an independent guarantee of quality for customers.

“All too often, publicans don’t appreciate the care and attention cask beers require and then run the risk of losing custom by serving pints that are below par.”
