Palmers Master

We are delighted to announce that the Anchor Inn at Seatown are the winners of the Palmers Brewery Master Cellarman of the Year competition 2016.

Runners up are the Crown Bridport and Marquis of Lorne Nettlecombe.

Palmers 54 pubs are audited every four months and are scored on the quality of their cellar operations. This year a record 28 licensees achieved Master Cellarman status, scoring 145 out of a possible 150 points over the year.

Jayson Perfect, Palmers Tenanted Trade Director said ‘producing and serving our award winning real ales remains at the very heart of our business. We have seen the standard of cellars in our pubs improve year on year, this has been reflected in the scores achieved in the Master Cellarman competition and in the volume of real ale that our pubs sell.

‘Congratulations goes to Paul and his team at the Anchor who maintain an exceptional cellar in one of our busiest pubs.’

Last year’s winners, The Ropemakers in Bridport (who are not allowed to hold the trophy two years in a row) maintained their Master Cellarman status, even improving on their impressive score from 2015.
