Pub-goers and publicans facing weeks of lockdown will have the chance to brush up on their cellarmanship skills with the release of the new CAMRA title, Cellarmanship, by Patrick O’Neill.

Considered the must-have book for professionals in the drink trade, Cellarmanship covers all you need to know about running a good cellar and ensuring that the pint you serve does both pub and brewer proud.

Author Patrick O’Neill shares decades of experience, detailed technical expertise and a lifetime of passion and enthusiasm for real ale. With step-by-step instructions, concise knowledge and interesting anecdotes, it is a book to keep and refer to time and time again.

O’Neill says: “With the nation’s pubs closed for the foreseeable future, publicans usually run off their feet may enjoy the opportunity to brush up on the art of keeping cask ale with this handy guide.

Cellarmanship provides essential advice for anyone training to work in a pub, cellar, beer festival or just who are generally interested in learning more about the technicalities of storing, keeping and serving Britain’s favourite drink. 

“When Britain’s pubs re-open, we can all celebrate with a pint of real ale – kept, stored and served to perfection!”

Patrick O’Neill will be answering questions from pub-goers and publicans tonight from 7-8pm to launch his new title. You can join in by visiting the Facebook group Pulling Together for Pubs, Pints and People.

Cellarmanship is available for online purchase at shop.camra.org.uk, retailing at £12.99 (CAMRA Member price £10.99)
