underground Welcome to the Eighteenth issue of Underground - the official publication of Cascade Drinks Moles Brewery and Cascade Public House Management. Once again we would like to thank those of our valued suppliers who have supported us by taking advertising space allowing us to distribute this magazine.... FREE OF CHARGE18 News from the Cascade Drinks group - 201516 MOLES GOES CRAFTY 1_Layout 1 05062015 0834 Page 1 Commented managing director Roger Catte Moles Brewery has always exuded quality with its beers and the pumpclip images we have used have reflected that. We wanted to continue that process but with a strikingly-different look for the new range of craft ales and we believe we have achieved that. The next stage will be to apply the changes to our core brand range which we hope will happen by the end of 2015. The six new beers - THE TUNNELER SIX FINGERS MOWDY JACK LITTLE GENTLEMAN JAILERS DAUGHTER GOLDEN HILLS - will be available by rotation throughout 2015 and 2016. Astute followers of the company might also have noticed that the branding has been carried over to our fleet of delivery vehicles several of which now sport the craft theme see story opposite. Molescelebratesitscraftheritage Moles Brewery has begun a re-branding exercise which will eventually lead to a new look for all of its core and seasonal beers. The process began at the end of 2014 with the introduction of six new craft beers with pumpclips demonstrating a decided departure from the branding synonymous with Moles during the past twenty years. Investmentin newdrays With the ever-changing demands for delivering goods efficiently and quickly its important to maintain a reliable fleet of vehicles on the road. Its also a fact that modern strikingly decorated lorries serve as a moving advertisement for our business whether that be on-road or on-screen yes you might have seen one in the film Hot Fuzz released in 2007 Consequently we at Cascade Drinks endeavour to update our fleet with bigger and better wagons on a regular basis with our most recent additions being a pair of Iveco 712 ton drays which we acquired in 2014. Duly wrapped and promoting the new range of Moles Craft beers as well as our premium ciders see above they can be seen on the roads of the South West spreading the message.

New equipment at the Bowerhill base includes a state-of-the-art caskkegwasher within Moles Brewery which has also taken delivery of a large quantity of shiny new kegs to cope with increased demand for its products. And ably assisting in the movement of said kegs is a brand new forklift truck. To ensure enhanced security throughout the premises an all-seeing CCTV system has been installed. Says Operations Director Keith Reynolds When you are running professional operations like Cascade Drinks and Moles Brewery second-best isnt good enough. We believe in purchasing top quality equipment from leading suppliers helping to make us more efficient as a business. InCidertrading Investingin Bowerhill Welcome Cascade Public House Management the division of Cascade which operates the groups public houses has made a key appointment in Allan Smith who is the CPHMs new Business Development Manager. Allan who has amassed a wealth of knowledge in the industry having worked for Hall Woodhouse amongst other major operators will be responsible for - as his title suggests - developing new business for the pubs by working with the managers to fulfil each sites full potential. Theres no stopping the advance of West Country Gold and Black Rat the two leading cider brands marketed and distributed by Cascade Drinks. Since its introduction in 2014 the former has made huge inroads into the regional medium cider market particularly in its 2-litre PET bottle format where it has become a market-leader. Meanwhile Black Rat is benefiting from off trade cashncarry listings with Booker Bestway Batleys and CostCo in bottle PET and can format.There has also been movement overseas with product shipped to Finland Sweden Austria and Luxembourg this year already. Comments Operations Director Keith Reynolds With both of our cider brands continuing to grow their market share in the UK we have high hopes for them in terms of export with a distributor in a far eastern country keen to take stock and indeed we have already started to export Black Rat to Thailand. underground 3 3_Layout 1 05062015 0842 Page 1 Winning Brands Contact Cascade Drinks on 01225 708842 underground4 4_Layout 1 05062015 0850 Page 1 Theres a New Moon shining over Bristol and its one of ours With its opening in June 2014 Moles Brewery has added a second pub in the city to its portfolio. The beneficiary of a major refurbishment prior to its relaunch the hostelry also adopted a new name in keeping with the increased vibrancy in the Fishponds Road area of the city. People familiar with the old pub will be astounded at the high level of refurbishment which has taken each of the separate social areas of the building and given it a different contemporary look. Four TVs show key live sporting events and naturally there are Moles beers and Black Rat cider on the bar. The company and its staff have wasted little time in sculpting the New Moon into not just a community hostelry but a destination venue in its own right. Aside from generating a welcoming atmosphere for all to enjoy key to that approach has been an emphasis on high quality pub food. Using locally-sourced produce wherever possible - such as bread from a nearby artisan baker Bristols very own Pieminister pies and sausages cooked with Black Rat cider by a Melksham butcher - the fayre has generated 100 positive reviews including top marks from Bristols Secret Shopper - usually unheard off Mention of sausages and theres a bit of a house speciality being created with Thai green and red sausages also on the menu in addition to a Dutch delight the foot- long Pork Frickendake served in a po boy with Mayo and curry ketchup - a big seller. Other house delights include a range of milk shakes as well as speciality teas. Its not all peace and tranquility though. On Saturday night the New Moon comes alive with live music including soul reggae folk jazz and rock including occasional appearances by the Glam Busters recreating the sound of the Seventies and a bit hit on the Bristol circuit.

That was after spending 14 years rescuing and then significantly increasing trade at another Gloucestershire pub only to see the site turned into a petrol station by the property owners. The process underway at their new hostelry should ensure that wont happen again. The Beacon Inn Hotel set just a mile or so from M5 exit 12 in the village of Haresfield was closed in late 2012 and stood empty and unloved for a while until the Lucketts took it on a long lease - which they are looking to convert to a freehold - before reopening in the Summer of 2013. The heart of the community but also a destination pub in its own right the change at the Beacon has been more than just cosmetic with a comprehensive refurbishment programme creating a pubrestaurant that boasts a function room and skittle alley as well as bed breakfast accommodation - 6 rooms now with a further 6 planned. Steve sits on the local parish council and the couple have worked tirelessly to give the pub a key role in village life. As I spoke to him he was busy making plans for the Village Pancake Day one of many events seeking to contribute funds towards the cost of a defibrillator for the community. With teamwork being so important to the future of the Beacon it had a major influence on the Lucketts choice of supplier for its wet goods. We didnt feel that the big boys had been particularly helpful to us in the past said Steve and with the focus on localism these days a company like Cascade Drinks - with its wide range of goods including beers from Moles Brewery - appealed to us. Id known Keith Reynolds the companys Operations Director for a number of years so when it came to looking for a trusted supplier we had no hesitation in choosing Cascade. We evaluated the options with Keith and they ticked all the boxes. The prices were extremely competitive compared to local cashncarries and with deliveries up to three times per week it beat the national suppliers hands down. We can order as late as 1.00 in the morning and have a delivery next day. Now thats service In addition to wines spirits the pub is also able to offer Black Rat ciders and beers from the Moles Brewery cask craft range which usually includes Moles Best and Moles Tap very popular with the locals. We usually serve up to four beers on handpump said Steve with local microbrewery beers alongside those of Moles. All in all its a great mix For more information on the Beacon Inn Hotel in Haresfield go to or email Beaconlightstheway Nominally the Full Moon is a pub in the centre of Bristol but anyone who has visited the place will know it as being much more than that. Situated just beyond the archway off the St James Barton Roundabout on the citys inner ring road the pub - with its two bars and a restaurant - occupies one side of a partially-covered courtyard which also incorporates the Attic live music venue an al fresco cocktail bar a Shisha bar and at the far end a very busy backpackers hostel. Its a destination venue in more ways than one In charge of the whole complex is Seb Rickard a general manager equally at home putting in a shift behind the bar. He explains to me that the courtyard has evolved over the last eight years and that each facet of the venues business has become bigger and bigger during that time - theres even a regular weekend market Market On The Moon for local independent traders. With so much going on its important for Seb that his suppliers can deliver the goods on time and at the right price and for many years the Full Moon has put its faith in Cascade Drinks. Black Rat cider spirits and many of the beers come from the Melksham- based company with Moles beers going down particu- larly well. Our customers especially like Elmos Fire says Seb and the new craft beer range has also been popular. Its a pleasure to deal with Moles he adds. The companys representative calls in every week and nothing is too much trouble. It has certainly helped us to build the business up to the level it is now. More information on the Full Moon the backpackers hostel and the Attic bar is available at Helpingthe Moontorise underground 7 Free trade 7_Layout 1 05062015 1015 Page 1 In a drinks industry where the tied system still plays a major part in day-to-day trading there is considerable merit in being a totally free house that can buy wet and dry goods on the open market. With that freedom the next important thing is to back up the competitive price with the best service - and if its someone local all the better That was the position in which the Chippenham Sports Club found itself when seeking out a new drinks supplier a couple of years ago. We were looking for a level of flexibility says manager Fiona Wheadon a South African who joined the Chippenham hockey club and ended up taking on the job as General Manager running all the sports club facilities. I then decided to look for a new supplier one that could offer keener prices but importantly better support than we had been receiving previously she continues. So we put it out to tender and Cascade Drinks was a clear winner. As the base for a multitude of leisure activities including cricket tennis lawn bowls hockey netball athletics and pigeon racing - theres even an air-dome for activities protected from the elements - the Chippenham Sports club often requires a rapid response prior to and after major events such as beer festivals biker weekends and half marathons. With Cascade Drinks being situated just down the road weve found them more than willing and able to respond with quick deliveries and promotion support Fiona adds. The spacious clubhouse housing a large function room and members lounge was built 11 years ago offering a wonderful view across the Cricket ground and tennis courts. The Clubhouse incorporates 2 skittle alleys usede by more than thirty teams who compete in an in-house league As its a members run club the Chippenham Sports Club is always looking for new members. Guests are required to be signed in but given the facilities the annual fee has to be a bargain especially as members get to enjoy a range of wines spirits ciders lagers and beers - including hand pulled Moles Best. Moving to Cascade has been the right decision for us concludes Fiona. Local is definitely the way forward.

Spencer Sports and Social Club in Melksham was the subject of a feature around five years ago but the club has undergone something of a renaissance since then so we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to return and see how Cascade Drinks and Moles Brewery have helped in that process. I arrange to meet club secretary Percy Edwards one sparkling Saturday morning in early 2015 and I arrive as a hectic car washing session is underway. Ah yes say Percy we like to support local businesses But thats not the main reason for asking Cascade to be the clubs main supplier of wet goods a relationship that now spans a good number of years. They really look after us he continues and nothing is too much trouble. Theyre also happy to get involved in some of the many events we sponsor. Spencer is a private club owned entirely by its members but there was a realisation several years back that the facilities werent being utilised to their full potential. This led to a great deal of internal restructuring with a new committee of Percy chairman Tony Webb and Treasurer Iain Cameron being joined by new bar supervisor Mark Smith setting the wheels in motion. Now there are very few days in the year when the function room isnt hosting some kind of party reception competition or even a wake Major darts events are held here while the club also runs its own league. In addition there are two skittle alleys which are very much in demand throughout the year. The adjacent lounge bar features two pool tables and there is big screen sports TV throughout. Local societies also make a beeline for Spencer and Percy lists several organisations which avail themselves of the facilities with subjects as diverse as adult care flower arranging slimming rocknroll and the blood transfusion service. Not forgetting the car wash outside. Oh and theres also a full-size lawn bowls green at the rear Cascade now supplies all soft drinks and beers including Moles Best and seasonal ales which go down well with the members who appreciate a quality local ale. Its really handy having our drinks supplier literally just down the road adds Percy. Quick deliveries can be organised if necessary and nothing is ever an issue.

Previously used for pool a new seating arrangement has created a cosy lounge bar which is proving popular with couples and social groups. But pool fans neednt worry - the pub still has 3 tables in other rooms and the upstairs function room is in the process of being developed into an American style sports bar featuring an authentic American pool table and premium imported bottle beers. More details from Great pub food is back on the menu at the Cat and Wheel following a major kitchen re-fit. Our popular two-room pub on Bristols Cheltenham Road is winning new fans for its home-made burgers bangers and mash smoked pork and fish chips with service from midday 11.00am Sat and Sun until 10.00pm. Kyles Bad Ass BBQ fresh from the hatch on Saturday and Sunday from 12.00 noon is proving very popular The annual August Bank Holiday Cider Festival features guest scrumpies in a dedicated marquee with live music and a barbie too. And its not just the locals that enjoy the ambience of the Cat. None other than England 1966 World Cup legend Gordon Banks was a recent visitor. Whilst staying in Bristol he was recommended to the pub and called in on karaoke night readily signing autographs for fans and generally having a good time. Any singing skills Sadly not on the record Check out the Cats Facebook page for more info. CatWheel Free trade underground 11 The buzz word in beer circles these days is the micro pub the latest High Street phenomenom dedicated to taking beer drinking back to the basics of good ale and convivial company in a relaxing environment. But compelling as many of these ventures are it can be difficult to recreate the lived-in feel of a traditional local especially one that first cut its teeth in Victorian times as a coaching inn for travellers on their way into Bristol. Thats the Sugar Loaf on St Marks Road in Easton a characterful old hostelry that has nevertheless eschewed the traditional horse brass interior to remain relevant to the locals in this part of town. I call them Eastonenders says landlord James McCracken pictured right whose family have run the pub for thirty years or more. Some of them have been coming in here as long as we have You can see the attraction. The atmospheric interior retains the distinct areas which would have been a feature of the original coaching establishment yet theres enough space for irreverence such as the collection of classic music posters adorning the walls and - next to the 10p juke box featuring classic rock vinyl yes vinyl - theres a glass case on the wall containing not stuffed birds as you might expect but Animal and Beaker puppets from the Muppets - inspired The Sugar Loaf also possesses drinking areas at the front and at the rear where it borders the railway line for which the Stapleton Road station is just round the corner. On the drinks front James has seen an interesting trend. Theres been a decided shift away from cider towards beer in recent years. And although some ciders - like Black Rat - are still popular the Sugar Loaf is definitely now a big ale pub. It helps that there are no tie restrictions and alongside the two regular cask beers the pub majors on south west micros wherever possible with Moles beers well to the fore amongst the numerous guests on tap. Weve been trading with Moles and Cascade for the past twenty years or so recalls James. Black Rat cider has always been a good seller and I particularly like the new Moles craft beer range. Sweet music to our ears For more information visit Thelocalattraction The Sugar Loaf in Easton Right James McCracken 11_Layout 1 05062015 1031 Page 1 12_Layout 1 05062015 1049 Page 1 The vale of the White Horse at the north western edge of Salisbury Plain is good walking country - and great sledging country in the winter too - so where better to spend an enjoyable Sunday outing than the nearby village of Bratton just a couple of miles from the iconic hill carving. The Duke at Bratton is a Cascade pub which has a long-established name for the quality and variety of its food in particular the Sunday roasts which are served from midday until 4.00pm. Theres also a cracking beer garden guarded by a pair of ancient whale bones So after a hard morning on the pathways - or the slopes - its a great place to wind down with a pint of Moles best and excellent Sunday Fayre. Whats more if youve got family to entertain the pool table is free on Sunday all day. It might only happen every other year but like the Ryder Cup theres something special about Locals Day at the Harp Crown in Gastard. Literally at the centre of this Wiltshire village it is enjoying a new lease of life as a Cascade pub under the guidance of landlady Alison Alli Jones and has undergone extensive refurbishment of the interior during the past couple of years. Now boasting a number of impressively-decorated dining areas traditional pub bar and a newly created Snug - which can be pre-booked by groups to 10 for private dining - the Harp Crown is the epitome of the 21st Century community inn. So whats the reasoning behind declaring one particular day as Locals Day Explains Alli We choose a nice Summers evening put on a hog roast invite locals to come along - and even bring a pet if they wish - cats dogs horses During the evening we take a group picture and you can see them hanging up in the pub. A great snapshot in time of life in the Harp Crown. The 2013 line-up is pictured. Watch out for details of the 2015 gathering on the pubs website - If its sport youre looking for check out the New Inn on Semington Road Melksham as this Cascade local can offer both Sky Sports BT Sports on big screen TV. Factor in the new pool table completively- priced Friday night food specials free wifi beer garden and large car park - plus Moles beers - its clear that the New Inn has most of the angles covered As Eric and Margaret Brewster look forward to completing their second decade at the helm of the Old Crown in Twerton Bath its worth looking back at their splendid charity fundraising efforts during that time having helped to raise a five-figure sum for local good causes. Recent highlights include 4000 in six years from the Lifeboat coin box alone as featured in the last issue of Underground plus annual Christmas hamper raffles with prizes donated by regulars. Much of the money raised over the years has gone to the RNLI plus good causes like Dorothy House and Help for Harmony set up to support a local girl who lost all of her limbs to meningitis. A big well done to Eric and Margaret. As the housing development at Bowerhill has grown in size over the past few years so the Pilot - the Moles pub right at its heart - has increasingly become the hub of the community. With its two spacious bars and upstairs function suite able to accommodate any eventuality the Pilot has become known for its daily events including bingo 100 top prize on Monday the Tuesday Curry Night the newly revamped Big Quiz on Thursday and the Saturday night live music sessions. Not to mention the extremely popular Sunday lunches. The food menu offers daily specials but a particular favourite is the foot-long hot dog Theres TV sport throughout including the function room which can also be configured for business meetings if required. Despite sitting right in the middle of Harry Potter country - nearby Lacock Abbey was used as a prime location in the celebrated film series - you would be forgiven for thinking that the Rising Sun is something of a hidden treasure. From the A350 Chippenham to Melksham Road turn off for Lacock go past the Abbey over the quaint river bridge and keep driving on up the hill until you looking for a much lower gear - and there it is on the right with the car park just beyond. Youre so high up now that from the pubs beer garden theres a panorama stretching out in front of you towards the South Coast. Its one of the many attractions of this rural inn which was acquired by Cascade Drinks managing director Roger Catte and his wife Laura many moons ago and pre-dates the Moles brewery by some years. Although the essential charm remains - its a drinkers pub with cosy rooms and a roaring log fire in winter - the Rising Sun has benefitted in recent years from a conservatory extension which offers top quality dining with a view. The extensive menu runs from sandwiches with sides through traditional pub classics and gourmet burgers right up to Chefs Choice and seasonal Specials. Chef is Roger Cox who along with Kay Thomas are mine hosts having recently celebrated their first year at the pub. Outside in the beer garden theres ample seating for families and other social groups to soak up the Wiltshire sunshine and enjoy the scenery which aside from the view over the valley includes surrounding mature woodland with its resident flora fauna and birdlife. The Rising Sun hosts a variety of events and theme nights throughout the year especially in the dark winter months and its a good idea to monitor the pubs Facebook page. As you might expect Moles beers and Black Rat cider are key ingredients in the cuisine as they are very much so on the bar. So if youre on a visit to the Abbey riding or walking in the area the Rising Sun might just be your best discovery.
