Twewers – twittering brewers

Saturday, May 2, 2009 18:24 | Filed in Beer, twitter

As some of you may already be aware, I am quite a fan of the stuff known as real ale. You know, beer with flavour in it. I am also quite a fan of twitter, for rapid little conversations on t’internet.

After talking about the Newcastle Beer Festival on this site and on twitter, I discovered that I had picked up a new twitter follower called @beermerchants. As they are importers of beer, and they are on twitter, I asked them the question: which breweries are on twitter?

They provided me with a list, but it has a very American slant, when I was specifically looking for UK based real ale brewers.

So I have decided that I will start my own list: if you know of any other twittering brewers of real ale based in the UK, let me know via the comments and I’ll add you to this list. Meanwhile, if any of the brewers would like to send me beer to ahem “review”, or invite me on brewery tours, do feel free to contact me!

Here they are:

    It’s a shame Black Isle don’t update more often.

    Headed up that way in June, I’ll have to get stocked up…

    Got another one for you, Brothers Cider, Somerset – OK, not real ale but cider – but you can sign up to get tokens for Brothers festival Strength Pear Cider at Glastonbury 09 (

    What about a list of lager brewers? that stuff that you like tastes like gnat’s piss!

    I’d like to know where they brew Beck’s beer, Heineken, Lowenbrau, Tuborg and Leffe.

    You can keep your Old Peculiar thanks. For one thing it tastes old, and for another, it tastes peculiar!

    Ah well, I’m afraid I’m not a lagerboy: you’ll have to look elsewhere for that, although some might be on the beernews list

    And — to be pedantic — it’s peculier.
