The definition of a micropub is difficult. It is a set of ethics rather than a set of rules
A 'Micropub' according to the Micropub Association is defined as follows: 'A Micropub is a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks'
There may be differences between the pubs; they may or may not have a bar, they might serve beer straight from the cask or through hand pumps. But they are united in one philosophy. A simple pub with the focus on cask beer and conversation for entertainment. The basic premise is KIS, KIS – Keep It Small, Keep It Simple
Our vision is to become a welcoming setting for local people to meet and build a sense of togetherness and belonging. The micropub may be part of the ‘Greasley Gathering’, and associated with the twice annual beer festivals at Beauvale Priory or a place to showcase local artists or community groups. A hub of the community.
Micro pubs serve no keg beers/lagers or spirits, which deters certain clientele that may be prone to anti-social behavior. Our target market are those who enjoy the social setting of the old style pubs of the past but do not enjoy the busy atmosphere and rowdiness of pubs already in the area.
