Of all the pig-themed microbreweries in all the counties of England, you had to walk into mine… The boys at Slaughterhouse Brewery are obsessed with the porcine, I’d say. The label for Slaughterhouse Stout, the chocolate stout featured in this sticker, shows a man drinking from a pig-snout mug. It’s pretty cute really. Nearly every other beer the brewery has produced includes a pig on the label somewhere. Maybe it’s because the brewery, located in Warwick, is set up in a former slaughterhouse. An abattoir! There’s no sign of meat in the brewing though — just good old-fashioned barley, malt, hops and whatnot. Look for Slaughterhouse ales in the pubs in and around Warwick — they’ve got their own certification scheme for “Rare Breed” pubs, guaranteed to serve Slaughterhouse brews in prime conditions. From the Warwickshire touristry site:
Local Pubs that sell beer and ales from The Slaughterhouse Brewery include:
The Simple Simon (Warwick), The Tilted Wig (Warwick), The Cape of Good Hope (Warwick), The Waterman (Hatton), The Case is Altered (Hatton) and The Woodland Tavern (Leamington Spa).
So, if you’re in Warwickshire, you can make a pig of yourself with Slaughterhouse!
