Calling all beer fans, Gloucester Brewery needs you! We’re on the lookout for beer tasters to test out our new range of cans for free.

You can apply to become one of 20 official beer testers who will be sent out packs of our new 500ml canned versions of Gloucester Brewery favourites Gloucester Gold, Dockside Dark, Cascade, Priory Pale and our English Craft Lager.

We are moving all of our bottled beers into cans from March 15th in a bid to not only enhance the flavour but also help reduce our carbon footprint.

MD Jared said: “Canned beer is better than bottled beer as it stays fresher longer as cans block out all light and oxygen from getting in. This is particularly important for our beers which are unfiltered, unpasteurised and live, meaning they pour naturally hazy and contain live yeast.

“It is also easier to transport and safer than glass and it is more environmentally-friendly being lighter in weight and more recyclable than glass.”

According to a University of Southampton study into drinks packaging released in 2020, 100% aluminium cans and regular aluminium cans were both found to have less of an environmental impact than glass bottles.

“We look forward to hearing what our beer tasters think of the new canned versions of our bottled beers,”

To apply to become a beer taster, please email by March 31st. You need to be over 18 and live in the GL1-4, GL50-52 and GL20 postcodes. We will shortlist 20 applicants who will be sent out a pack of beers and a feedback form. Proof of date of birth will be required.
