Why a Micropub?


“The idea of opening a Micro-pub has been burning slowly in my mind for about 4-5 years and now my dream has become a reality.

I found what I believed to be the ideal location in Shipston on Stour, a small unspoiled town in South Warwickshire with a very active community. I contacted the owner of the shop who was so impressed with my vision and enthusiasm asked if he could be my partner with a view to one day starting a chain of Thirst Editions”.

There are a rising number of people who enjoy the concept of Micropubs. No music, not gaming machines, and opportunity to talk rather then sit looking at our Smartphones. Perhaps the motto should be ‘Talking, Not Texting’.
