The Micropub Association is a membership based organisation which is committed to promoting and celebrating all that is great with the concept of the micropub movement. Founded by Stu Hirst and Martyn Hillier in 2012, the sole aim of the MPA is to promote the Micropub revolution.
'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'
The Micropub Association can only be as good as the membership base so your ideas, thoughts, opinions and general meanderings are very much appreciated.
You can browse the website for free but as a member you’ll be able to view and contribute to the Forum. The Forum contains lots of information on how to set up and run your own Micropub. You’ll be able to find out all sorts of valuable information concerning issues such as profit margins, insurance, planning and premises renovation.
Our hope is that the Micropub Association will be a place where like-minded real ale lovers can share their micropub experiences. The Micropub Association is also a platform for the new and emerging micropubs to tell the beer drinking community about themselves.
The Micropub Association doesn't intend to mimic the excellent work that CAMRA has done over the years to promote the licensing trade and the views of all real ale drinkers, rather the Micropub Association recognises that there is something pretty unique in the micropub phenomenon which merits the formation of a separate complementary group.
