Cellar Cooler Savings

A J & E Hall ambient beer cooler is helping a traditional Cotswold village pub to cut its cellar cooling costs. The Bell Inn is a 16th Century Grade II listed hostelry serving real ale and locally sourced food.

Owner Mark Payne said: "energy costs are astronomical in any business. Installing an ambient beer cooler ticked all the boxes. It is such a simple idea but makes common sense."

The unit – installed in the compact above-ground cellar – helps to ensure that a selection of up to four cask ales, including the locally-brewed Stroud Organic Ale and Uley Bitter, are kept in prime condition.
