One of my local pubs has a Cask Marque plaque outside it. "Nothing unusual in that"
I suppose you'll be thinking. But wait a minute. This one has "EXPIRED" on the bottom of it. What can this mean? It was accredited up to a point in time presumably. Does it therefore mean that it isn't now? Then why hasn't the sign been removed? Is it still Cask Marque quality or not? Have they still got the quality but not paid the fees. Has the quality declined? When did it expire? How did "Expired" get there? The cask marque site doesn't say and it seems to me to be a funny kind of sign to have outside your pub.

Puzzling isn't it? Anyone know?

I reckon the beer quality is pretty good though. Better than my photo.
