EDITORS COMMENTS BY Bernie cawte Has summer been and gone already, or are we still waiting for summer to really start? Whatever the weather there are plenty of good ales and ciders to be tasted in the pubs around are region. Look out for the beer festivals that some of the pubs will be holding during the Bank Holiday, our web site, facebook and twitter pages are ideal for finding out the latest information. It’s also the time of year that I and many of my friends look forward to, the build up to the football season. I have continued with the Amber Trail feature which has proved so popular over the last 3 years. As last year we are please to bring you this feature in conjunction with our friends at Hull City supporters club. If you follow the Tigers why not join the Supporters Club and keep up with what’s going on at the KC. I must say I did have a problem bringing you information about two of the teams City play in their early games, Manchester City and Southampton, but in the interests of all I fought my better instincts and got the job done. I hope you find the pubs in the feature worth a visit. On a more serious note please take time out to check the CAMRA web site and learn about our current campaigns. These include, a campaign for pub-co reform is in full swing and needs your support. The Government consultation has closed with a response expected later this year but we need to keep the momentum going by reaching MP’s and spreading the word among pub goers. The pub-co reform campaign currently has 165 MP supporters, which is fantastic but there is

always room for more. Please go to to see if your MP has joined the campaign. If not please consider writing to ask him or her to join. Finally to help increase the effectiveness of the campaign the Campaigns Team need evidence of previously tied pubs which were languishing and are now successfully operating free-of-tie or as a free-house. One extreme example of this is the Kelham Island Tavern in Sheffield which was owned by a pub-co in the 90’s, became derelict and then went on to win CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year twice once taken over by an independent publican, and remains the only pub to ever win twice. Finally I would to welcome on board John Rushforth, who has kindly agreed to look after the advertising side of Pub Mirror beginning with the November edition. John can be contacted at

NEIL SAT-NAV THIS TRIP OUT BY MARK BAINTON Our second survey trip for the GBG 2015 took place on June 9th in and around the Wolds. We left Hull at 12.30 and headed to our first pub The Beech Tree in Kirkella, a Good Beer Guide pub for several years, with the sun shining their beer garden was full of customers in their shorts and tee shirts. Given the option this also would included some of our party par-taking in this activity; a sight in some cases not to be described A very good and differing choice of styles of beer was on offer. These were Harvestoun Old Engine Oil, a porter, Buttcombe Great Grey Owl, an American pale ale, Marston's Pedigree New World Ale, Mad Goose Purity, Tim Taylors Best, Tetley’s Cask, 3 Swords from Kirkstall Brewery and Thatchers Heritage cider. Other cider products were on offer, these seemed to require large amounts of frozen water-in the form of ice cubes to be thrown into the glass and then given to the customer who has to try and melt them by pouring the contents of the bottle on to the cubes. We leave before the hour and are soon arriving at The Gnu Inn at North Newbald. Our hosts are pleased to see us as they new to the area but not the licensing trade. As the party is fairly large we split in to two groups some go to the Tiger across the road while the remainder stay and sample Black Sheep Best Bitter, Wells Bombardier these are the regular ales and the guest beer is from the Unicorn brewery in Cheshire Robinson's Dizzy Blonde 3.8%, straw coloured with a hop aroma, perfect for the warm weather.

Top Bitter, Copper Dragon’s Golden Pippin Black Sheep Bitter and Moorlands medium sweet cider which is made locally. Back on the coach heading towards Market Weighton, it seems very strange not to hear Neil's voice, our resident 'Sat-Nav' on these trips, giving 'his' directions to the driver on how get us to the next destination. Some say he's gifted some say he's.....well join us on the next trip and you can then decide. We are greeted at the Carpenters Arms by Andy and his dad our new liaison officer for the town. Here we are offered Greene King IPA, Everards Tiger, Moorland Old Golden Hen, Big River-Spurn, Ringwood Best Bitter, Silver Mist from a Scottish brewery and Copper Dragon’s Golden Pippin (ideal to make a direct comparison with the Star at Sancton). Next stop the Goodmanham Arms in the Good Beer Guide 2012 and 2013 just near the Wolds Way (a route for walkers). It’s busy, was it due to the weather or is it because it has won our village Pub of the Year award the last two years? The brewery is in full production and they had three to try; Peg Fyfe, Mischief Maker and Ragged Robin. Along side these was Theakston’s Old Peculier (from the wood) Hook Norton’s Lion, Thorne Brewery The Village Bike, Rudgates Viking, Hambleton Stallion and Rhattas from Black Dog. Time catches up with us and as there are two more to look at, both in Walkington we said our goodbyes to Abbie and Vito and on to the Barrel Inn and the Ferguson Fawsitt Arms. The Barrel Inn, is one of only two pubs owned by Thwaites locally. We sampled York Brewery’s Guzzler,Thwaites Wainwright , Waggledance and a Kingston press cider. The Ferguson Fawsitt Arms is also a family friendly restaurant. Here we we had Courage Directors, Greene King Gold IPA, Black Sheep Bitter ,Old Speckled Hen, and Abbot Ale.

We bid farewell to our hosts and are soon in the Star Inn at Sancton, which was first licensed as a pub in the 18th century and enjoys a high reputation for its food. Here we sample Wold Mail Group -

I would like to thank the following for offering discount for CAMRA members on this trip: The Beech Tree, The Gnu, The Star Inn, The Carpenters Arms and The Dog and Duck. @hullCAMRA

Holderness PUB NEWS by Pete Mason The Blue Bell Inn, Keyingham, has been sold and is undergoing a refurbishment. I believe it has been purchased by Ottringham farmer Richard Clappison and his business partner and it appears the pub will be reopening later in the year. The Rose and Crown, North Bar Without, Beverley, has finally been reopened by Stuart Fenn. The interior has been opened out, with the removal of several interior walls. The pub now seems to cater more for diners than for drinkers, with the tables being set for meals. It might not appeal to a visitor popping in for a drink, but it does at least keep the pub open. The beer is reportedly of a good quality, with Wold Top Bitter on offer recently. Just off Saturday Market, Chequers Micro Pub has opened. This is a very small bar, catering solely for real ale drinkers, real cider enthusiasts and wine drinkers who like a relaxed, quiet atmosphere with a few pub games. Ian Allot serves cask ale and real cider from 5 handpumps.

Thorngumbald, Louise Cooke (former licensee of the Humber Tavern, Paull) has left, and the tenants, pub company Paint the Town, (they own the Camerton; Stag, Lelly; Gardeners Country Inn, Coniston, and together with Fuel and Propaganda, in Hull) are looking for a new manager. The Britsh Legion Club, Magdalen Gate, Hedon, serves a hand pumped real ale which is changed every month. Guests must be signed in by a member. The clubhouse at Patrington Haven Leisure Park serves two hand pulled Great Newsome ales which change regularly. Visitors will be asked to become club members, but I understand that membership is free. If you have any news about the pubs in the Holderness area please email me at Information on East Yorkshire pubs please contact Mark Bainton :

Elsewhere in Beverley, the Royal Oak, Cartwright Lane, Beveley, is serving John Smiths Cask and Thwaites Wainwright, while a new bar, the Shed, New Walkergate, Beverley, has been serving a Wold Top beer and Brass Castle Tailgunner. The Sun, is now selling eight real ales. The Thai Restaurant, at the Cross Keys, has now moved to the Market Cross Hotel. Is it possible that Wetherspoons will be making an appearance in Beverley? The owners of the Lounge, Princes Avenue, Hull, have opened the Nu Bar, on Kingston Road, Willerby. There are 3 handpumps, with at least Black Sheep Bitter on sale. It is possible that they will be opening a similar bar near the Beech Tree, Kirkella. Brian Thompson, tenant of the Victoria Hotel, Hornsea, is leaving at the end of September and Marstons are looking for a new tenant. Brian is continuing as the landlord of the Black Bull, Atwick.

HULL PUB NEWS by Jill Walker

As I write this, we are enjoying summer at last! What more of an excuse do you need to get out and about and visit our lovely pubs. It's fairly quiet on the Pub news front so forgive the short report here. As ever, if you hear of anything of interest please contact me. To follow on from the report in the last Pub Mirror, The Rising Sun has beaten off the Southern area contenders to scoope the National Award for Marston's Community Pub with Food 2013. Well done to them.

George are looking forward to welcoming old and new customers with range of XX real ales. There has been a change of ownership at Pave on Princes Avenue. We have heard that new owner Lee Armstrong plans some changes including more cask products and less keg. Good news from our point of view! Fiveways on Boothferry Road has unfortunately had to withdraw cask ale from it's bar due to lack of sales.

Sailmakers, High Street has a new licensee, Dennis Wenn. As a tied Punch tenant he will offer cask beers from the Punch list, members are encouraged to use their patronage to enable him to build on the reputation built by the previous licensee.

Silver Cod on Anlaby Road and Hastings on Spring Bank West which had closed have now re-opened.

The George, Land of Green Ginger had been closed following the departure of the previous licensee, however it now re-open which is good news. New licensees Kevin Conman and Fiona

A new family pub from Marstons is opening early August on the North side of the slip road for St Andrews Quay, Hull. The pub is called ‘Red Sails’ and we will let you know more soon.

Arctic Ranger on Orchard Park has had it's licence revoked following persistent problems.

HOLDERNESS ODYSSEY, PART 2 BY PETE MASON The glories of the English weather! We started the Saturday evening on Ferensway in Hull, bathed in hot sunshine out of a cloudless sky – and finished in Hedon with a damp sea mist that had been getting worse from 8.30. The first stop was in Sproatley with its two pubs almost side by side. The Duke of York is a free house run by Belinda Beaumont. As well as Sharps's Doom Bar, she sells a changing guest beer, which in this occasion, was Moorland's Original. Just across the way, in Church Lane, stands the Sun Inn, run by Karl Linley and Dave Ramage. The guest beer was Adnam's Fat Sprat – unfortunately, this had gone on sale on Friday evening and proved so popular with the locals that it sold out earlier in the day. We had to “make do” with a very palatable golden XPA from Caledonian. The next leg was a short journey to Great Hatfield and the Wrygarth Inn (below). Run by Ray and Sandra Thompson, this pub/restaurant/village store only serves one cask ale, but always from a Yorkshire independent. When we visited, we found Wold Top Hello Velo, which although clear, was very lively and seemed a bit green, which was unusual for this pub.

Blue Bell Inn, a fine example of a village pub, surviving solely on the sale of alcohol. Run by Dave and Shirley Diamond for the last 26 years, this is a great place to while away a summer evening or weekend lunchtime drinking cask ale and playing bowls on the pub's very own bowling green. The Great Newsome Line & Length had gone off, but the Sleck Dust and Pricky Back Otchen was still available. In a thickening mist we headed for Hedon and our penultimate stop – the Shakespeare Inn. This much improved town pub has been run by Phil and Avril Lowe for 4 years. This hardworking survey crew was able to sample Thwaite's Wainwright Golden Ale and Great Newsome Sleck Dust. We arrived slightly late at our final stop. The Haven Arms is run by husband and wife team Mark Holdsworth and Alison Smythe. You can treat yourself to a pint with your plate filling English breakfast or a cask ale at your wedding ceremony. When we called the guest beers on offer were Brown Cow Bitter, Rooster Stars & Stripes and Kite Bluestone Bitter.

Weekly changing guest ales from Yorkshire and Regional breweries as well as real ales from around the UK Heading towards the coast in a thickening sea mist, we reached the small village of Withernwick and the Falcon Inn. This popular village pub pulls in customers from around Holderness to sample both the food and the ale and is run by John Sherman. The guest beer is either from Great Newsome or Wold Top, and we were able to sample Wold Top's Mallard. Heading back towards Hedon, we called in at the Mail Group -

In July 2004 Janette and Richard Gant opened The Wellington Inn on Russell Street as a “Free House” and without the constraints of a lease or tie have had a free rein to stock a wide range of real ales for discerning drinkers as the amazing array of pump clips that adorn the pub walls can testify.

combination of second hand and new equipment. Even so, the upgrading and customising of these to suit his purpose doubled the outlay.

After seven years of selling great real ales and ciders and in the process winning many CAMRA awards, Richard finally achieved a long held ambition by opening his own on-site brewery in July 2011 and now serves up to three of his own quality beers alongside the guest ales. With the ever increasing rise in beer prices, transport costs and increasing competition from supermarkets he saw that the time was right to not only to fulfil a dream but to also help safeguard the future. In 2010 Richard identified that he could use the store room that had been at one time a kitchen as his brewhouse and gathered together a

Additionally, a large number of casks were purchased – by no means cheap items. At the same time, as with other skilled jobs, he

THE WELLINGTON INN BREWERY BY SPURN PINT thoroughly researched the art of brewing, attended a brewing course and sought advice from other brewers with whom he was already trading. One thing he soon discovered was how time consuming and rigidly scheduled brewing is. After about a year the Wellington Inn Brewery went live and Richard spent a further period of time experimenting with different styles and strengths.

Eight nine gallon casks are produced per brew and brewing takes place once or twice per week. Richard normally uses malts from Fawcetts at Castleford and generally uses British hops although he is not averse to experimenting with overseas varieties, whilst dried yeast and treated water are used to maintain consistency.


Janette’s amazing daily changing chalkboard drawings For the beer names, Richard and Janette carry out extensive research into the life and times of Arthur Wellesley, the First Duke of Wellington. It would seem that there is a plentiful supply of material whenever a new name is required and once decided upon, Janette sets to work on producing the latest stylised pump clip with aplomb, not forgetting the unique glass motif indicating colour and strength.

With Richard’s trade connections, Wellington beers have appeared in pubs and at CAMRA and non-CAMRA festivals throughout Yorkshire and beyond, the most recent sighting being Super Duke at the recent famous Star beer festival in Huddersfield.

The water is ideal for dark beers including Richard’s favourite beer to date – Stanley Mild which is produced using Goldings hops and a variety of malts including some special dark ones. The result is a slightly caramel, chocolate toffee flavour lovely beer that was the best seller in the Mild Month of May and the subject of

I first heard of Stingo when I worked in London in the early 1960s for the trade union NALGO for close to its headquarters on Marylebone Road was a Watney’s pub called the Yorkshire Stingo. It was ancient with lots of interesting history but as to its name no one has yet come up with a derivation. It (the pub) is mentioned often in the history of public transport and was the starting point of the first horse drawn buses in the world which ran between there and the Bank of England. In its heyday it ‘invited the wayfarer to its tea-garden and bowling-green; it was much crowded on Sundays, when an admission fee of sixpence was demanded at the doors. For that a ticket was given, to be exchanged with the waiters for its value in refreshments; a plan very constantly adopted in these gardens, to prevent the intrusion of the lowest classes, or of such as might only stroll about them without spending anything’. All I can say about my experience of it is that it served good lunches for about 3/6d and a pint of orange squash cost more than a pint of Watney’s Red Barrel. It did not sell Stingo in my day. I have traced three similarly named pubs in the UK (in Brighton, Hull and Sheffield - all closed) and a hotel still open in the Australian state of Victoria. Several dictionaries define stingo as either ‘a strong beer’, ‘a Yorkshire beer’ or even ‘a strong Yorkshire beer’. Occasionally the word ale is substituted for beer. The first specific use of the term I could trace was in The Praise of Yorkshire Ale by George Meriton published in York in 1685. This is a long, bawdy poem in which a group of travellers place their order: Come wench, said they, with strong ale we’ll begin, Sirs, said the girl, we’ve ale that’s strong and old,‘ Both from Northallerton and Easingwold. From Sutton, Thirsk, likewise from Rascal Town, We’ve ale also that’s called Knockerdown. Well bring us a tankard of each in you maid We’ll taste them everyone the courtiers said The ale came in each man a tankard had They tasted all and swore that they were full glad, Such Stingo, nappy, pure ale they found Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

So having tried them all the following morning: ……. when they did awake, They cursed and swore that all their heads did ache. O Yorkshire, Yorkshire: thy ale is so strong, That it will kill us all, if we stay long: So they agreed a journey for to make, Into the south, some respite there to take. The names given to various Yorkshire ales in the 18th and 19th centuries were Stingo, Knockerdown, Nappy and Humming Ale – although the latter two were probably more descriptions of beer rather than names. Stingo was usually old strong beer and this appears to have been attached particularly to Yorkshire ale. A claim was made (in 1893) that the Bradford brewery of William Whitaker and Co was the birthplace of Yorkshire Stingo, although there is a reference to it in the Oxford English Dictionary of 1756 one year before the brewery opened and Meriton was writing 70 years before. But the brewery’s price list of 1859 does give an indication of its strength and value: Quality Price per gallon X Ale 10d XX Ale 1s 0d And so on through six other beers in increasing strength and value up to East India Pale Ale 1s 4d Yorkshire Stingo 1s 6d In 1889 Alfred Barnard, author of The noted breweries of Great Britain and Ireland visited the Leeds brewery of Joshua Tetley and he wrote: …we were taken to the sampling room, to taste a few specimens of the firm's brew. The manager of the cellars was, fortunately, present, and first handed us a specimen of the ‘running beers’ as supplied to public-houses, which we found to be a good wholesome beverage for the labouring classes; next a specimen of Yorkshire Stingo, which we found very luscious, full of body, and well flavoured without being heady. So far as contemporary beers go the only live ones named Stingo are a 4.5% from Bartram’s in Suffolk and a recently introduced Yorkshire Stingo at 8% ABV from Samuel Smith of Branch Website -



Tadcaster although Acorn produced a seasonal Stingo three or four years ago at 4.2%. There is

no defined strength but I would imagine that the Sam’s product and a 7.0% Stingo from Phoenix of Heywood, although no longer brewed, would be somewhere near to it. The Samuel Smith’s Yorkshire Stingo is bottle conditioned and sells at around £6 upwards but only in specialist off licences. However Stingo finds its place in history. For example it is reported that at the Ewe’s farmhouse, Yorkshire, aged 76, Mr Paul Parnell, farmer, grazier and maltster, who, during his lifetime, drank out of one silver pint cup upwards of £2,000 sterling worth of Yorkshire Stingo, being remarkably attached to Stingo tipple of the home brewed best quality. The calculation is taken at 2d per cupful. And buried in a Leeds graveyard is an unnamed but an obviously rather large man: Hic jacet sure the fattest man, That Yorkshire Stingo made; He was a lover – of his can, A clothier by trade. His waist did measure three yards round, He weighed about three hundred pounds. Mail Group -




I am now close to 40 years of age yet it took me 38 years of my life to make the discovery that I am a fan of real ale. How did this come about? Let me explain. Growing up, (as with many kids) you were not seen as cool if you were not a lager drinker and I always associated drinking bitter/ale with the elderly and for these reasons I never ventured any further than being a lager boy. This kept up until around the time that I met my wife 10 years ago and started to become a little more adventurous in what I drank….But still no real ale!

up for the aforementioned night that I saw the vast array of what was available and the differing styles. Upon tasting several different bottles prior to; and during our next meet I almost immediately developed a passion for ale as for the first time in a very long while I felt that what I was drinking actually had flavour.

During the latter part of 2012 when I was starting to really appreciate ale I eventually made the plunge and joined CAMRA which seemed to be the next logical step; although it took a bit of convincing myself as to why I should join the campaign. If I am being totally honest it was the incentives to becoming a member such as That slightly changed one day several years ago Wetherspoons discount vouchers, monthly when we went into a Wetherspoons for lunch and newspapers, quarterly magazines plus free entry to the Hull Real Ale and Cider Festival which I I just had the urge to try something new. This had never previously attended which really coincided with them having one of their ale swung the decision. festivals so I decided to try one and thought that it was pretty tasty. However I still said that it As I had developed the ale bug I set myself a couldn’t become a regular thing and stuck to lager. Perhaps this was down to the fact that I felt challenge throughout the month of December 2012 which I named ‘Decembeer’ where for each it was still embarrassing to order ale as I was day of the month I would try a different real ale only in my late twenties at the time. (either bottled or cask). I mentioned this on the Twitter feed of Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA Gradually over time I would pop into my local and those who run the Twitter account thought supermarket and on the odd occasion pick up a bottle of ale as a treat but again this would not be that it was a novel idea and kept in regular conversation with me throughout the challenge. It a regular thing as the most adventurous I ever was then that I began to realise how friendly (and got was turning for a while to being a Guinness incredibly knowledgeable) these people actually drinker after being introduced to the black stuff were. by a friend of mine on a trip to Belfast. Although I was beginning to be involved a little In mid 2011 however things really did begin to more I had still not managed to attend anything change when my wife invited one of her friends organised by the and her husband over to our house and not local CAMRA knowing what he drank I obviously stuck to lager branch until one with a case of Guinness as back up. He turned evening I decided up with a couple of bottles of wine which seemed after work to go a little odd and eventually I asked him if wine was along to an open his usual tipple. He responded that actually he is meeting and meet a bitter or Guinness drinker but being the same a few of those age as I perhaps felt the same in that it was a involved. Although little embarrassing to say what he enjoyed when it was a little nervy meeting someone for the first time. From that to start with I was point on we had a case or two of Guinness soon welcomed during our next couple of meet ups until a few with open arms months later we decided to be a little more and introduced to adventurous and get a few bottles of ale for a many of the change. people from the local branch and It was not until I actually went shopping to stock Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

BY Mark Spight they mentioned how I could become further involved by volunteering at the Hull Real Ale and Cider Festival, going on survey trips around the area and attending social crawls. I was still a bit apprehensive as I felt that I was still learning about ale and had only a minor amount of knowledge compared to many others. Despite this I took the plunge and agreed to staff a few sessions at the festival and from the outset I was instantly blown away by the sheer size and impressiveness of what had been put together by such a dedicated group of people all of whom share the same passion as I for real ale. My first session at the festival arrived and after quickly being shown the ropes by Branch Chair Angela; off I went into the unknown to pull some pints for the thirsty customers who arrived in their abundance. It did not take me long to realise just what a fantastic experience the whole thing was and my agreed three hour shift flew by to the point of me agreeing to work an extra couple of hours on the first night and further sessions across the course of the next few days on top of those which I had already agreed to staff. The whole festival experience is one which will stay with me for a very long time as it was something very special to be involved in and as we were wrapping up I was then invited along to more open meetings and the first branch survey trip of the year which I agreed to attend. The survey trips proved to be another great new experience as I along with a number of other CAMRA members board our coach to head to various locations to test the quality of ales on offer in numerous pubs within the Hull & East Yorkshire area. Again this proves an excellent way of socialising and getting to know others involved. These trips made me realise that it does not matter whether you are eighteen or eighty all who come along mix well as we all share the same interest and that in addition to those who are incredibly knowledgeable within the group there are those who are still learning about real ale like myself. So there we are‌.I have officially been a fan of real ale for less than two years and my passion Mail Group -

for my new hobby has really gripped over the last year. Now; instead of being embarrassed to discuss drinking ale I will happily promote the fact and do my very best to convert others into this way of thinking. This will certainly not be an easy task as most people I know still frown upon the possibility but I will almost certainly not give up. One further thing that I have noticed especially in this past year is just how many pubs there are that support real ale drinking and that there are more and more stores stocking a wider range of bottled ales. This certainly has given me a new lease of life and I now enjoy seeking out new cask and bottled ales and establishments that sell it and it seems that there are many others who have the same way of thinking. This can only be seen as a positive and although it may have taken me 38 years to get here I will now stand up and say that real ale is most certainly the way forward and that I am proud to be involved with the Hull & East Yorkshire branch of CAMRA!!

INN CIDER by David Litten Jargon Busting Dee Wright and Ray Blockley from Nottingham CAMRA explain some of the mysteries of cider jargon.

adversely affect flavour. Real cider is not naturally cloudy! Many ciders sold “cloudy” as a selling point may have clouding agents added after pasteurising or even after filtering.

Cider - An alcoholic drink made from the fermented juice of apples. By HMRC Technical Definition, cider has to have an ABV of below 8.5%. At 8.5% ABV and above, this is classed as “apple wine”. Cider does not contain adjuncts such as fruit juice, herbs or spices. An apple based drink with any alien adjuncts such as other fruits, herbs or spices is known as a Made Wine and is taxable as such; by definition it is not Cider. Lax labelling and Trading Standards controls allow the erroneous use of the term “fruit cider”.

Scrumpy - A term used to describe rough cider, sometimes naturally cloudy.

Real Cider - Cider made with “full juice” (undiluted) fresh-pressed apple juice that is fermented using the naturally occurring yeasts present on and within the apples. It is not pasteurised (heat treated) nor filtered. It does not contain alien adjuncts. Perry - An alcoholic drink made from the fermented juice of pears. The rest of the definition of perry follows that for cider. Dictionaries often have perry listed as “a wine made from pears”. Real Perry - As for Real Cider but made using pears instead of apples. “Pear Cider” and “Apple Cider” are recent marketing or advertising terms; they are frequently used with apple or pear-based drinks which contain low-levels of juice, but bulking agents such as water, sugar, syrups, flavourings, aromas and colourings. They are usually pasteurised and filtered. “Fruit Cider” - poor quality cider-based drinks, usually heavily sweetened, sold through heavy advertising and promotion. “Cull fruit” from dessert and culinary orchards which are unsuitable for sale are often used in these lowgrade “ciders”. Also includes “Herb” and “Spice” “ciders”. Cloudy or Hazy cider - Cider will usually clear naturally given time. However, protein, tannin or pectin hazes can occur naturally and do not Mail Group -

Cider apple - Cider apples are mainly recognisable by their coarse, fibrous flesh which enables the juice to be readily extracted. Cider apples are categorised by their levels of three key components: Tannin, Acidity and Sweetness. Tannins are bitter-tasting compounds that can also be astringent. For example very strong tea has high levels of tannin. The tannins in apples can be classed as Hard or Soft. Acidity The acid found in apples is Malic Acid and the levels can vary widely. Sweetness Cider apples are usually high in sugars. All of the sugars found in apples are fermentable, unlike beers. Bitters are apples low in acidity and high in Tannins. Sharps are apples low in tannin but high in acidity. Cooking apples are usually Sharps (e.g. Bramleys) Sweets are apples low in both tannin and acidity. Dessert apples are usually Sweets. Bittersharps contain high levels of Tannins and Acid. Bittersweets contain high levels of Tannins and low levels of Acid. A combination of Bittersharps and Bittersweets are considered to make the best ciders. Single Variety (SV) ciders are made using a single type of apple. Only a handful of varieties are capable of making a good cider on their own. NB: All apples can be used to make cider. However, the cider produced is not always palatable. @hullCAMRA

Real Ale is a living beer. It continues to ferment and develop its full flavour in the cask. Real Ale is brewed from traditional ingredients, malt, hops, water and yeast matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the extraneous use of carbon dioxide or nitrogen via hand pumps. Real Ale is also called cask beer or cask conditioned.

What are ‘Smooth’ beers?

Smooth beers are brewed in much the same way as real ale but eventually the natural yeast is killed and processed to give longer shelf life. The dead beer is then resurrected by means of chemicals and served chilled by gas pressure through fonts. Smooth beer sales are also known as nitro-keg beer.

B on the Amber Trail Follow The Tigers In conjunction with our friends at Hull City supporters club, we are once again striving to find the away-friendly pubs in the towns and cities where City are playing. We hope you can enjoy the many real ales that will be on offer and raise a glass to Steve Bruce and the lads. Here’s hoping for a enjoyable new season with the Tigers consolidating their return to top flight English football.

Sunday 18th August v Chelsea - 4.00pm The Courtfield Tavern, 187 Earls Court Road, SW5 9AN, which is almost opposite the main entrance to Earl's Court Tube Station, is a particular favourite with away supporters. This CAMRA GBG 2013 pub serves real ale, offers hot food, at 'London prices'. Also in the area is another GBG 2013 pub the White Horse, 1-3 Parsons Green, SW6 4UL, which offers 8 regular cask ales including Adnams Broadside, Hobsons Best Bitter and JHB. Saturday 31st August v Manchester City - 12.45pm It is probably best to drink in the city centre as there is a connecting tram service from Piccadilly. There are several pubs around the Printworks, with plenty of choices of food. A GBG 2013 pub just behind the station at Piccadilly is the Jolly Angler, 47 Ducie Street, M1 2JW, also worth a visit is Port Street Beer House, 39-41 Port Street, M1 2EQ, which holds a large selection of cask and bottled beers. Saturday 21st September v Newcastle United - 3.00pm The Bodega, 122 Westgate Road, NE1 6BX is listed in the CAMRA GBG 2013 and has a friendly atmosphere. Closer to the ground (and just around the corner from China Town which is good for a cheap lunch) is the Newcastle Arms, 57 St Andrews Street, NE1 5SE. This pub is also in the Good Beer Guide, if you are not wearing colour you are might gain entrance but it is a mainly a ‘home’ pub. The Town Wall, Pink Lane, NE1 5HX is also close by and has 4 regular real ales including its exclusive Toon Waal Ale??. Saturday 19th October v Everton - 3.00pm Near Goodison is the Thomas Frost, 177-197 Walton Road, L4 4AJ, another Wetherspoon’s GBG 2013 pub, this pub used to be a well known Liverpool departmental store. The Cat & Fiddle, St Martins House, Stanley Street, L20 3LG, normally has four ales on tap, with two from the Liverpool Organic Brewery in nearby north Liverpool. Near Lime Street Station is the Crown, 43 Lime Street, L1 1JQ, another GBG 2013 pub, a traditional bar which serves a great selection (up to 5 real ales) at prices that are easy to swallow - and that also go down well with a nice bit of pub-food if you fancy it. Saturday 26th October v Tottenham Hotspurs - 3.00pm Consider catching the train from Liverpool Street and stop off at Hackney Downs to visit the Pembury Tavern, 90 Amhurst Road, Hackney, E8 1JH. Good beer and quality food. From there it is only 10 minutes on the train to White Hart Lane. The pub is only a couple of hundred yards from Hackney Downs Station. The pub which is featured in our GBG has no less than 16 real ales on offer! Nearer to the Ground is the Three Compasses, 62 High Street, N8 7NX, a GBG pub since 2006, originally a coaching inn, where you can enjoy up to 6 cask quality ales. Saturday 9th November v Southampton - 3.00pm The ground is a little out of town and most pubs near St Mary’s Stadium are for Southampton fans only. Therefore the Platform Tavern, Town Quay, SO14 2NY, in the heart of the historic dockyard of this city, might be a good place to start with great food and real ales. Another gem is the South Western Arms, 38-40 Adelaide Road, SO17 2HW, adjoining St Denys station, which takes great pride in their selection of 10 hand pump real ales and international bottled beers. The pub is split on two levels with the bar area on the ground floor and the quieter mezzanine housing the pool and football table. If you try any of these pubs or find others worth visiting, I would be pleased to hear from you. Details correct at time of writing - Bernie Cawte Magazine Editor Mail Group -

WHAT THE (LOCAL) PAPERS SAY Some items you might have missed from the local papers in the area:

as a celebration of the achievements of this excellent family run brewery.

It has been dubbed the yellow jersey of cycling beers by brewers. Determined that the East Coast will not miss out on the estimated £100m boost that the Tour de France could bring to the county, Wold Top Brewery has launched Hello Vélo.

Brewers face stiff competition to secure a coveted spot on the bar with a waiting list extending into next year.

The brewery describes Hello Vélo as a sparkling, crisp ale with an earthy spiciness and honeyed marmalade overtones. It is a British beer that is brewed with predominantly Driffield-based Hunmanby Grange grown barley, chalk filtered water from the farm's own borehole and UK grown Goldings and First Gold hops. It is based on the brewery's successful Jubilee Beer and Tom Mellor is hoping it will be a hit with those in the saddle. "It was important to us to celebrate the first Grand Depart from Yorkshire with a bespoke ale and we're really pleased with the outcome," he said. At only 4.2 per cent ABV, Hello Vélo is the perfect finish to a ride through Yorkshire's Wolds, Moors and Dales and is selling very well." Yorkshire will host the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in July next year. Great Newsome Brewery has also launched a cycling-inspired ale. Maillot Jaune was launched to coincide with the Heart Of The Wolds Cycle Sportive last month. Another story of the growth of our popular beers: An East Yorkshire brewery has served up the perfect pint to MP’s at the Houses of Parliament. Great Newsome Brewery's flagship beer Sleck Dust was given a position on the pumps at the Strangers Bar and has gone down a storm with drinkers in London. Working with Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart, the brewery, based in South Frodingham, near Hull, was given the opportunity to sell its beer to MP’s in the House of Commons. Mr Stuart said "It is great to be able to introduce the House of Commons to Sleck Dust Mail Group -

But, Great Newsome's straw-coloured refreshing ale has been a big hit with drinkers and brewery owners Matthew and Donna Hodgson are hoping Sleck Dust, their regular brew, will become a regular feature among the pumps. Mr Hodgson said: "The beer's gone down a treat. We have sold about 350 pints in under a week, so it has been hugely popular. "It all came about following my contact with Graham Stuart when we asked for his support to help scrap the Beer Duty Escalator, which was having serious consequences for not only our business but many of the local pubs in the area. Mr Hodgson is hoping having one of the brewery's beers on offer in the House of Commons will help increase trade across East Yorkshire. "It was extremely exciting for us and we feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to show what fantastic food and drink this part of East Yorkshire has to offer," he said. "We feel there are a lot of fantastic food and drink producers in the region and we don't shout about it enough. "Hopefully, having Sleck Dust available at the House of Commons will put the region on the map a bit more." Read more: @thisishull on Twitter or thisishull on Facebook

A Day to celebrate at Old Mill Brewery by kelly wood

Saturday 20th July marked the occasion of Old Mill Brewery celebrating 30 years of brewing award-winning Yorkshire ales. As a big thank you to all their customers old and new they opened the Brewery for the day, welcoming guests with a full tour of the Brewery and free samples of their real ale including a special brew created just for the day. ‘Cheers to 30 Years’ was the name, the beer itself created with the original recipe for Traditional Bitter which is still used to this day, infused with a slow dry hop process using new world hops.

The day was officially opened by the Mayor of Snaith John Staveley-Churton and there was fun for all the family as for the first time children were invited to join the tour. The Old Mill dray was on display, there were free pens and bottle opener key-rings given away as well as some fantastic raffle prizes and the ever popular ‘guess how many sweets in the jar’ competition. With the sun shining it drew a steady crowd of visitors through the doors which resulted in tour guides Simon Lewis and Kelly Wood taking groups of 30-40 people around at intervals of 30 minutes. With lots of locals creating a fantastic community spirit, people arrived on bicycle from Darrington and Newton Bar, West Yorkshire and our loyal supporters from Doncaster and Wakefield CAMRA (among others) arrived by bus and train. We also had a very special guest on the day who had come all the way from Dallas, Texas, USA all in all creating a fantastic atmosphere that spread throughout the town of Snaith and onto their Brewery Tap the Brewer’s Arms, who continued to keep everyone happy and entertained by serving excellent food and drink all day as well as having a bouncy castle, rodeo bull and disco. Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

Simon Lewis, Head Brewery said “It was nonstop all day and we were so pleased with not only the amount of people who turned up but with the variety as well of people who were genuinely interested in the brewing process and some who were then willing to try real ale for the first time. We can honestly say no-one was disappointed and the day was a huge success!” Don’t forget you can still enter the ‘Name a Beer for Next Year’ competition with your chance to have a beer named after yourself or dedicated to someone you know. Visit the News page at for more information and to download your entry now. Kelly Wood, Sales and Marketing said “We’ve had some fantastic entries so far, some funny, some humble and really touching as well as some that are unprintable! However it’s nice to know there’s some real romantics out there as well as people who really know how to epitomise going to your local for a pint of real ale. We’d love to see what else people come up with so get you suggestions in now before the closing date, 31st August.”

Old Mill Brewery would like to extend a massive THANK YOU to everyone who had an involvement in the planning and running of the day. Including the support we received from the local business as well as everyone who turned up on the day. Their generous donations helped us raise a whopping £400.00 for the Snaith Mayoral Charity, with the monies raised being invested back into the community of Snaith and Cowick. So ‘Cheers to 30 years’ everyone and here’s to many, many more! Branch Website -
