FROM THE EDITOR - BERNIE CAWTE Well it is that time of year when are pubs get busy and we wish them all the best for this holiday season. May I wish you all the best too, so have a Merry Chrismas and Happy New Year.

50 pubs offering CAMRA members discount. Branches offer trips, socials and normally a beer festival or two. Entry to most CAMRA beer festivals around the country are free or reduced for CAMRA members. What a great gift membership could be this Christmas. Membership from £26.50 for single membership and £31.50 for joint membership.

It is a shame though that some of our festive revellers cannot see that unless they support the pubs during the rest of the year, they face the prospect of losing them. In the first 6 months of this year 235 pubs closed in the UK, and in 2018 over 900 pubs closed. Do you want to see your local close? I hope the answer is no.

Can I also just remind you that our 42nd Beer Festival is booked in for 14th to 16th May 2020, at Hull Minster. If you are interested and can help please email us at uk or check out our festival website in the New Year at

So why not join CAMRA and help us keep these social meeting places which for so long have been part of our lives and the fabric of our communities open. As well as helping us to fund the campaign to the government on beer tax and property tax you also give us the power to to campaign to the pub groups on rent and wages.

Finally, we are still trying to find someone to take over as editor of this magazine, if you think you can help please contact me at pubmirror@hull. We would like to place on record our thanks to the following pubs, for the hospitality shown for our various Branch meetings, activities over the For your part you get discount from over 3,500 last few months: pubs with your National CAMRA vouchers and Cross Keys, Beverley, numerous discount from other local pubs around Ye Olde White Harte, Hull, the country.

HULL PUBS UPDATE FROM JON MAJOR After spending most of this year looking after a pub in East Dorset I am now back in Hull and starting to catch up on pub visits around Hull.

and in bottles. (See article on page 10) One event I attended recently was the Oktoberfest in Trinity Market. This was organised by Richard from Vittles & Company,

A few changes have happened recently. Punch Hotel in Queen Victoria Square has changed hands. After almost 10 years at the helm Claire and Leila have left after their contract came to an end. Both worked tirelessly to make the Punch a very successful business. I wish them luck in any future business. The new manager is Shaun Curtis who plans on building on the previous success and looking forward to welcoming customers old and new.

All change again at New Clarence. Earlier this year Allen Slinger reopened the New Clarence and was running it alongside his other business the Tiger in Beverley. After a brief period he decided to concentrate his efforts at the Tiger and he left the New Clarence. The pub was closed for a few months until Jamie Reading from the Whalebone once again opened the doors. The opening night in November (above and below) was a great success with eight handpulled ales on the bar, since then he has kept seven ales on and we just know they are going to be of the best quality. Jamie has also introduced a new food menu. Hopefully it will once again be buzzing with theatre goers as well as being a great community pub. ales at pop up bars. These included Bone Machine, Great Newsome, Bricknell and East Yorkshire Beer Company as well as Vittles & Company. Richard is hoping to organise many more events in the market next year so watch this space. May I take this opportunity to wish all licensees around Hull a very merry safe and successful Christmas and a very wealthy and busy 2020. I look forward to getting round as many pubs as I can during the festive season.

THE ALEXANDRA HOTEL, HULL FROM JON MAJOR A new owner has bought this iconic pub on Ropery Street off Hessle Road.

reinstalling some original fittings working closely with the local conservation officer.

The Alexandra Hotel & public bar, is a grade II listed building and built in the mid 1890’s. A public house stood on this site in the late 1700’s, known as the Hessle Road Inn. It was said that it was once used as a synagogue, but this to my knowledge has never been proved. The building does boast a number of Stars of David in the brickwork.

Work is at an advanced stage on fitting out the adjoining buildings of the former TC’s nightclub and using that as a function suite, and a beer festival is being planned to mark the opening in the near future. The adjoining warehouse is at present disused although there are plans to develop it and rent it out as a number of small work units and office lets. I have heard a whisper that a new micro brewery may be one of the first tenants. Remember you heard it here first.

The area around it was also a Jewish enclave with a small Jewish cemetery next to the pub. A more accepted and documented explanation is a young architect of the time was given a free hand and designed the public house to suit its surroundings

The Alexandra came with resident African grey parrot ‘Sparky’ who once told the Archbishop of York John Sentimu to ‘eff off’. The Archbishop was on a visit to Hull and attended the annual lost trawlermans’ service and visited the Alex after the service.

The ‘Alex’ is a very imposing building as you enter Hull on the A63 Clive Sullivan Way and is a great piece of architecture that cannot fail to catch your eye amongst all the modern retail units that surround it. It was owned for over 30 years by the legendary landlord around the area Tony Dunbar and his partner Ernie Scott. Tony sadly died of cancer in April 2018, Ernie has been running it since then but recently decided to sell. The new owner Mark Walker, who is originally from Leeds is looking forward to renovating the building both inside and out and plans on Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

One great addition to the bar is a bank of handpulls, Mark has introduced cask ale to the bar for the first time in decades. He is going to always have a local ale on as well as up to three guest ales. He also sells a number of bottle condition ales as well as a real cider and has kindly agreed to give a discount to card carrying CAMRA members.

OPINION PAGE - WHEN IS A PUB A MICROPUB? We are often asked by members and nonmembers alike ‘what is a micropub?’ So we thought we would look at what we understand this term means. What are the accepted definitions of both, or are they the same?

simple pub with the focus on cask beer and conversation for entertainment, with the basic premise of KIS, KIS – Keep It Small, Keep It Simple. How does this compare with CAMRA’s ‘Definition of a Pub’ “The term ‘pub’, as defined, is intended to be as inclusive as possible while ensuring that the essential features of what constitutes a pub are present. The on-trade is enjoying a healthy level of diversification.

So why do people want to differentiate between a pub and a micropub when they do not do the same for ‘gastropubs’ or cafe bars? Some say because they are micropubs they are independant and often a one person enterprise. Some say because they are small business premises stripped back to the basics. But is a micropub probably best defined by what it does NOT have:-

Different styles of licensed premises may be branded as micropubs, pub/kitchens, gastropubs, bar/restaurants, and café/bars but, as long as the defining criteria are satisfied, all kinds of premises can be considered to be pubs”.

No lager, that’s a plus. Some micropubs even ban the use of the word and leave a swear jar by the till. Nothing extra-cold, fizzy or smooth. No global brands. Micro-breweries benefit from reduced beer duty while local producers might offer a discount, resulting in savings which can be passed on to the customers. No alcopops or shots, so a micropub should sell products that the supermarkets don’t offer. No TV. No flashing gizmos such as a fruit machine No loud music from a juke box, because having to pay for a music licence to play the radio goes against being small and simple. Ideally any music should be performed live, if there’s enough room. According to the Micropub Association, it is defined as follows: "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". There may be differences between the pubs; they may or may not have a bar, they might serve beer straight from the cask or through hand pumps. They share a philosophy: a

Mail Group -

‘The licensed premises must: (1) be open to and welcome the general public without requiring membership or residency and without charging for admission. (2) serve at least one draught beer or cider (3) allow drinking without requiring food to be consumed, and have at least one indoor area not laid out for meals; and (4) allow customers to buy drinks at a bar without relying on table service.’ The full CAMRA pub definition can be found at: camras-definition-of-a-pub/ There may be some differences in the wording, so is there a major difference in the fundamentals of a pub/micropub other than just the name? As the CAMRA definition confirms it is not the style of the licensed premises’ name as long as the defining criteria are satisfied. Real ale/cider and or perry in a welcoming environment, the rest is down to personal preference.

OTHER LOCAL PUB NEWS Hornsea We have been advised of the coming opening of the Green Owl, Hornsea, (latterly Knights) by the new owners Lucy and Matt (from the Stackhouse Bar in Bridlington and Hornsea). Further information as and when we have it. Beverley Nellie’s in Beverley is having a repaint and some new windows. Apparently the alterations to provide bed & breakfast upstairs is not going ahead at the present time.

Hessle A new cafe/bar has opened in Prestongate called the Pourhouse, at the time of writing Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

it was still settling itself in. The bar has in ‘industrial’ style decor, with benches for larger groups and opportunities to chat to new people.

It is the manifestation of four friends getting together and creating a venue to suit them, something many dream of. There are two hand pumps; with one in use during the week and two at weekends, complemented with keg lines. Although it had been open a few days when I visited the used pump badges indicated a very eclectic range of beer sold, a number of which had been brewed locally. It should add a very different dimension to Hessle’s real ale scene. We wish the new proprieters all the best in this venture.

LOCALE SCHEME EXPLAINED CAMRA LocAle is an initiative which promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of ‘green’ issues. Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally brewed real ale… • • • • • •

Public houses as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits Consumers who enjoy greater beer choice and diversity Local brewers who gain from increased sales The local economy because more money is spent and retained locally The environment due to fewer ‘beer miles’ resulting in less road congestion and pollution Tourism due to an increased sense of local identity and pride - let’s celebrate what makes our locality different.

NEW LOCALE PUBS Alexandra Hotel and Brew, both Hull Crown & Anchor, Kilnsea

Participating pubs are granted accreditation at the discretion of the local branch, Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA, and subject to the licensee agreeing that they will endeavour to ensure at least one locally brewed real ale, as defined by the local branch, is on sale at all times and that only real ale, as defined by CAMRA, can be promoted as a CAMRA LocAle. LocAle pubs now include those with CAMRA real ale accredited bottled beers. The Definition of Local: For the purpose of the Hull & East Yorkshire scheme pubs would have to stock a beer from either an East Yorkshire brewery or from a brewery within 25 miles of the pub. Real ales from regional and national breweries as well as from microbreweries can be regarded as “local”, if they are brewed within what the branch has deemed to be the local area. These breweries are considered to be our LocAle breweries: • • • • • • •

What is Real Ale? 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.

In the early 1970’s, CAMRA coined the term ‘real ale’ to describe traditional draught cask beers, distinguishing them from the processed and highly carbonated beers that were promoted by big brewers at that time.

A core objective for the Campaign for Real Ale is to promote both the consumption and production of real ale. With nearly 2,000 breweries across the UK, you can be sure to find a taste to suit all preferences. From malty, lightly-hopped milds to dark and bitter stouts and porters, there is a beer out there for everyone. To find out more about individual beer styles, please take a look below. If you’re interested in learning more about real ale and the brewing process, why not visit our Learning & Discovery section for more resources or the CAMRA shop, where you can browse the CAMRA library of beer!

Real ale is a ‘living’ product, which is typically produced and stored in a cask container. In comparison to other types of beer that kill off the yeast and artificially inject the beer with CO2 prior to serving, real ale contains live yeast which continues to condition and ferments the beer until it is served.

Did you know that beer can be part of a moderate, healthy lifestyle? Not only is moderate consumption of beer not bad for you but it can actually have many beneficial effects.

Like any artisan product, real ale requires special handling and storing to ensure the quality of taste. Well-kept real ale served at the right temperature should be lively, naturally carbonated and flavourful – representing the pinnacle of brewing art.

Beer is a rich source of vitamins (especially B vitamins), fibre, mineral, and antioxidants which all contribute to a healthy diet. Additionally, beer is the only significant dietary source of hops, so all beneficial effects of hops can only be found in beer.

To recognise real ale, consumers should opt for beer served from the traditional hand-pull or direct from the cask. You can also enjoy real ale served in bottles and cans, as long as they are ‘bottle conditioned’.

In comparison to most alcoholic drinks, beer tends to have a relatively low alcoholic strength and it can play a vital role in a consumer’s quality of life.

Why not visit our online database What Pub to find a pub serving real ale near you?

Drinking alcohol in moderate amounts is effective in reducing stress and tension and this leads to increased feelings of well being.

SURVEY TRIP ‘THE WOLD SORTIE’ FROM MARK BAINTON A Friday evening in September, a near full mini bus we are off travelling around the Wolds to visit one or two rural village pubs.

up to entertain the crowds. A rarity beer is on the bar, Timothy Taylors Golden Best not many pubs seem to stock this usually it’s Landlord we see. This was soon ordered and again a opportunity to compare the beer of Black Sheep and Wainwright .The band plays on as we depart North Newbald to head to Goodmanham and the Goodmanham Arms to award them their POTY village winners certificate and of course try the odd half or two.

First job to do is collect some of our members who live ‘out in the sticks’ from the Half Moon in Elloughton. As we are here we may as well sample the beers on offer so Adnams Southwold, Tim Taylors Landlord and from Ossett their Blonde beer are all ordered and the consumption has started. We stay in the ‘Tap’ room as the lounge was busy with diners enjoying their meals. We collect the remainder of the group and its time to move on to our next venue.

White Hart in North Cave is soon in our sights. We park up and in we go. York Guzzler (no not a heavy drinker from York) on the bar & is soon ordered by most with the odd one or two tempted by the Tetley bitter. Also Westgate Brewery in Wakefield had their Classic Blonde on the bar (no not a drag artist, the beer) this soon was lining the bar and commented upon by the few whom ordered it. The pool table was in use so we couldn’t get a frame or two in before our departure time.

Which do you have first to celebrate their award? Is it going to be a beer from the pub’s All Hallows Brewery? A Ragged Robin, a Peg Fyfe or the dark ale No Notion. Should it be a regular Nick Stafford’s Hambleton Stallion Ossett Blonde or Theakstons Best Bitter? How about one of ever changing guest beers which were from Oakham, their Citra or from Darlington Village Brewer their White Boar a 3.8% English bitter or even a Cyborg from the Black Hole Brewery in Derbyshire at 5.5%? Hope we have enough time. The award was presented to Abbie landlady and Brewster of the pub which was toasted with their Peg Fyfe what else. Time is upon us and so quickly too, 3/9 beers will have to do last port of call South Cave’s Fox and Coney and the Bear Inn.

The Fox and Coney; the word coney relates to rabbit. This is a popular pub with many a local with Friday being a busy time. We settle ourselves in at the bar one to compare is Tim Taylors Landlord. A very good selection of beer from within the Yorkshire region is on offer. From Ossett their Jester, YBH Reet from Hull, a blonde ale, Half Moon F’Hops Sake, a golden ale and two from Great Newsome, Sleck Dust and Frothingham best . The Bear Inn across the The small village with two pubs, North road would be the final pub to visit. One more Newbald, is excellent. The Tiger is the first pub to compare Black Sheep Bitter. John Smiths to be invaded by half of the group the others bitter and Sharps Doom Bar were the other go across the road to The Gnu so we don’t beers on offer so for a change John Smith and I overwhelm the other drinkers and staff. Good made friends. Last time we called in here was to old Timothy Taylors Landlord is on with Black award the pub with an ACV and I’m glad we did. Sheep, Tetley cask and Wainwright all four hand A quick stop at the chippie near the pub and it’s pulls get put to good use as all are selected home time. to try and a chance to compare with previous establishments. Across the road is the Gnu. This Thanks to all who contributed in a joyful trip until was filling up quickly as a band were setting next time! Prost ! Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

BRIDLINGTON WALKABOUTS FROM MARK PENNINGTON For a change the weather was kind for a walk around the pubs which made it into the 2020 Good BeerGuide and those nominated for 2021 in the Bridlington area. There were six of us at the start of the marathon trek which started at 2 pm. At each venue we scored the beers according to CAMRA scoring guidlines (NBSS) and selecting the best cask ale in our opinion. The Ship at Sewerby had three ales available on the bar, Wainwrights, Courage Directors and Jennings Night Vision. With three beers conditioning in the cellar, one of which was a pale bitter by Shipfaced.

Camerons Strongarm, Wold Top Anglers Reward, Bosuns Blonde and Bingley Brewery Goldie Locks. The group was down to four and the walk was turning into a crawl, as we headed uphill to The Old Ship Inn. The beers available were Camerons Strongarm, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde and Hook Norton Outside Half. We then had a short walk to the Board Inn. The guest ales were Tetleys Golden, Oakham Citra and Scarlet Macaw. The usual 4 regular ales were also available.

After a fresh walk along the cliff top we made it to the Marine bar. The two guest beers were Acorn Brewery Powder Plot and Lincolnshire Craft beers Spooktacular.

Finally we reached the end of the trail and staggered into the Pack Horse. There was two Wold Top Beers, Big Sky and Warts n’ all, as well as the two regular beers.

As we set off to head to Prior John, Stuart Fisher suggested that we make a detour and visit his brewery in the shed. He had two beers on tap, a blackberry stout and a banana, rum and raisin beer, which had characteristics of a wheat beer.

Now we had completed our mission to visit all the GBG pubs and decided on the beer of the day being the Hawkshead 4.9 ABV. Porter.

The Prior John (Wetherspoons) had four guest ales available. Bishop Wicks Divine, Butcombe, Hop Studio Bitter and Pale Ale. The shortest walk from Wetherspoons to the Stackhouse, which had four beers on. Thornbridge Lord Marples, Saltaire blond and two Hawkshead brews, a bitter and a porter. By now day has turned to night for the walk to the Telegraph, which had four beers on, Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

We are planning our next day out to review the pubs in Flamborough on Saturday 14th December. Provisionally catching the number 14 East Yorkshire bus service from the bus station at 12.45.

BEERS, BOATS AND BOOZERS FROM TONY PORTER My wife had been unsettled at work for a while and in a typical male way I thought this may result in us moving house, or having an extravagent holiday. I was therefore nicely surprised when she suggested that we give up work and buy a narrow boat! We had had several hire boat holidays when the children were smaller but I had not expected this. A year later we had found a new boat and were setting off to explore the rivers and canals of England and Wales. We started out in April 2013 and every year since we have spent 5 or six months on board our 59’ vessel that we have called ‘Holderness’ with a ‘port of registry’ of Hedon Haven, as that is where we are from.

and ended up for a few days in Burscough, a small town on the Leeds Liverpool Canal.

The Hop Vine was built in 1874 on the main road and next to the Burscough Bridge station. It was a handy point between Preston and Liverpool and for the users of the railway. It was then called the Royal Hotel. The old stables that once housed the horses for the wagons and stage coaches that traveled the turnpike are now used by the in-house brewery.

I decided to write a blog about our time aboard and this can be found at nbholderness.blogspot. com with different breweries and ales available and later I started to record the pubs and drinks that we visited with help of the canal guides and The first brewing was 30th November 2010 the Good Beer Guides.

BEERS, BOATS AND BOOZERS FROM TONY PORTER beer is the Best Bitter, 3.8% ABV that they describe as having a cedar nose with green tea tang along with spices. I don't know about you, but that does not encourage me to have one! But I did just for research you understand. In actual fact it could be said to have a malty, 'woody' after taste. It was alright, but not my favourite at all. It was just ÂŁ2-60 though! (Prices from 2018)

One of the great things about visiting pubs from a boat is that there is no drinking and driving, at least to get home. So I had another one!

I then tried the D,Vine IPA. This one is described by the brewery as having a smell of pine and grapefruit with a taste of tropical fruits, mangoes and limes. It sounds like a shampoo or washing up liquid. At 5.2% ABV it has plenty of alcohol and that is really the overpowering mouthful I got. Even at that specific gravity it was still only ÂŁ3.00.

Mail Group -

My favourite of the beers tried was the Hoppy Blonde 4.2%. The tasting notes from the brewery say that the smell is of sage and pine and the taste has hints of liquorice, grapefruit and lychees! Once again this really doesn't do it justice as a beer rather than a disinfectant! However this was a refreshing pint and went down well with a meal. The pub was very busy with people dining, and the food was very good and well priced, but also had a complement of local drinkers too. If in the area a pub well worth visiting.



CASK MARQUE - CASK ALE WEEK FROM KEN SMITH This year’s Cask Marque Cask Ale Week, which actually lasts 10 days (but who’s counting), took place between 19 – 29 September and was celebrated with various events across the country. In our own area Lena Neverdal (below right) who runs the Old Ship Inn in Bridlington decided to get in on the act. Consequently there was a beer festival at the pub that ran from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 September.

Bridlington based CAMRA members lent a helping hand to Lena, the licensee who had just recently joined CAMRA. Mark, formerly of the Board Inn, High Street, Bridlington and a long standing member helped out by sourcing the beers using his contacts in various parts of the country. As a result he managed to obtain some beers rarely, if ever seen in this area. Finally Stuart, also a branch member from the area, supplied a cooler and the cooling jackets for the casks, most of which were arranged along the bar in the front room of the pub. There were also a couple of guest beers available on hand pull sitting comfortably in the cellar. Beers available over the 4 days of the event included: Lymestone Brewery – Einstein (5%) a Blonde Continental style bitter Peakstones Rock Brewery – Oblivion (5.5%) a golden bitter with plenty of strength Slater’s Brewery – Premium Bitter (4.4%) a rich amber coloured bitter Burtonbridge Brewery – Bridge Bitter (4.2%) an amber beer Potbelly Brewery – Pigs Do Fly (4.4%) a light golden beer Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

Birchover Brewery – Kingstone (6%) a light golden beer in the style of an old English IPA (hence the strength) Black Sheep Brewery – Holy Grail (4%) a light golden session beer Woodfords Brewery – Try-Umph (4.1%) a light coloured hoppy bitter Camerons – Hopper (4.3%) a golden beer In addition to the beers there was entertainment some afternoons and every night in the form of local bands with music ranging from acoustic folk to heavy metal and even some punk rock thrown in for good measure. On the Thursday night there was a Monty Python based quiz with questions and answer sheets kindly provided by Black Sheep Brewery to coincide with their iconic beer being part of the festival.

The pub was well decorated with various CAMRA banners and posters as well as a membership stand complete with pop up banner inviting people to join and make the most of their enjoyment of cask ale and all that CAMRA has to offer. All in all it was a very enjoyable and successful event to mark this now annual celebration of real ale. If anyone, pub landlord or pub goer, knows of similar events at pubs in their area why not let us know so we can raise their profile and keep the great tradition of British Pubs going.

The first special coming off the line, late November, will be a collaboration with Beatniks brewery from Manchester, Tropic Catalyst APA, a twist on Atom’s flagship Catalyst APA. The second special will be Neutron Death Star, the 12% Imperial Coffee porter brewed in collaboration with Northern Monk. Both beers have already sold out ahead of production, and there will be a lot more special beers over the coming months, pushing the range of beers to another level. It is just as well they have installed 3 more dual purpose tanks to increase capacity by 30% to help meet demand! Atom Bar, at the Corn Exchange in Hull, has been going great guns with a whole range of new beers available every week. To complement this, they recently released a new food menu. Plans for next year’s Meet the Brewers programme and brewing collaborations are coming together, as are plans for a second venue, details of which will be released on social media in due course.

With the upgraded equipment, we can provide: Higher Quality Beer – Better Working Conditions – Improved Energy Efficiency – More beer – Relatively speaking, a 20-barrel brewery is still a pretty small-scale operation. But for craft brewers like us, it’s all about ensuring no Yorkshire person* goes without great ale. How much beer can we make, well around 1.5 million pints a year. When brewers say “20-barrel brewery”, we mean how much beer a system will brew in a given day. One of the problems with British brewing is that the units are archaic at best and misleading at worst. Case in point: a barrel. You will never see an actual barrel of beer, because it’s far too big. A barrel equates to four casks, and each cask equates to 41 gallons. Each gallon then equates to 8 pints, and you can quickly start Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

FROM THE ARCHIVES BY KEN SMITH With apologies to our sister magazine the Ouse Boozer (York CAMRA Branch magazine) along with thanks for the idea, we have decided to include an occasional article showing entries from the last 40+ years’ worth of Pub Mirrors. Hope you find them interesting and enjoyable. This first one is from the original Pub Mirror No1 printed (using a Roneo Duplicator – you can google it if you’ve never come across one) in October 1977 and relates to the first ever Hull Branch (long before it became the Hull & East Yorkshire Branch) beer festival. Pulling Power Doors had to be closed before 9pm on the first evening session of the Great Northern Beer Festival in Hull on Friday 23 September. Branch member Paul Rushby estimated that more than 100 people had to be turned away. Then on the next evening, things were even more hectic! By 8.30pm the Humberside Theatre, where the event was held, was full

again. Branch Chairman Chris Goodrum said “ It was just fantastic. I reckon there were about another 300-400 people who wanted to get in.” About 500 gallons of beer were sold in the first two days, nearly half of what was expected to be consumed over the whole 9 day festival! More supplies were to be rushed in.

WHEN IS A ‘BEER FESTIVAL’ A FESTIVAL? One aspect of the Campaign’s work is holding beer festivals; something this branch has become very sucessful at. Naturally most of us involved know ours is the best (below) but in the

cinema, and another carpet photograph (tick!) Medicine Tap; not converted from a pharmacy as its name might suggest but a Post Office Cask and Feather which was voted Rochdale CAMRA ‘Most Improved Pub’ in 2019 The Garden formally the ‘Mangoes’ Bombay Brew an Indian street food and beer outlet. Another beer festival spread out over a number of locations is the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway event. This branch runs a trip each year, and it was well attended as always.

last year or so we have followed various events that do not follow the format of all the beer on offer in one venue at one time, on when it’s gone it’s gone basis. Crudely put that is the basic principle applied to most CAMRA festivals.

There were bars on both trains this year selling beer from Kirkstall and Ossett Breweries on handpulls, it is amazing how popular the idea of drinking real ale on a train is. A small bar was set up with amongst others Vocation at Ingrow, where at other times are the engine sheds. Interesting enough to someone who likes trains beer or not.

Ironically I was due to visit Rochdale in mid November so I was pleased to find accidentally that there was a ‘Beer Festival’ on and that I had booked over-night accomodation. There are five The romantic in me loves to visit Haworth which pubs in the Good Beer Guide 2020 in Rochdale is not part of the festival but always worth the lung busting climb. And then on to the main event at Oxenhope (below) add in the additional

including the Baum (above) once National Pub of the Year, so there is already a good choice. However this festival was promoted as an ale trail, seven pubs, potentially seven days and a card to be stamped in each venue. So it meant chosing carefully in each venue to get a taste and visiting each venue in one day. Here the theme is to effectively pub crawl but in an organised way. The pubs in full were: The Baum, previous National Pub of the Year, The Flying Horse which was also offering as well the delicious local delicacy of Rag Pudding Regal Moon; a JD Wetherspoon pub in a former Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

bar at Keighley station there is such variety in the event. There is an added further bonus in the venues being in Timothy Taylor’s territory so also I added a theme to find Ram Tam or Dark Landlord, one beer, two names and just as good whatever it was called Concluding that it seems acceptable that a good festival does not actually have to be just in one place, it again seems that real ale is to be enjoyed.... wherever you go and however it is made available

cannot vote for a pub that you own or work at. This is not a competition between the nominated pubs – simply vote for your first three choices that you think deserve recognition for well kept real ale, a warm welcome and sympathy with CAMRA’s aims.

These are the only real principles we apply, so anything from a community local to a trendy city bar can win if it meets CAMRA’s basic ideals. If you are a CAMRA member why not pay a visit to some of the nominated pubs and vote if you think they deserve to win.

We intend to present the award for Winter season in February 2020, so if you are interested in attending that presentation please keep an eye out for details on our Social Media outlets and Branch Website or let us know by email.
