THE FREE MAGAZINE OF HULL & EAST YORKSHIRE BRANCH OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR REAL ALE (CAMRA) CIRCULATION 5000+

4000 PEOPLE CANT BE WRONG! Once again the Hull & East Yorkshire Branch of CAMRA’s annual Hull Real Ale & Cider Festival broke all records for attendance and beer sales. The festival which was the 37th annual festival held by the Branch and the 4th held at Holy Trinity church in Hull’s Old Town, we saw over 4000 people attend and sale of over 9000 pints of beer. It was so popular that queues formed on both Thursday and Friday evenings as customers waited to try the 130 beers; over 25 ciders and perries and 30 plus bottled beers that were on offer. We would like to thank all those involved especially the volunteers who made the whole event possible, and the church for once again putting up with the disruption that the event obviously causes. A further report is inside including pictures and comments.

from the editor - Bernie Cawte As reported elsewhere in this magazine the 37th Hull Real Ale & Cider festival was again an overwhelming success, so thanks to all who ventured along and to all those who helped make it such a great event. Our next festival is on 2nd/3rd October and will again be at Holy Trinity Church as part of a food and drink festival. We will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the branch with a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Forty Beers for Forty Yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bar, so I look forward to seeing you there. My personal commiserations to Hull City for the drop down into the Championship, but we will continue to offer you the best real ale pubs in our very popular Amber Trail next season. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in CAMRA? Locally we are continuing to campaign for real ale and pubs that serve real ales. But we are also concerned about other pubs that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and are also under danger of closure.

Ken Smith is doing a grand job of keeping us informed of what is happening within our branch area. We hope that his column in this magazine brings home the task ahead for the branch. Please feel free to contact if you have any concerns about your local and changes that As you will notice our Social and Survey trips have

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 last few months: Ye Olde Black Boy, Hull Ye Olde White Harte, Hull Lord Nelson, Hull Whalebone, Hull St Johns, Hull Kingston Hotel, Hull Hop & Vine, Hull

the Doncaster Beer Festival Survey trip to the A63 corridor. pubs. Why not come along? These trips are open to all CAMRA members and at a small fee of ÂŁ12 per trip is good value for money and gives you the opportunity to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on offer within the Branch area. There are many good pubs with a great range of beers and ciders out there, the trips run either on a Saturday or Sunday on the second weekend of the month. See

the back page of this magazine for further details. Finally it was great to go on a social trip with my fellow workers from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer festival. It was good that so many of those very important people could make it. Most went in the coach especially booked from Acklams for the trip to Saltaire Brewery, and the Shipley area others joined us there after making their own way due to other commitments, see the separate article for details of some of the pubs.

hull pubs report by mark spight I would like to start by offering congratulations on behalf of the branch to Allan & Kay Greaves at Lord Nelson on being awarded a welldeserved CAMRA Committed to Cask award. Since taking over the pub Allan & Kay have made the pub a real community asset and remain keen to promote real ale with constant rotation of guest ales. Report and pictures from the presentation elsewhere in this issue.

Prince George and Lord Charles both closed since my last update as did Piper Club. We have no news of Prince George or Lord Charles at the time of this article however Piper is currently undergoing renovations and will open again soon under new management. Popular Newland Avenue bar Xanders has been sold and a positive sign is that the new management are still currently offering real ale. I have news of new openings with craft beer bar 80 Days Bier Haus opening on Princes Avenue which focuses predominantly on providing a range of worldwide bottled beers.

under new management, although I have no further information at the time of this report going to print. More positive news to report as Enterprise Innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ye Olde Corn Exchange has again reopened and continues to promote real ale. The Grafton has reintroduced real ale with a single hand pump and City Hotel introduced a new ale named City of Culture Cask to the bar to celebrate Hull being awarded City of Culture 2017. A few changes have recently taken place with the White Horse on Carr Lane having a change of name and is now known as Bottoms Up.

7 Congratulations also to Alan Murphy & the team at popular Old Town venue Lion & Key on being named the REYTA/ Hull Daily Mail Pub of the Year for 2015. Although this is not a CAMRA award it is always good to see any of our pubs receiving recognition for their hard work and dedication.

After a brief closure Courts Bar also re-opened under new manager Matthew Townsend who recently returned to the UK having spent 3 years running bars in Ibiza. I have also received news that The Bank on Holderness Road was to re-open in June

Unfortunately I have to report a number of closures as

pubs preservation society by ken smith In order to more accurately has been altered to Pubs that is the only thing that has changed and I can still be contacted at the following e-mail address pubpreservation@hullcamra. org.uk. I am delighted to say that following my article in the last edition, concerning the rapid loss of pubs in the area and the actions the branch is taking to combat this, a resident of Preston did contact me. Even though Mr McKenzie, whose e-mail appears elsewhere in this publication, took us to task over our intention to object to the loss of the Blacksmiths Arms it was good to know that people are reading and taking note of the issues about which CAMRA is campaigning. In his response Mr McKenzie makes some good and valid points regarding both the condition of the pub and its viability in a small village that is also served by two other such establishments. However, as I pointed out to him, CAMRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance on pub Key Campaign 2. This states that we will campaign for all pubs, even ones that do not sell real ale, because once you lose one it very rarely comes back and a pub that still exists can, with the right landlord, be made to be a vital part of the community. In addition Key Campaign 4 states that we should be and increasing the number of people who use pubs

regularly, so if we achieve this there might well be a demand for 3 pubs in Preston. I would also like to comment on his contention that while he was the landlord at the Blacksmiths Arms CAMRA did not visit the pub. The branch covers a vast area and includes a great number of visit en-masse during survey trips for the Good Beer Guide and then only for a maximum of 45 minutes at a time. Because we are reliant on a small number of volunteers to identify and visit pubs that are likely to be eligible for inclusion in the guide it is often few in this process. In addition it is quite likely that members did visit the pub but unless to do so (such as a CAMRA unlikely to identify themselves as such. Finally on this issue, the application for The Blacksmiths has now been submitted and involves the conversion and alteration of the public house to 3 dwellings including partial demolition. The matter was debated at our May open meeting and as indicated in my last article I shall be objecting to the application based on the loss of yet another public house in the area. I did mention in my last article that the Lincoln Arms on Lincoln Way in Beverley was to become a supermarket, what I did not know at the time was that The Victoria on the

Mail Group - hullcamra@hullcamra.org.uk

other side of Victoria Road was also under threat. The pub has now closed having been sold by Marstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and an application submitted for it to be demolished and replaced with a 75 bed residential care home. I have objected to the proposal on behalf of the branch and am delighted to say that many local residents and the ward councillors have done the same. Another pub which appears to be under threat of closure is the White Horse at Bempton, a fact brought to my attention by a Hull based member. According to him, the owner, despite only recently having spent a considerable amount of money on refurbishing it, intends to simply close the pub and board it up. At the recent branch open meeting it was agreed that the branch 13 should investigate this with a view to possibly taking action. In this respect I have been in touch with the Parish Council to gauge their reaction and am awaiting a response. At that same meeting it was also agreed that two pubs in Hull be nominated for inclusion on the list of Assets a process which I am currently working on. I am aware that this is the second time I have mentioned ACVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in my articles but without any details of what they are and what they mean. I will, therefore, be including an article in the next edition of Pub Mirror giving a, hopefully, easy to understand explanation of them.

letter to the editor 7KLVZDVQRWGLUHFWO\VHQWWRP\VHOIDVHGLWRUEXWWR.HQ6PLWKRXU3XEV3URWHFWLRQ2IÂżFHU but as a it was in response to Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article in the last Pub Mirror it was agreed to publish for debate: Dear Mr Smith I write with reference to your recent article in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pub Mirrorâ&#x20AC;? with regard to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pubs Preservation Societyâ&#x20AC;? article. In particular with regard to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blacksmiths Armsâ&#x20AC;? East Yorkshire. Whilst I can fully understand the somewhat sadness at the loss of pubs across our area I feel obliged to point out the following in relation to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blackieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? as it was known in the village. I think I can speak with some authority as I was the landlord of this establishment for a wee ZKLOH,WKLQNZHPXVWDVNWKHTXHVWLRQDERXWZK\LWGLGFORVHLWVGRRUVÂżUVW"ZHOOLWLVVLPSOH ZKHQ,UDQWKHSXELWKDGGDUWWHDPV$FULFNHW7HDP'RPLQRHV7HDP$OORWPHQW6RFLHW\DQG entertainment once a month. The slow demise of these activities soon took place and since I left and up to its closure it has had at least 3 managers looking after it. Whilst I am not saying I was the main cause of its earlier success it was a good clean pub with great clientele.

I can only speak for the Cock and Bell as this is now my local but I appreciate the work and dedication that goes into the running of this pub. It should also be recognised the amount raised by this pub for charities. The SXELWVHOIVHUYHVDJRRGVHOHFWLRQRIDOHVLQFOXGLQJDÂżQH7HWOH\'UDXJKW,WVKRXOGDOVREHQRWHG that CAMRA did not visit me whilst I was landlord and as far as I am aware they only visit the Cock and Bell to deliver the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pub Mirrorâ&#x20AC;? magazine. I think it is fair comment to say CAMRA should maybe do more to protect those pubs which are open instead of campaigning once they close. With all that being said I would not support your call to object to the change of use proposals of WKHÂł%ODFNLHÂśV´,DPGHÂżQLWHO\QRWDORQHLQP\WUDLQRIWKRXJKWV Yours sincerely JR McKenzie - Station Road - Preston Thanks Bob for your permission to publish, it can only help to get more debate on these important issues - on the opposite page was Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to Mr McKenzie.

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. 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. Participating pubs are granted accreditation at the discretion of the local branch, Hull & East 16 Yorkshire CAMRA, and subject to the licensee agreeing that they will endeavour to ensure at

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: • All Hallows, Goodmanham • Atom, Hull • Bird Brain, Howden • Bridlington, Bridlington • Crystalbrew, Brough • Great Newsome, South Frodingham • Half Moon, Ellerton

la tour de jug & Bottle With the promise of The Tour de Yorkshire coming through Bubwith Louise at The Jug & Bottle wanted to put her shop and Bubwith on the map with lots of activities going on in the lead up to the race and on race day itself; she states “A design your own bunting competition was held with the local school which decorated the outside of the shop. A beer was brewed by Brown Cow Brewery of Barlow, Selby and was aptly named Saddle Sore. Just 300 bottles were produced and each bottle is hand numbered. It was this beer that BBC’s The One Show picked up on and we made it onto National TV to 3.5 million viewers.

The weekend before the race my husband marked a very large Yorkshire Rose on our back lawn which made it onto BBC’s Look North. This was an impressive piece of land art for the helicopters to pick up on.

On race day itself we had an on licence selling Saddle Sore on draught and Louise played her trumpet in a 10 piece band outside to help get the hundred’s lining Bubwith’s main street for Bradley Wiggins and other fellow cyclists go through.

Four of us took just 2.5 hours and then a local plane company came and took some fab photo’s.

It was a truly amazing day with a great atmosphere to which a lot of hard work went in prior to event, but worth every minute!”

Designer Beer for those who don’t really like beer? Coffee machine technology gives a new twist to the brewing industry: Beer is getting a taste of innovation from Cambridge Consultants. In keeping with the strong personalisation trend in the consumer industry, the company has come up with a barista-type experience for beer drinkers – with the barman adjusting the ‘hoppiness’ level of each pint on demand. It also opens up the

“This gives brands a unique opportunity to differentiate themselves in what is a very competitive marketplace,” said Brunner. “It’s a way of building on the current trend of personalisation to create new experiences and add value for the consumer. Recent years have seen a big rise in the number of speciality beers available in Europe – and huge growth in the craft beer scene in the US. Cambridge Consultants has now taken things one step further, using its science-led approach to innovation. The brewing and dryhopping process that normally takes up to two weeks has been transformed to enable seconds. “Essentially, we’re making an ‘espresso’ of beer,” said Edward Brunner, head of food and beverage systems at Cambridge Consultants. and beverage systems, and transferred that knowledge between different industries – using some of the secrets of successful coffee machines to enable us to create personalised beer that is fresh and natural. “We knew, for example, that pressure is

The first “Real Ales” in a can are from ....Halifax!!!!! Earlier this year I had arranged with Oates Brewery head brewer Anthony Barrett to go over to Halifax to assist with the brewing of a beer. I rang him the day before to had been a change of plan and that instead of brewing they were canning. My initial response was “Oh, that won’t interest me then”. Anthony then explained that a mobile canning unit was coming to can Oates APA and Caragold XB and that it was to be “real”. Not quite believing it – I was now very interested especially when he said that commercial run in the country. My standpoint was now “count me in”.

Thus on a bright sunny day I and Martin Forder from WeCan Solutions setting up their unit in the main area at Oates brewery as an expectant Anthony watched on, waiting for the word to connect the line from his beer. After short period of setting up and correcting a few immediately, disappearing into the top of the machine, of nozzles and then being sealing by the special caps. Amazing!!

It might sound like a simple thing to do but there were many hurdles to jump over and hoops to climb through by provider “WeCan Solutions” to reach this stage. After eighteen months planning and testing and following successful trials at Brains and Everards breweries, I was indeed about to witness the for real ale in this country. Challenges such as scaling down and developing the canning unit to become

So what is the point of canning quality beer and real ale in particular? It enables microbrewers to enlarge their product distribution, whilst allowing discerning drinkers who are not able to go to the pub for a multitude of reasons to drink real ale. Environmentally, only the unit is travelling not the beer thus reducing beer miles following brewing. Recycling is also

The manner in which beer is put into the can is critical to ensure that additional oxygen is kept to a minimum. The previous tests carried out at Brains and Everards on had shown excellent results in sanitization, carbonation and Dissolved Oxygen levels. WeCan provided the cans with adhesive labels but will in future have them printed on directly.

400 cans of APA and 800 of APA is a 6.11% ABV real ale in a can to the style of an American pale ale, made with three fruity hop varieties. The Caragold XB is at 4.5% ABV a slightly stronger hoppier version of the best selling malts, Target and Bramling Cross hops and is packed full It should be remembered that as these beers are canconditioned they will need time to settle and need to be poured carefully to leave the sediment in the can. The cans are available via the brewery website: http:// www.oatesbrewing.co.uk/ and the intention is also to have them available in specialist independent beer shops, farm shops and delicatessens. No doubt there will quite some discussion as to whether these beers are “Real Ale”.

marvelous maggie in mexborough by david litten In early November Dale Palmer from the Imperial Brewery at Mexborough contacted me asking if I would come along to the brewery to collaborate with him to brew a couple of beers for his club’s “New Brewery” beer festival in December. One was to be a Christmas beer brewed on the main kit whilst the other was to be a special on the pilot plant to celebrate the life of my late partner Maggie.

discussed possible recipes anything and so we made it up there and then, although, I suspect that Dale’s experience guided us towards something suitable as opposed to the tangential offerings my head had dreamed up. In decreasing quantity order, Maris Otter, Lager, Vienna, Caramalt and Crystal Rye malts were added to the hot liquor in the mash tun and sparged for 75 minutes. The resulting wort was then transferred to the copper. Hops were then added at various intervals for bittering and aroma, namely Columbus, Simcoe, Chinook and a substantial quantity of Topaz.

I originally got to know Dale as I sometimes called into the club for a few pints whilst breaking my return journeys to Hull when visiting my Mum had a brewery and it was a pleasure to call in to try the latest creations. One in particular sticks in my mind – Hop Monster which most certainly lived up to its name. It was a beautiful beer not for the must for hopheads like me. Wowee!! Thereafter I additionally attended Dale’s regular new brewery beer festivals at the club and was only too pleased to sometimes assist with information to secure new and interesting beers. And so to brew day - Wednesday 19th November. We had

what pub update For a number of years, people have been asking why CAMRA as the UK’s largest consumer organisation doesn’t have its own online pub guide. Well now it does. You can use whatpub.com to search for pubs across the UK and then look up opening times, descriptions, facilities and of course details of the real ale and cider on offer as well as seeing photos and maps. Over 2.8 million different people have visited WhatPub since it went live in September 2013 and by early April 2015 over 11,000 different people were visiting it every day.

WhatPub has in a short period become established as the best online pub guide, and that is largely down to the quality of the information, which is modelled on the information in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. WhatPub is therefore clearly dependent upon the pub information being complete and accurate.

your updated pub details by email to the member in the relevant branch who keeps WhatPub up to date. Please check WhatPub to see if the pubs near where you live are up to date, and if they are not, please send an update to your local branch. Similarly you can send updates when you are on holiday.

didn’t we have a lovely time the day we went to saltaire An essential part of my

organising a suitable day out to recognise and thank the volunteers, sadly not everyone can come, but those who do can expect a day somewhere interesting and where there enough pubs serving high quality real ales and within a reasonable distance from home. This year we decided to take up an invitation from one of our sponsors Saltaire Brewery to visit them and spend the remainder of our day in the area.

We started at Saltaire Brewery, which just to confuse some is actually in Shipley, and spent a couple of hours as their guests enjoying the privilege of drinking at the Brewery Bar, a facility reserved for guests. Our hosts were Tony Stephenson, Adrian Mellow, Bill Arnold (CAMRA Brewery Liaison Lynne Stephenson who served

by day one of the brewery’s draymen, the rest of the time he is involved in all things CAMRA membership, took care of the snacks and later made sure our group knew where they were going; Tony guided people around the brewery and Bill was around to answer any questions. We were very grateful to all four who were all so welcoming and gave up their day to make ours.

Armed with maps, the group separated, some directly to the Brewery Tap, where again special Saltaire beers were available, particularly Madagascar, which I would hoppy, it did not last long so I was glad I had made a ‘reccy’ there before the others! The Brewery Tap is open to the public at weekends and has a very wide range of bottles to buy; yes you’ve guessed it the group took advantage of the coach to take home a wide variety of the beers on sale. In no particular order the pubs suggested to visit were: the Junction, this pub is closest to the brewery and also has its own brewery and is actually at Baildon; in Shipley -The Fox; Sir Norman Rae and Odd

Fellows; the Ring o’Bells is also in Shipley and is listed in the CAMRA ‘s ‘Yorkshire Real Heritage Pubs’ book. In Saltaire the pubs were Don’t Tell Titus; The Boathouse; The Hop; Cap and Collar; Rosse; Fannie’s Ale House and Salt’s Sports Club where some of the group spent a nice hour in the glorious sunshine watching a very intense local league cricket match.

Saltaire is a World Heritage site, a village still dominated by the mill, but never far away 31 is the knowledge the whole place was built because one man wanted to improve the conditions of his workers and how much life has changed for the better for us all since then.

Saltaire particularly a beautiful place to visit, England’s green and pleasant land is there for everyone. Both Shipley and Saltaire are easily reached by train via Leeds and there are certainly enough places to visit to make a visit worthwhile. Angela Cawte

From Brewery to Bar, Brewing a Champion Beer I was recently was given the opportunity and great honour to assist with the brewing of 1872 Porter at Elland Brewery. Here’s what happened.

With an amazing range of beers and the 1872 Porter in particular, it was a bit of a long shot that I approached Brewery Manager, Mike Hiscock in mid March to visit the brewery and possibly assist with the brewing of their Champion beer. Unbelievably he agreed and it came to pass that on Tuesday 24th March 2015 I arrived down at the brewery ready for action. Head brewer of around two years Michael Wynnyczuk had already been very busy at his 10 BBL plant, having begun the brewing process before 7a.m.

were added together with brewing sugar to provide its and Northdown hops were added. he was the brewer at Burley Street Brewery in Leeds. We both recalled this and it was great to meet him again especially under these circumstances. I thanked him for allowing me to interfere. All the usual processes took place, mashing, running off, the fermenting vessels where the house yeast was added.

CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year and because they only serve cask beers from the wood. And so on the 9th April 2015 I arrived at the Junction for the presentation event and asked Neil if I could take a peek at the cask in the cellar. And woo hoo! It was batch 2358. My favourite beer - in my favourite pub - in the wood. Neil even allowed me to pull my pint. I asked to be woken up from my dream but apparently it was all true and I have the photos to prove it. A real honour indeed!! Thanks to all the guys at the brewery for their hospitality, to Michael in particular for putting up with my witterings and of course Maureen and Neil at the Junction for indulging my 33 madness. King George had nothing on me.

Oh – and not forgetting the cleaning. It was like being a kiddie in a sweet shop. Was it really happening? It sure was. Michael gave me the gyle watch and wait time for about two weeks to then go and sample the beer.

He had begun the mashing process. A specially selected range of chocolate, brown, amber and Maris Otter malts

supporters of the brewery,

In the meantime Elland brewery had, as winner of CAMRA’s Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2015 for 1872 Porter, requested that their recent National CAMRA award be presented at the Junction pub in Castleford. And why you might ask? Well Maureen and Neil are great

40 years of hull of hull & east yorkshire camra The Beginning A meeting to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Test Support for the Formation of a Hull Branchâ&#x20AC;? was held at the Blue Bell Inn, Market Place, Hull on Tuesday 10th December 1974. The meeting, which was attended by over 70 people, voted unanimously in favour of setting up a branch. Following two further pre-meetings

Beverley the branch became part of a consortium which tried to buy the pub. At the same time it also applied to have its statutory listing status upgraded from Grade order to give it more protection under planning law.

meeting took place at the Blue Bell on 11th February 1975. It was ably chaired by Chris Goodrum, who went on to serve as Branch Chairman for the next 3 years. Pub Mirror was thought up by founder member Tim Bolton, was 34 published in October 1977 and was, throughout this ten year period, issued monthly. While subtitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bulletin of the Hull Branch of CAMRAâ&#x20AC;?, this was changed in issue No 3 to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Newspaper of the Hull Branch of CAMRA. The bulletin/newspaper included the latest information about pubs, breweries and beer in the area along with details of the various campaigns the branch was involved in. Competitions and a series of cartoons added to the readability of the Mirror. Campaigning Following the decision by the Collinson family to give up

Bass and Tetley. Under the LPS on sales licences were only be granted to those breweries while under the LPA the council would only sell potential pub sites which it owned, to them. Both restrictive practices were eventually scrapped, the LPS in 1977 by the Home Secretary and the LPA in 1981 by the council. The branch teamed up with the Nottingham Branch and CAMRA central, in an effort to stop Northern Foods (the owners of

Unfortunately despite their best efforts not only did they not manage to buy the pub but the Department of the Environment also refused to upgrade the status. Two local arrangements instigated by the City Council, the Licensing Planning Licencing Planning Agreement branch. The sole purpose of both arrangements was to safeguard the business interests of those breweries already represented in the city, namely North Country

taking over Shipstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brewery, a Nottingham based independent which supplied the Nottingham and Derbyshire area. While the campaign against Northern Foods was successful the victory was short lived as it was taken over by Greenallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Warrington later that same year. In 1978/1979 the branch was embroiled in controversy when it was claimed that it had unilaterally decided to exclude North Country Brewery beers from the Good Beer Guide because it was not â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? due The argument took place in print in the organisations national newspaper â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brewingâ&#x20AC;? and was only resolved when the 1979 national AGM passed a motion upholding the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view.

the first ten years by ken smith Local media started to take notice of both the movement as a whole and the branch in particular and it was regularly featured in The Hull Daily Mail and on Radio Humberside. Beer Festivals/Exhibitions exhibition took place on Friday 31st October 1975 at what was then known as The Blind Institute on Beverley Road. Subsequent years saw the festival move from its original location to the Humberside Theatre on Spring Street where, during the period covered by this article, one was held every year except 1982(although this was remedied with an interim one

owned by one of the early committee members Branch Social Activity It wasn’t all campaigning and working at beer festivals though. Every month Pub Mirror included a variety of articles showing what the regulars got up to in order to enjoy themselves and their beer. Social activities included both evening pub crawls and regular lunch time drinks sessions. The “Handpump Crawl”, instigated in March 1978, went on to become an annual pre-Christmas event until at least 1984. Its aim was to visit every pub in the city that dispensed beer on hand pumps and was scheduled for one day but spread over two sessions, lunchtime and evening (no all-day licences increase in the number of pubs that met the criteria the December 1983 event saw a change to the original concept in that the venues were theme.

In 1977 the event was billed as “The Great Northern Beer Festival” (note the name claimed that, lasting a total of nine days, it was the longest festival ever held. All the beer for these events had to be collected, and the empties returned, by the branch, a task apparently accomplished with the aid of a Morris Traveller

exhibition “Time Gentlemen Please” and it’s theme of the history of pubs could have been a contributory factor to making the trip; not to mention the subsequent pub crawl around Bradford. On at least two occasions, 1977 and 1978, the branch Mayor’s Parade. There were football, cricket, pool and bowls matches as well as pub quizzes against various opponents including local pub teams and other branches. Christmas, always involved events and the branch held regular parties involving both real ale and music from mobile discos, as well as themed pub crawls.

There were brewery trips, pub crawls to other towns and meetings with other branches with Scarborough, York and Lincoln proving popular destinations. There is even a record of a branch trip to visit an art gallery and museum in Bradford to marvel at the exhibits there. There again, it could be that the title of the

useful information real ale v smooth What is Real Ale? Real Ale is a living beer. It continues to ferment

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.

Rob and Helen, who run Bridlington brewery have recently been prioritising their efforts in renovating the Pack Horse in Bridlington’s Old Town, which has meant less brewing than usual. Recent brews have been old favourites of Bulldog and Jackdaw, with the addition of Grafter’s Gold, a 4% golden beer brewed with Maris Otter malt and Citra hops. Whereas they were brewing once per week in the past, it has been about every 2-3 weeks during the renovations. The plan is to have the Pack Horse open and plenty of beers brewed ready for the Bridlington Old Town Festival on 28th June. Apparently the festival procession begins at the Pack Horse, so Helen and Rob are keen to keep this deadline. An interesting footnote is that the Pack Horse is the second oldest pub in Bridlington, so well worth a visit while you are in there with their own ales to try

lord nelson committed to cask award The Committed to Cask award is presented to licensees who have demonstrated their commitment to cask ale by promoting real ale over a period of time, maintaining the cask beers in excellent quality and increasing the ales on offer in their public house. The recipients of the latest award are Kay & Allan Greaves of the Lord Nelson, Endyke Lane, Hull and was presented at the branch meeting on Wednesday 1st April. Kay & Allan, took over at the Lord Nelson eighteen months ago. At that time the Lord Nelson was a failing pub and had experienced a number of different licensees over the last few years and was selling no real ale.

In addition, as a thank you to their customers, there is 20p off all pints on Sunday and Monday. The pub is also a keen supporter of local amateur boxing, sponsoring the City of Hull Boxing Club. Stewart Campbell, Branch Chairman, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kay and Allan have taken a struggling pub and in a relatively short period of time elevated it to become a focal point of the local community. Introducing real ale has aided in the success of the Lord Nelson and praise must go to Kay and Allan for promoting and championing real ale in a community pub. Quality and a dedication to excellence prove what can be achieved and Kay and Allan fully deserve this award.â&#x20AC;?

Kay and Allan re-introduced cask ale in the form of Tetley Cask and have since added a guest beer, selected from Punch Taverns Finest Cask Range, which changes every two weeks. Although they had no experience in the trade when taking over they are now being used as an example of excellence in cellar management by Punch Taverns. The Lord Nelson is now a hub of the community and the function room is fully booked on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the pub hosts singing academies and there are popular theme nights on Saturday evenings. Sunny Sundays are packed with Play

We are to head westward is at Blacktoft and the Hope & Anchor. Situated on the banks of the River Ouse we sit outside enjoying a pint or two on this nice warm sunny evening. Some try the Great Newsome Amy’s Aviator, some go for the Pedigree from Marston’s and Old Speckled Hen from Greene King. I decide to try the Dark Masquerade a LocAle beer from the Halfmoon Brewery. There was also a ‘charity’ beer to complete the range named Help the Heroes brewed by Marston’s and proceeds from the sale is going to Help the 46 Heroes charity. All the beers receive good comments from every body as we head back to the coach to head for Howden and the Wheatsheaf. The Wheatsheaf is on Hailgate., where we had four beers to choose from Timothy Taylor Landlord, John Smiths & Tetley Cask and Rooster’s Yankee. It is good to see all the beers were tasted and all received favourable comments on the survey sheets. I was informed the licensees are taking over the Board Inn in Howden after refurbishment is complete shortly; we wish them well in this new venture. North Cave and the White Hart is next on our list. This is how sampling beers should be done. Ask for three thirds of

The selection on offer Sharp’s Doombar; Wold Top’s Mallard; Theakston’s XB and Black Bull Bitter, not commonly seen. This is a very good local pub and worth a visit if you are nearby.

The Triton Inn at Brantingham becomes our fourth pub to be visited. After the several months ago if you hadn’t seen the devastation you wouldn’t believe there had been one. Well done to all who were involved with the refurbishment of the pub. I couldn’t see any smoked beers on the bar but I did see Timothy Taylor’s Landlord on sale and very nice it was. Alongside it there was Black Sheep Ale and Great Newsome’s Frothingham Best. Unfortunately for ourselves other customers before us had drunk both barrels dry! Oh well..

Duke of Cumberland or Duke in North Ferriby is our next host. This Cask Marque pub serves up beers from Marston’s. On parade at the bar were Ringwood’s Boondoggle and Old Thumper; Jennings Bitter and Marston’s Pedigree This is a very lively pub and from where I was stood most drinkers were holding a glass of ale and not testament to the publican’s hard work. The Beech Tree, Kirkella very popular destination for the drinker who likes a wide choice of beer to choose from. The spacious pub with a great beer garden to relax in has featured in the Good Beer Guide for a few years now. Adnams Broadside and Cameron’s 150 goes down well along with Daleside’s Old Leg Over and 2 Little Fishes. The banter is friendly with the licensee and some game in the form of bending touching toes takes centre stage with part of the group, all seems to be in good fun and with a drink as the wager for the winner. The trip comes to the end and its time to go. I would like to thank all the publicans for their hospitality and Acklams coach company for safely getting us there and back. The price of a beer on the trip was between £2.95-£3.15 a pint. News about future trips are on the back page of this PM.
