40 YEARS AND STILL GOING STRONG This branch along with a lot of other Yorkshire branches was formed in 1975, hence the ‘40 years for 40 beers’ festival in October. CAMRA nationally was founded in 1971 in Dunquin, Kerry, Ireland by Michael Hardman, Graham Lees, Jim Makin, and Bill Mellor, who were opposed to the growing mass production of beer and the homogenisation of the British brewing industry. The original name was the Campaign for the Revitalisation of Ale. Our current aims in the organisation are not that different for the original ideas in 1971: a) Protect and improve consumer rights, b) Promote quality, choice and value for money c) Support the public house as a focus of community life d) Campaign for greater appreciation of traditional beers, ciders and perries as part of our national heritage and culture. e) Seek improvements in all licensed premises and throughout the brewing industry. and the premises that serve and brew it, membership forms are on page 20 of this magazine and in good pubs everywhere.

from the editor - Bernie Cawte Well it’s Autumn already, whatever happen to Summer? Looking forward to our 40th anniversary ‘Fortyfest’ at Holy Trinity on 2nd and 3rd of October, as part of their ‘Fortyfeast’ food and drink festival. We will be having ‘40 beers for 40 years’ all on handpumps, along with brewery bars from our local brewers and hopefully some national brewers as well. There will be a small selection of ciders and bottled beers also available. On this special occasion we will be launching our 40th anniversary booklet, highlighting the story of the forty years. The book has been lovingly put together by Ken Smith and is a 40 page publication, which we hope It is also the start of the new football season and in conjuction with Hull City supporters club, we have continued our popular ‘Amber

Trail’ article highlighting some real ale pubs near the grounds where the Tigers will be playing. If you follow the other pubs you feel would be of interest for future matches feel free to contact me at my email address on page 3. Elsewhere in this edition campaign for ACV’s or Asset of Community Value. This campaign is about protecting those pubs that local people feel are asset of community value. Please read this article and contact Ken Smith if you feel your pub should be an ACV. October is Cider month, a yearly event to promote cider (and perry) to the general populus of this country.

hull pubs report by mark spight I’d like to start my Hull pubs news for this quarter by passing on my congratulations on behalf of the branch to licensee of St John’s Hotel; Adrian Martin on being awarded runner up in the Marston’s national cask ale pub of the year 2015. This is an amazing achievement particularly when you consider the number of Marston’s pubs across the country and is testament to the hard work put in by Adrian and the staff. The good news continues as I am pleased to report two new real outlets have appeared this quarter. These are The Bank which recently reopened and the popular Lenny’s Bar (both Holderness Road). The Bank is currently offering two hand pumps with Hobgoblin & Doom Bar seen regularly and Lenny’s have had Thwaites Wainwright seen regularly. Our thanks go to licensees of both pubs for supporting the growth of cask ale. Another outlet to introduce real ale this quarter was Hull Cheese who had three beers from local brewery Atom available during the Yum food festival. Hopefully sales proved positive enough for them to consider making real ale a permanent feature. A word of praise must go out to the management of JD Wetherspoon outlet Willliam

Wilberforce who have really encouraged promotion of real ale during recent months. The highlights of which include regular meet the brewer events and throughout August a regional beer festival was held which had all hand pumps dedicated to Yorkshire ales. Promotion of regional ales has also been high on the agenda recently at both Walters Bar & The Whalebone as Paul Hamilton from Walters & Jamie Reading from The Whalebone have introduced many ales from various regional breweries not seen to often in the area. The Whalebone has also introduced Great Newsome Frothingham Best as a regular which replaces Copper Dragon Best Bitter. A pat on the back also goes to Lee Kirman and staff at The Minerva who have worked tirelessly to host a number of real ale and cider festivals this quarter to coincide with taking place around Humber Street and Hull Marina.

Further redevelopments have happened at Four in Hand on Holderness Road and an application for a new license has been submitted for another East Hull pub Lord Charles. Sold signs also recently appeared at Elephant and Castle although at the time of this article I have no news as to whether it is to be redeveloped and opened as licensed premises. Sadly I report that Old Mill Brewery has made historical pub Station Inn on Beverley Road available for sale. At the time of this article the pub was available for sale at a price circa £145,000. Finally I am pleased to report that work is well underway on the new pub being built on Princes Dock Street which is to be named Furley & co. the pub will be a welcome addition to Hull’s old town real ale circuit and provide a range of quality ales particularly as Ian Allott from the extremely popular Chequers Micropub (Beverley) is involved in the project.

Many of you may have already noticed that Marston’s outlet The Goodfellowship has recently undergone a major redevelopment both inside and out with cask ale still a major focus in this new look pub.

Barton bimble Saturday 25th July saw an intrepid group of Hull CAMRA members venture into Lincolnshire to sample the delights of drinking across the water. Three of the members were so keen that they caught an earlier bus by mistake and so had an impromptu visit to the White Swan in Barton ahead of the main party.

Here they sampled Highland Brewing Company Orkney Best and Clarkes Nineteen. Three real ciders were also on 14 offer. By this time the rest of the group had arrived at the Interchange so we rejoined them on the Humber Fastcat bus en route to Winterton. First stop was the Butchers Arms with a choice of St Austell Tribute, Adnams Broadside and Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold.

Horncastle Ales Angel of Light and Batemans XB. This pub also boasts an impressive collection of pump clips on the ceiling of the back bar. All too soon it was time to board the Fast Cat bus for the next leg of the journey

The plan was to stop off at South Ferriby on the way back to Barton. Pete’s famous charm proved invaluable on the bus as a lady passenger informed us that one of our intended pubs was now a gastro establishment and very expensive. We decided to give this one a miss and headed for the Nelthorpe Arms. This pub is quite hard some side streets. Our group were a little disappointed to the form of Sharp’s Doombar. However some members were more interested in a buffet which had been laid out on the pool table for an event that evening.

Then it was just a short walk up the road to the George Hogg. Here the beers were all local, featuring Tom Woods Lincoln Gold and Best Bitter,

After an impromptu photo opportunity at the bus stop it was on board the next Fastcat back into Barton. Under the expert guidance Nav” we alighted at the Market stop, a former Wards Brewery pub, the Wheatsheaf. Beers on offer were Theakston’s Best Bitter, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Everards Tiger and Purity UBU. The latter provoked some interesting debate about the correct pronunciation of the beer name. Some members took advantage of the pretty beer garden at the rear of the pub. Then it was across the road to the Huntsman. This bistro/ restaurant was formerly known as the Stables. Two beers were on offer from Horncastle Ales – Angel of Light and Lilith’s Lust. Although this establishment is mainly a restaurant we were informed that drinkers are welcome in the bar area although the restaurant can get busy during the evening.

Just up the street is the imposing George Inn. This pub has been refurbished to a very high standard and

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.

Give Me Strength by David Litten One my favourite pubs in Yorkshire is the Cross Keys at Siddal near Halifax. Licensees Hugh and Ruth serve up some fantastic cask ales and real ciders, their clientele are some of the most friendly I have ever known and amongst its ranks is Barry the championship winning pork pie maker whose perfectly formed creations are always available (to the delight of pub dog Poppy). Throw in a fantastic roster of bands of all styles on Sunday afternoons and what is there not to be ecstatic about? There is a great annual beer festival held every August and this year’s was no exception. The pub regulars like their strong beers and this led to Hugh asking award winning top Yorkshire brewer, Tony Rogers and myself to come up with a strong festival special, ABV. Tony thought we could get near and thus, early on a Tuesday morning in mid July he collected me from Howden railway station and we drove to his home and brewery in the sleepy village of Ellerton close to the River Derwent. We came up with the idea of a

Double IPA and spent the day having a fun time recounting beery stories while getting on with the serious creativity business. For the strength to

be high less liquor (a technical term for water no less) and more malt had to be used in the mashing process. The mashing paddle was almost able to stand up on its own and was very exerting on the old (in my case) arm muscles when it came to stirring the magic mixture. Once the transfer to the copper had taken place Tony handed me the malt shovel and said but fortunately he and partner Jackie had practicality in mind when building the brewery and had decided upon a tilting one. Phew!!! And to give him his due, Tony did clean out the copper boiling vessel once the wort had been transferred to the fermenter. It was like the re-staging of an episode of Jeux Sans Frontières from the 1970’s. He climbed in through a narrow hole in the front and his head popped out above the parapet. Tony made some calculations with the aid of a hydrometer and a calculator he predicted that our as yet unnamed beer would be somewhere between 9% and 10% ABV. Just what Doctor Hugh had ordered!! Having completed our work for the day, the phone rang and it was Hugh. He had thought of the name for the beer – something to do with Hull, Hell and Halifax he said. Well I live in Hull and Hugh is a stone’s throw from Halifax. Presumably that leaves Ellerton unjustly as Hell. It is such an idyllic village it seems more like Heaven to me. Then

the idea developed. Why not on my surname? Beggars Litany was the 1622 work of Water Poet John Taylor and Hell and Halifax, Good Lord deliver us!” That was it for a couple of weeks until the opening day of the Cross Keys festival. Litteny on the bar with a crazy pumpclip. A copy of an old etching of the Halifax Gibbet that was used to chop the heads of thieves off had my alter ego’s bonce falling 21 to the ground by the light of a Half Moon. You could not make it up except that somebody did! I apologized to Hugh for not quite getting the beer to ok I love it and I’m keeping the other cask to myself.” He then led me outside to the beer garden where a working gibbet, made by a local joiner stood and I was jokingly (I hope) decapitated. All great fun and our beer wasn’t half bad. Postscript: The beer has been available locally in the Chequers Micropub in Beverley using the normal style pumpclip. Both proprietor Ian and I still could not stop laughing when I visited. Crazy!


a cracking survey trip A Sunday afternoon in June; we’re to survey the Holderness village pubs, just outside of Hull. After picking up along Beverley Road, Hull Truck and Holderness Road we head off to the Nags Head in Preston (below).

This Cask Marque pub caters for drinkers and diners by having separate rooms and also families as there is a 22 play area outside for the kids. We settle down to sample a

The bar is a good size and accommodates bar stools at one end. As it is a Marston’s the beers are from their portfolio and when we visited we could taste Jennings Cumberland; Hobgoblin Gold and Marston’s Bitter-Help the Heroes charity ale. Reference to bar stools is down to the title, when one of our group sat down on the stool his shirt rode up and his jeans rode down revealing....... much to his embarrassment and everyone’s amusement, Sat Nav take note. Time to move on and next is Humber Tavern and Royal Oak in Paull. ‘Tavern’ as it’s locally referred to is a large two roomed pub, a bar and dining area, which has views

Royal Oak 2 minutes down the road. another Marston’s outlet. On the bar is Jennings Cumberland and soon to sell out was the Banks Sunbeam. There are three distinct rooms and a raised outside beer garden/patio overlooking the Humber and the county of Lincolnshire. As most only managed to taste the very good Cumberland we soon were on our travels to Hedon. The Queens Head (below)

That’s right it was on the bar along with Moorhouse Summer Yarn a light and refreshing pale beer, Sharps Doombar, Ossett Blonde, and Tetley Cask. This very popular pub with a big rugby league following clientele was full as a game had been playing earlier; Barry D was in his element with this as he’s never seen this many supporters. All the beers were in very good form and such a wide variety, only missing a dark beer. After a couple of scrums for another pint we had to move on.

Haven Arms. Our last port of call so to say, as it’s situated on the Haven area of Hedon. The area so called came about when Hedon was a major port on the Humber around 12th & 13th centuries. This free house is a very popular establishment with the young and old frequenting it and who can blame them? They are participants in the LocAle scheme so on offer was Great Newsome’s Ploughman’s Pride and Holderness Dark a rich dark mild at 4.3% ABV; complementing the bar Rudgate Mythical, Brew

Cumberland and two ciders Moonshine and Black Dragon. As it was the last one of the day the extra half was taken by most. So we come to the end of our trip time to round up the happy and merry bunch and get them home. I would like to thank all publicans and their staff for their hospitality & Acklams coach operators for very enjoyable day out. Not forgetting Barry D, Sat-Nav and especially to Steve our social secretary for their ‘bitparts’ and where the title is born.

To start we had a full coach Walkington we split into two groups. The two pubs to be surveyed were The Barrel and the Ferguson and Fawsitt. The Ferguson and Fawsitt (below) has 6 hand

pulls a separate upstairs & downstairs bar and a large dining area with a carvery. The beers which are their 26 regulars are Black Sheep, Courage Directors and one from Great Newsome Brewery which was Frothingham best today. The three others were Wold Top Wold Gold, Great Newsome’s Ploughman’s Pride & Yorkshire Blackout. On August 5th Wold Top held a’ Meet the Brewer’ night here. No sooner as we sat down it was time to drink up and get to the Barrel. At the Barrel which no longer the only Thwaites outlet in our area we sampled Thwaites Wainwright, Lancaster Bomber & Marston’s Pedigree along with Sunny Mead and Rosie Pig Cider. All the beers were very good and some disappointed faces when it was time to move on. The Carpenters Arms in

not far from Walkington so round one of our ‘on the bus’ drawn. We are quickly in the pub as the selections of beer are all very tempting. We have a choice of John Smiths Cask, Golden Pippin, Brown Cow Thriller in Vanilla, from the Grey Hawk brewery (Skipton) 1492 New World 4.2% bitter, Blonde Obsession 4%, and Half Moon bitter. After having a laugh and a joke with the regulars and enjoying the hospitality we move on to Goodmanham Arms. The Goodmanham Arms opposite the All Hallows Church has named their brewery after it and there is always a regular selection from the brewery on the bar. Today was Peg Fyfe, No Notion and Ragged Robin. Also regular is Theakston’s Best, Whitby Black Dog, Hambleton Stallion. The guest beers were, Adnams Ghost Ship and a new beer from All Hallows brewery, Elder and Wiser. A sweetish tasting beer this wasn’t overbearing on the taste buds as others seem to be and lastly Twisted Sister English pale ale. This pub is a regular in the GBG so hopefully it will be in the 2016 edition. With farewells done, we‘re off up country to South

Dalton and the Pipe & Glass. This Michelin star establishment is also a regular in the GBG, wonder if it is this year? They have their own house beer brewed by Great Yorkshire Brewery at Cropton called Two Chefs and the other regular is Black Sheep, The two guests were both local beers from Wold Top Against the Grain and Great Newsome’s Finckle, which is a very nice 5.5% IPA. Moorlands Farm cider also a local producer from the area and very good it was to. It’s getting late as we head to our last pub in Lund. The was completed just in time as we turn in to the village. At the end of the village green stands the Wellington Inn (below) in all its glory. We

seem to have another regular entrant in the GBG, three ‘on the bounce ‘now. Theakston’s Best is a regular along with a Timothy Taylor beer and their guest beer was from Great Newsome, Sleck Dust. As part of the LocAle scheme it the trip with one...well two. I would like to thank all the publicans for their hospitality and to Acklams coaches for making the trip a success.

holderness ale trek part two We started the trip with a visit to the Blue Bell Inn, Old Ellerby. This delightful village pub has been run by Dave and Shirley Diamond for twenty four years. When we arrived, Dave was just starting to mow the bowling green, ready for a friendly game later in the afternoon. The regular beers

are Tetley Bitter and Sharps Doombar, whilst the guest beers on during our visit were Great Newsome Sleck Dust and Tom Woods Lincoln Gold.


Getting the surveyors back on the coach is like herding cows, but we made it, and headed off to the Falcon Inn, Withernwick, ten minutes up the road on the way to Aldbrough. The Falcon was bought a year ago by licensee Lyndsey Johns and her chef husband Richard. The pub reopened after a refurbishment to extend the restaurant area to separate it from the bar. When we visited, the beers on offer were Tetley Bitter, Taylors Landlord and

Wold Top Headland Red. We next headed to the coast road and detoured north to Cowden for a visit to the Cross Keys (formerly the Blue Boar). The pub is adjacent to the Cowden Holiday Park run by Larkham Leisure. The Cross Keys is now managed by Mark Wouldhave on behalf of Larkham Leisure, with a public bar, lounge and restaurant, catering to the caravan site as well as many customers from the surrounding area. We were able to enjoy Taylors Landlord, Great Newsome Frothingham Best and Wold Top Wolds Way. Turning south again, we took the scenic back road through Humbleton to Burton Pidsea for a visit to the Nancy. This village pub, incorporating a tea room and ice cream parlour, is owned by the Soper Group, represented in the pub by Dee Soper and pub manager Gary Hicks (my sincere apologies for an unfortunate spelling mistake in issue 91). This was our fourth LocAle pub of the survey, and we were able to sample Great Newsome Harvest Gold and Black Sheep Bitter.

drive towards Hornsea, we called into the Roos Arms. Unfortunately, the Wentworth Imperial Porter was on the turn and we had to exchange it for Great Newsome Harvest Gold. We were informed that the sale of the pub had been announced, but the staff didn't know at the time who the owners were (see Holderness Pubs Report). This means that at the time of going to press, it isn't clear whether the Roos Arms will remain a LocAle pub.

We then pushed on into Withernsea for a visit to the Commercial Inn (above). This much improved pub is becoming an oasis for drinkers in Withernsea, and is run by licensee Les Botham. At the time of our visit, cask ales on offer were Sharps Doombar, Batemans, Reverend James and Middle Wicket plus Green King IPA. A slight detour on the Patrington road takes you into

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 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.

The primary responsibility for updating WhatPub lies with branches, but all members and customers can help. If and when you use WhatPub (members can login using your membership number and password) then you will see at the top of each pub entry a Submit Updates button. This brings up an online form, which when submitted sends

CAMRA members can also assist in the selection of pubs for the Good Beer Guide by scoring the quality of the beer they are (hopefully) enjoying.

a cut above at the tailors chalk, howden On June 1st 2015 the whole real ale scene in Howden changed for the better when Tony and Lynne Bonser opened the Tailor’s Chalk micropub at 3 Market Place.

With a nod to its historical past, the name recalls the original premises namely Wards’ Tailors. Built in Victorian times the building remained in family hands through the generations until the post war era. More latterly it has been a series of fast 34 food emporia before being closed for a couple of years.

Originally working in recruitment Tony and Lynne had more recently successfully run the Minster View pub in the town for a pub company before deciding that what they really wanted to do was to run their own pub and they began to look for a business opportunity in the licensed trade in the Howden area. Once the deal to take on the

premises was done, they got cracking and used their existing trade connections to equip and set up the bar and cellar. It was all hands to the pumps (in more ways than one) and sons Dan and Tom mucked in to get the place ready. The pub is cosy and already been described on more than one occasion as the size of a large garden shed. Don’t let that fool you as it makes up for chic charming decor” being comfortable without being over styled.

a range of well chosen bottled beers, mostly from the UK and Belgium. For those not into beer there is a decent selection of wine and bubbly. The pub has, in just a few weeks, become a great social gathering place not only for quality beer but also for always in mind, Tony and Lynne already host a variety of special entertainment evenings, namely Yorkshire tapas nights, folk music sessions, quizzes and they have recently acquired an old record player to spin those vinyl platters that many of us remember fondly. The pub has already become very popular as a community hub and it does not stop there.

Tony did some market research re cask beers and for the time being has settled on Sharps Doom Bar and two beers from local microbreweries. One of these is usually from Tony and Jackie Rogers at their lovely Half Moon microbrewery in Ellerton and the other handpump often has a beer from either Bird Brain from just around the corner, Brown Cow or Great Heck. Hopefully the number of cask beers will increase in the near future as the word spreads. Great stuff. To complement these there is

40 years of hull of hull & east yorkshire camra Introduction During this period the anniversaries. February 1985 was the 10th February 1992 was the 18th and December 2004 was the 30th since meeting. Naturally all three occasions were marked with suitable celebrations and events. The branch had good links with others in the Yorkshire region and regularly hosted regional meetings and saw its pubs recognised with the presentation of regional awards. Branch Matters A number of changes to 36 committee personnel took place over the decade including 4 different branch chairs. One notable departure was that of Jim Woods who, in 1987 after 4 years as chairman, left to join the church. Pub Mirror For two and a half years, between January 1985 and April 1987, Pub Mirror continued to be produced monthly, albeit with 6 different editors, including 3 in 1987 alone. However publication suffered and there were often sizeable gaps between issues including one year, 1991, when none were published at all. Despite this the newspaper did develop and change with the most obvious being the

new A5 format and the gradual increase in size to 12 sides by the end of the decade. Much of that change occurred following the arrival of Alan Canvess as editor in 1992. Although Pub Mirror retained its original name numbering was restarted and it became a regular bi-monthly periodical.

extended to 11pm as it had already been in the East Riding. The branch led the campaign to change this but it was not until 13 February 1986 that the change was agreed. They did actually go one step further and allowed 11.30pm closing on the Saturdays of Bank Holiday weekends.

Campaigning Despite this apparent success, The biggest local issue to attract the branch’s attention during this period was the attitude of the local licensing magistrates to new pub licences and pub opening hours. Even after the repeal of the LPA and the LPS (see 1975 – 1984) the branch, along with the local Licensed Victuallers Association, had a running battle with the licensing bench over these two issues. Despite evidence from the local police that overcrowding of pubs in the city centre was a major factor in late night violence the magistrates steadfastly refused to grant licences to almost every new application, both in and out of the centre. Criticism of the licensing justices also came from city councillors when plans to regenerate the old town were thwarted by the regular refusals of licences for that part of the city, sometimes despite the backing of police and local planners. Extensions for special occasions were regularly refused as was any application for the closing time to be

led the branch to call both locally and nationally for an end to the current system of appointing licencing magistrates and instead for them to be democratically elected and accountable (see item under National AGM). Another area for concern was the takeover of North Country Despite their promises to retain the North Country beers and overwhelming evidence from the branch Hull Brewery bitter and mild were products. National Campaigns In addition to local issues the branch continued to support national campaigns as follows • petitioning against the budget increase in beer duty • petitioning against Guinness decision to discontinue its • campaigning against the ever increasing cost of beer by urging local landlords to sell

Awards The Pub of the Month scheme, started in 1983, only lasted until July 1994 when it was replaced with a Pub of the Season award. It fared a little better with the last one being presented to The Tap & Spile Beverley in Winter 1996/7. Meanwhile the Pub of The Year award, also started in 1993, continued to be an important part of branch activity and its presentation was a particular highlight of the calendar.

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.

Examples of Traditional Handpumps What Wh at are ‘Smooth’ ‘‘Sm Sm th th’’ beers? be s? 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.

west bank wherry by tony garrett On past visits to Bethlehem and its environs, I had discovered the Taybeh brewery producing a golden beer (really a light lager) and a pleasant dark ale. It was good to see that the area had a limited brewing industry. In August this year, when visiting the area for the third annual music and arts festival in the heart of Bethlehem, I two breweries in the area, but each of them producing four beer styles, including (between them) Golden, Amber, dark, stout, white (a
