  • GBG 2021 Wednesday 3 March 2021

    GBG Selection 2022 Nominations

    The first stage of the Good Beer Guide 2022 selection process has now been completed from beer scores and confidence data. The next stage is inviting your nomination for a pub or club you feel is worthy of inclusion in the Guide, for great real ale, cider and welcome but which may have been overlooked in previous Guides. ALL nominated premises will be visited at least twice after re-opening (April 12th on) in order to be verified. Only 1 pub/club nomination will be accepted per person so you need to select your favourite drinking hole! We need nominations in by the end of play Sunday 7th March to ku.gro.armac.htronstnah@namriahc.

    POTY, COTY and Cider POTY

    The competitions for Pub and Clubs of the Year, and Cider Pub of the Year are not being run nationally this year. Sadly our 2020 entries were not judged before lockdown. So our winners - Wonston Arms (POTY and Cider POTY) and BSSC (COTY) will be put forward again when judging re-starts. Luckily, we managed to present their certificates - Wonston on Saturday September 12th 2020 and BSSC on Sunday March 8th 2020

  • Lockdown heroes Wednesday 3 March 2021

    Special 'Lockdown Heroes' Branch Awards

    We have all suffered in different ways during lockdown but pubs and alcohol-related businesses have been notably hard-hit. Despite that, there have been 'Lockdown Heroes' who have made exceptional efforts to keep us supplied with beer and hope. Your branch would like to recognise these folk; breweries, suppliers or pubs. We are inviting nominations for an award to your local lockdown hero. First you need to propose a worthy recipient then get someone else to second the nomination (just one application please). Email your names and membership numbers with a paragraph explaining why you think they have been a hero, to ku.gro.armac.htronstnah@namriahc by the end of Sunday 7th March. Presentations will be made in May.
