Dis­counts on real ales thanks to lo­cal bars’ fes­ti­vals to her­ald the au­tumn

Southport Visiter - - Camra Column -

WETHER­SPOONS has an­nounced what it de­scribes as “The world’s big­gest real ale fes­ti­val”, which will be tak­ing place at all of its pubs, writes Neville Grundy.

They will be serv­ing beers from 30 award-win­ning brew­eries, in­clud­ing 25 from the UK, and five in­ter­na­tional brew­ers.

If you’re un­sure what beers you might like, you can buy three dif­fer­ent beers in one third of a pint mea­sures for the price of a fes­ti­val pint.

The lo­cal Wether­spoons are: the Sir Henry Se­grave and the Wil­low Grove, both on Lord Street, South­port; the Court Leet, Wheat­sheaf Walk, Orm­skirk; the Queens Pic­ture House, South Road, Water­loo; and the Lifeboat, Three Tuns Lane, Formby.

Dan Fer­rier of the Wil­low Grove told Camra: “As we’re hav­ing a beer fes­ti­val from October 11 to 22, we’re get- ting an ex­tra tem­po­rary bar in­stalled giv­ing us a to­tal of 24 real ale pumps for the du­ra­tion of the fes­ti­val.

“Last time we did this, it went re­ally, re­ally well”

For many years now, Wether­spoon has given Camra mem­bers vouch­ers ev­ery year worth 50p off a pint of real ale and real cider to a to­tal value of £20.

Wether­spoons is not alone in giv­ing Camra mem­bers dis­counts.

As the lat­est edi­tion of the lo­cal Camra mag­a­zine, Ale & Hearty (avail­able free in lo­cal real ale pubs), tells us, the fol­low­ing lo­cal pubs also give dis­counts pro­vid­ing you show them your Camra mem­ber­ship card:

She added: “All cask ales will be £2.20 per pint.
