Welsh Pub/Cub of the Year 2017

As our leader seems to be very busy earning a crust, and because I’m getting nagged from various quarters, I am sending out the above results on Duncan’s behalf.
I’m not sure if I’ve copied in all branch chairs/contacts etc so please forward/cascade to others as you feel fit.
Welsh Club of the Year 2017
The winner is the Real Ale Farm, Gilfach Fargoed, which has retained its title.
Runner-up, is a new challenger, the Esplanade Club, Rhyl.

1st – The Druid Inn, Goginan (the Druid has now been entered into the super-regional round of the UK competition; we wish them good luck)
2nd – The New Inn, Bwlch

Congratulations to the winners in what were keen contests.
Thanks to the judges, primarily from the Vale of Glamorgan & Bridgend branch with assistance from Chris Charters.

The cider bar at the Brangwyn Hall.

We have got 54 of the UK’s finest ciders and perries all lined up for you to try at the Swansea Bay Beer and Cider Festival from 24-26 August at the Brangwyn Hall.

Jo Bennett of the Pilot of Mumbles and her team on the cider bar have scoured the land to bring you the best tipples to be tasted.

The popularity of the cider bar at the annual festival has grown in recent years and this year’s choices aim to satisfy the discerning palates of Swansea’s real cider drinkers.
