2017 Good Beer Guide Launch

The launch took place at the Admiral Benbow at Chapel St Leonards.

The event was combined with the October walk which was held on a Saturday to allow the use of public transport. Unfortunately very few members took up the offer. Three travelled by train from Sleaford and Heckington, collecting two more at the starting point in Ingoldmells.

A warm bright Autumnal day meant a very pleasant walk along the sea shore from Ingoldmells to Chapel St Leonards. A very good buffet lunch, kindly provided by the staff of the Admiral Benbow, was taken on the ship deck, where we were also joined by three more members. The pub was very busy and even attracted a group of jet skiers who arrived from across the Wash.

After the launch, and several excellent pints, the group moved on the Griffin where further beers were sampled and details collected for WhatPub. Then it was back to Skegness by bus, dropping off the two for Ingolmells, and the train back home.
