Campaign for Real Ale

October 2012 - Good Beer Guide Launch

Fenland members gathered in mid October to locally launch the Good Beer Guide 2013, at the Eagle, Boston. As in previous years a free raffle ticket was given to every customer purchasing a pint, or half, of real ale in the pub. Pat & Richard had provided bottled beers as prizes and there was the prestigious copy of the 2013 GBG up for grabs.

Not everyone takes it seriously! GBG Prize Winner

Landlady Jackie Clarkson worked unceasingly behind the bar serving an excellent selection of Castle Rock beers including Harvest Pale, Black Gold, Preservation, Screech Owl, along with Exmoor Organic, Banks Bitter and Brains SA Gold. The raffle was drawn and it was good to see the locals winning all but one of the prizes.

Robin Hood, Boston Fen folk then moved on to the Robin Hood in the old London Road where recent landlord, Rob, and locals made members very welcome. The XB and Victory Ale being on fine form and Rob gave a potted history of the pub which will be useful for the database being compiled.
