Social Secretary Report – May 2016
Beer Survey Trip
12 members joined the minibus survey trip on Saturday 14th May 2016 including one first timer. After picking up in Swanwick and Ripley, we met the rest of the group in The Green House, Belper then went up to the Thorn Tree and Queens Head, the Black Bull’s Head, the Wheel at Holbrook and finished at the White Hart, Bargate. We didn’t travel too far on this trip but found a good selection of beers.
The following beers were noted:-
The Green House – Sharp’s Doombar, Marston’s Pedigree, Greene King Abbot Ale, Wells Bombardier Gold.
Thorn Tree – Scarborough Chinook, Marston’s Draught Bass, Wychwood Hobgoblin, The Bear Brewery Innvader
Queens Head – Wadsworth 6X, Caledonian Deuchars IPA, St Austell Proper Job and Tribute
Black Bull’s Head – Oakham Citra, Green Devil & Bishop’s Farewell, Nottingham EPA, Marston’s Draught Bass, Greene King Abbot Ale, Burtonbridge Stairway to Heaven, Marble Pint
The Wheel – Oakham Citra, Marston’s Draught Bass, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Whim Flower Power, Abbeydale Give a Toss & Endeavour
White Hart – Hardy Hanson Kimberley Bitter, Fullers London Pride, Oakham Scarlet Macaw, Frothblowers Midland Red, Mallinsons Hop Slap
The next free minibus survey trip will be held on Saturday 11th June. Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. This coincides with England’s first game in Euro 2016 but hopefully we will still get enough interested members to run the trip.
Anne Kennedy organised an Amber Ramble on Saturday 21st May calling at pubs in Holbrook and Belper.
