Back real ale at town centre pub

Warrington Guardian: Back real ale at town centre pub Back real ale at town centre pub

TOWN centre pubs The Looking Glass and Friar Penketh are backing CAMRA campaign ‘LocAle’ supporting pubs that sell locally-brewed real ales.

The Campaign for Real Ale has been handing out stickers to those providing real ales within a distance of 30 miles from pub to brewery.

Tony Dawick, from The Looking Glass, said: “Local beer is great for jobs in the area as well as a good point of pride for the town.

“It also enhances the town by ensuring that money is diverted into the local economy.

“We welcome suggestions from customers to stock unique products from the local area and have excellent ties with breweries in the region.”

Black Ale aka mild, stout & porter has been available a few doors down @ The Lower Angel before McSpoons ever opened their doors, nothing new I'm afraid.
The Lower Angel also has it's own micro Brewery brewing the ales!
I wish Camra would support local pubs more & not the McDonalds of the licensed trade. The Tavern on Church St also has an on-site Brewery & a local brewery in Runcorn,
I urge readers to support these pubs in preference to McSpoons you'll taste the difference!

This sounds more like a pub trying to ride CAMRA's coattails rather than CAMRA offering support to a particular pub.
