Top 3 Beard Friendly Pubs of the Year ALL feature in the 2017 Good Beer Guide
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with the publication of the 2017 Good Beer Guide from the Campaign for Real Ale on 15th September it is delighted that the top 3 Beard Friendly Pubs of the Year all feature in the Guide.
The campaigners say the listing, chosen by CAMRA activists based on the quality of beer, is proof that beard friendliness and great beer are an ideal combination in a pub
The winners of the vote for the Beard Friendly Pub of the Year earlier in 2016 were theCock Tavern in central Hackney,The Jolly Butchers in Stoke Newington and the Bag of Nails in Bristol.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said the Editor of the Good Beer Guide, Roger Protz, is one of Britain’s most well-known beard wearers, but the guide entries are based on a rigorous inspection of beer quality. We are delighted that the most beard friendly pubs of the year have passed the test.
The Beard Friendly Pub
Like many things the Beard Liberation Front does, the Beard Friendly Pub poll is a mix of the rather light hearted with some more serious points lurking behind.
The Beard Friendly Pub will have an ambience that welcomes beards. That is, at least some of the bar staff will be hirsute and a noticeable numbers of the customers as well.
It will also sell beard friendly beers. That is not just standard bitters and lagers but interesting IPAs, stouts and much else in cask, keg and bottle.
The number of such pubs in the UK has increased significantly in the last 5 years.
