BEARD FRIENDLY PUB OF THE YEAR VOTE SET TO OPEN
Jolly Butchers and the Cock Tavern
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the contest for the Beard Friendly Pub of the Year will run again early in 2017.
An on-line poll will open on January 2nd with the winner declared on January 15th.
The winners in 2016 included the Jolly Butchers in Stoke Newington, the Cock Tavern in central Hackney and the Bag O’Nails in Bristol
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said there continues to be a rise in beard friendly pubs and bars so drawing up a shortlist for the poll has required a significant numbers of visits by BLF Beard Inspectors over November and December.
The criteria for the Award include:
Beard Friendly Pub: a pub that welcomes the hirsute and often has a significant number of hirsute customers.
Beard Friendly Ambience: a pub that may have fewer hirsute customers but is welcoming to the hirsute through bearded bar staff and beard friendly beers
The campaign group says it welcomes diversity in both appearance and drinking but does think that there is a link between stylish beards and beers and good pubs
