Pub of the Year, 13 April 2009
The Nag's Head in Russell Street, Reading, is our 2009 Branch Pub of the Year. Here Sandie is pictured presenting the team with their award.
Pub Games, 8 February 2009
We kicked off Local Pubs Week with a Sunday afternoon playing pub games at the Hop Leaf in Reading. As well as bar billiards we enjoyed darts, shut the box, shove hapenny, jenga and Pass the Pigs.
LocAle Launch, 3 November 2008
The Nags Head put on a superb selection of 12 local ales for the launch of our LocAle campaign. It was featured on BBC Radio Berkshire and in the local press, and we hope that more pubs in the area will seek accreditation. You can read more about it here.
Caversham Real Ale Guide Launch, 6 October 2008
Russ, Sandie and Martin at the Baron Cadogan. We had an excellent time and it was really pleasing to see so many new faces turn out for the event. The Orkney Dark Island was particularly appreciated! You can download a copy of the guide here or pick one up at any participating pub.
Allied Arms Beer Festival, 2 October 2008
Simon and Steve behind the bar. This was the first night of the beer festival at the Allied Arms (St. Mary's Butts, Reading) - the customers were happy and the beer was excellent. Here's to many more festivals.
Berkshire Pub of the Year, 23 August 2008
The Bird in Hand at Knowl Hill, for the second year running, was named Berkshire Pub of the Year. Here Sandie is presnting the certificate to David Browne, the bar manager.
Sausage Night, 31 July 2008
Years ago the branch ran "sausage nights" and we decided to revive the tradition. The Eldon Arms provided the venue, everyone raided their attic for beer memorabilia that was put into a prize draw, and the tickets for the draw paid for the sausages. Simple but effective, and very popular. A good time was had by all - as you can see from the photo.Share Delicious
