Two pubs in uphill Lincoln have been awarded a place in Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA) national Good Beer Guide 2011.
The Strugglers Inn and The Magna Carta have both made their way into the annual book, mobile app, and sat-nav add-on, due to being selected from 19 other local pubs.
Pubs get into the guide after 11,000 CAMRA members nationwide vote for the pubs within their branch area. The main criteria members look at is the quality of ale.
The Campaign feel that if the pub is looking after the beer in the cellar, then everything else the pub sells will most likely get the same care.
The two Lincoln pubs are out of four in the county selected for the guide. The Plough in Sturton By Stow, and the Butcher and Beast in Heighington were also voted in.
This is a second victory for The Strugglers Inn this year, as it also got named the County Pub Of The Year back in June.
Lincoln CAMRA chairman Bob Foulgar said that besides the 19 pubs highlighted in the Lincoln area, the other 400 nearby pubs deserve much of the same merits.
