CAMRA's Outstanding Contribution to Real Ale Award(s)

CAMRA's Outstanding Contribution to Real Ale Award(s) Image

This prestigious award is rarely awarded. They certainly don't hand them out like beer mats! In my time at Abbeydale I have heard of only 3. As of recently – March 2012 - one of our “gold stars” The Interval Café & Bar (one of our top Moonshine outlets) was presented with such an honour. The Sheffield University real ale society and I were all there in force to witness bar manager Chris Aucott proudly collect. The evening was also featured as a Scottish night and like a wake for Brew Dog's Alice Porter being the last ever cask ale in their production line.

The occasion reminded me of October 2010, when not only did Deception win Champion Beer of Sheffield at the Steel City Beer Festival but our own Pat Morton also received this accolade. To the amusement of the whole Abbeydale team, knowing how Pat dislikes a fuss, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Promotion of Real Ale.” Like you, I'm sure we all know it was well deserved!
