The Bluecoat, in Rotherham, was voted ‘pub of the season’ for summer 2012, by the Rotherham CAMRA members.
The Bluecoat also won ‘town pub of the year 2012’ earlier in the year, to add to its previous ‘pub of the year’ titles, picked up in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010.
Jim Crowe, pubs and communications officer for Rotherham CAMRA, said: “The Bluecoat has the widest range of high-quality real ales in Rotherham. Add friendly staff and Wetherspoon’s renowned value for money and you continue to have a winning combination.”
The Bluecoat serves a choice of 10 real ales at all times, including eight rotating guest ales.
Among those guest ales on offer, on the presentation evening, was Abbey Blue – a pale session ale (3.6% ABV), brewed by Worksop based Welbeck Abbey Brewery.
Pub manager Garry Carr, said: “We were planning to produce an exclusive ale with Welbeck Abbey, which we helped to brew, and the launch coincided with the announcement of our CAMRA award. It proved a very popular pint!
“We also ran a competition to suggest a name for the beer – and regular Linda Andrassy’s suggestion Abbey Blue was chosen.”
There was also a raffle held on the presentation evening, with £150 being raised and split equally between CLIC Sargent and the Rotherham Hospice.
