THURSDAY 1ST March to SATURDAY 31ST March #snpstroll
If it’s March - it can only mean one thing - The Stout and Porter Stroll is here again. WHY NOT TAKE PART? Visit any of the pubs listed overleaf and buy a half or a pint of Stout or Porter, collect a sticker and place in the appropriate box on the form on page 5 of this guide. You need to visit a minimum of six different pubs. Ensure you add your own details to the form and then post it in by 13th April 2018 to Nottingham CAMRA at the address provided. This is the fourteenth Nottingham CAMRA Stout and Porter event. It is a month of campaigning in order to promote two of the oldest beer styles still drunk in Britain today - and this year we have the magnificent total of 69 pubs for you to visit. The Stroll will take place from Thursday 1st March through to Saturday 31st March 2018. To support the event, just visit the pubs to find out what is available; many outlets will be stocking several different beers throughout the stroll. When you have sampled your chosen tipple, don’t forget to collect your sticker and place it on your form. Once you’ve visited six pubs you can enter our prize draw. The prizes are bottles of stout or porter. We would, of course, like you to continue and visit as many of the participating pubs as possible over the course of the month, as this helps support the pubs and is a thank you for them agreeing to be part of the stroll, but that is your decision. Please drink responsibly. When you have finished either hand your completed form to any Nottingham CAMRA committee member or post to the address on the bottom of the sticker sheet. Every person who sends in a qualifying form will receive a free pint of stout or porter at the Nottingham Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival to be held at Motorpoint Arena on Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th October You will notice that there are two questions on the entry form. So when you have visited all the pubs let us know who, in your opinion, served the best pint and also have a good look around the place, see what effort they have gone to, in creating a good display and then please let us know. We will then make a presentation to the winners Please note that all beers are subject to availability. Please bear with the pubs, the beer might have just gone or the next one might not be quite ready. Also, all participating pubs were invited at the beginning of January. Circumstances at the pub may have changed. If no Stout or Porter is on offer, please accept the apology of Nottingham CAMRA some things are beyond our control!
