August marked the twelfth month in a row we have been able to present our Pub of the Month award to a deserving pub in the Sheffield & District branch region, so thank you to all who continue to nominate and vote for their favourite venues. Long may it continue! This month’s presentation took us to the Beer Engine on Cemetery Road, which had last won the accolade exactly two years earlier. Around a dozen branch members made their way down to see vice-chairman Patrick Johnson present the certificate to the Beer Engine team. There was an excellent selection of six real ales available on the night, although this was down to four by the end of the evening. Particular highlights of mine included Almasty DDH Nelson Waimea Pale and Summer Wine Vic Secret, two very tasty pale ales showcasing Antipodean hops. The Beer Engine is also known for its great food and the complimentary tapas were very much appreciated. A huge congratulations once again to Tom and everyone at the Beer Engine!
