Weavers Presentation December 2017

Thursday 7 December 2017

Weavers Real Ale House, Kidderminster, is in the final 4 for CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018! The winner will be announced in February 2018.

A local award ceremony will be held at Weavers Real Ale House on Thursday 7 December 2017 at 7.00 pm.

This micro-pub is deceptively spacious inside, with bench seating along the sides, plenty of tables and a conversational atmosphere. Light and airy, the walls display pictures of old Kidderminster and beer memorabilia. It serves eight beers, four ciders and a perry on hand pump. Cobs are always available. The ales and cider on hand pump attract a 5% discount for CAMRA members on production of their membership card. The discount doesn't cover Pig Iron ales, which are are already discounted to £2.70 a pint, and which are covered by a loyalty card. Just a short walk from the Kidderminster main line and Severn Valley Railway stations, Weavers Real Ale House is a convenient stop-off for a pint and a chat on the way into town. Public parking is a short distance away in Comberton Place. Dean Cartwright, owner of Weavers Real Ale House, said: “We took over the running of the pub just two years ago and are over the moon to be in the final four! While we’ve slightly modernised it and extended the beer range, we’ve also retained the quirky ‘front-room’ feel to the pub. We have a small team of incredibly enthusiastic and friendly staff who love to talk about real ale in a welcoming and conversational atmosphere. It’s just amazing to be this far in the competition out of thousands of pubs across the country - it means a lot to know how much some people care about the pub.”

Nick Yarwood, the Wyre Forest CAMRA Branch Chair, added: "Weavers Real Ale House was the first micro-pub to open in Kidderminster and has helped spur a real ale revival in pubs across the town. The friendly welcome, convivial atmosphere for a chat and consistently excellent quality wide range of ales and ciders quickly developed a following and also made it into a must-visit venue for visitors to the town. Above all, the greatest credit is due to the bar team whose friendliness, knowledge and enthusiasm shine through whenever anybody enters, and help to make it into an outstanding pub. Well done to them all for being recognised in the CAMRA National Final!”
