This week I joined with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Pubs to support them in their launch of this year’s Parliamentary Pub of the Year Awards.

This award focuses on celebrating pubs in our community and will give 650 MPs the opportunity to nominate a pub to be recognised as the Parliamentary pub of the Year.

The main criteria for nomination is a pub that is great at what they do, this can include the range of beer or food provided, the dedication to serving the local Community or a specialism in Music or Sports.

Nominated Pubs will submit a video to the judges, last year’s winner the Four Elms from Cardiff submitted a great video linked here.

Before selecting the representative of the Delyn constituency I am is asking pub goers to nominate their favourite local via email to [email protected] The pub with the most amount of nominations will then be contacted and asked if they wish to enter the competition.

I am asking local people to nominate their favourite pub and the most popular choice will go forward as our local entrant.

This is a great opportunity for you to nominate the pub that you feel does a great job in being a hub for the community, a friendly and welcoming place and somewhere that ensures people can come together.

If you would like to look at the nominations as they come in please follow The Parliamentary Pub of The Year awards on twitter @ParliPubOTY

On Friday, I visited the Hafod Brewing Company, Mold in a drive to raise awareness and support our brewing industry. It was also an opportunity to celebrate Hafod’s 5th anniversary.

Hafod was founded by head brewer Phill Blanchard, who has created over 50 different beers, from Iron Age ale to IPA’s, all from the four ingredients found in a good ale: malted barley, hops, water and yeast.

It is a small family-run brewery based on two sites in Mold. The original 1 barrel brewery now operates as a test bed for new brews as well as making some of their small batch beers, like Dubbel, Hammer and Moel Fenlli Honey Ale. Read more “Visiting Hafod Brewery in Mold”
