SPBW Chairman Patrick Deller presenting the trophy to chief cellarman Nick Williams.
The LPOTY award was presented to the Hope on 27 January with a good crowd of SPBW members and regular customers present. Manager Rodger Molyneux-Roberts allowed cellarman Nick Williams to receive our plaque from Patrick Deller. Then he invited us all to get stuck into a cask of a special dry-hopped Dark Star Hophead and some Italian bottled beers, with a very tasty buffet to soak up the beer. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
