Lincoln pub celebrates 20th year in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide

A Lincoln pub is celebrating 20 consecutive years in the nationally acclaimed CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.

The Angers in Saxilby has been named in the annual guide for the last two decades and will receive a certificate for the acolade.

CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide recognises over 4,500 pubs for their beer quality plus a number of different factors, with around 110 pubs named in the guide hailing from Lincolnshire.

Lincoln’s Victoria pub and The Coach and Horses of Hemingby have also been named in the guide for their 34th and 21st consecutive year respectively.

CAMRA- which stands for Campaign for Real Ale has over 180,000 members who vote on which pubs should enter the guide based on a beer-scoring system.

This varies from food, family and disabled facilities, gardens and the standard of toilets.

Mike Brown took over The Anglers pub in 1993 and it offers a variety of ales throughout the year, with the Theakston’s Best Bitter the regular drink.

Mike’s son Wayne Brown told Lincolnshire Business about the achievement: “It’s a very proud and prestigious guide to be in.

“People come from all over the county to try our beers and it says a great deal about my dad and his great work he puts in.

“My dad takes great pride in running The Anglers and he will have been here 25 years next year.

“It’s no mean feat in this day and age, and I am slowly taking over to keep this traditional village pub going into the future.”
