  • Sad news

    It  is with great sadness  to inform everybody, that our friend, and fellow CAMRA colleague, Dennis (Den)  Lister, has recently  passed away, on the 29th August 2017. Den was very well known  and respected by many people throughout the U.K. both in his working life as a Telecoms  engineer for British Railway's, and also as a CAMRA stalwart, both for the local Grimsby branch, and  also a helper  at Stockport Beer Festival, and Manchester Winter Ales Festival, where at both venues he had many friends. Born in Grimsby, he was educated at Wintringham Grammar  School, and later did his National Service call up with the British  Army, then going on to B.R. employment.Whilst a Camra member, he was  for many years, branch secretary, pubs officer, and G.B.G. coordinator, also in 1985, instigated the  creation of the Cleethorpes Beer Festival, and in 2007 , was co editor, alongside Martin Clausen, of  the book, Beer..Hope and Charity, a history of Hewitt's Brewery. Personaly, he was good company, a master pee taker, with top humour, a Monty Python style  joker, and always offered to buy folk a pint. When i first knew him in 1973, he was a lager drinker, but i best not dwell on that. A lover of Rock Music, Harvey's  Beers.. Fullers E.S.B. and Thornbridge Jaipur, he was'nt a big fan of brewery visits, (seen one seen em all) he'd often say, although he did enjoy a Camra visit to Harvey's in Sussex recently. A non religious guy, he often said, "when you dead, you dead", to which i would reply, "make sure you come back and tell me if no afterlife",   "i  will"  he said.........here's hoping, and the Hewitt's Beers will be on  me. Farewell.......for now!     Graham Larn.

Definition of Real Ale:
CAMRA defines real ale as beer that has been brewed and stored in the traditional way and has undergone secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed (cask-conditioned). Apart from the Scottish air pressure system, CAMRA does not recommend any beer dispense system which involves application of carbon dioxide, nitrogen or any other gas or mixture to cask conditioned beer. CAMRA also supports other beer styles (and cider/perry) as long as they conform to the definitions as laid down by the Campaign. See Also: Beer Styles
