Pub wins CAMRA award – again!

The Augustus John Public House –  known locally at The AJ – based on the University campus, has won two prestigious Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) awards.

The pub has been awarded Liverpool & District branch ‘Cider Pub of the Year’ for the second year running. It has also been named ‘Merseyside & Cheshire Cider Pub of the Year 2012’ , after it beat off stiff competition from the Albion in Warrington, the Harkers Arms in Chester and the Brass Balance in Birkenhead.

Judges from the Liverpool, North Cheshire and Wirral branches scored the pubs on cider range, cider quality and price/value for money.

The pub goes on to compete against fifteen other regional winners in the Super Regional round, which will be judged by CAMRA’s APPLE committee between May and July. The four regional winners will progress to the finals which take place between July and September. The national winner will be announced in October as part of the cider month campaign.
