Pontefract Civic Society is 50 years old this year, and throughout the year a varied programme of celebrations has been planned, and a beer launch is happening on Weds 24 Sept, at the Tap & Barrel at 7:30pm, all welcome, but let the civic society know you are coming.
Phil Cook, civic society vice chair said, “by working in partnership with Dean Smith (Tap & Barrel and Robin Hood Inn) and Mark Seaman (Revolutions Brewing Co.,) it’s been great to bring out a beer to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, and we’re thankful to the local independent pubs who’ve agreed to stock a barrel. Stocks will be limited, but we hope you enjoy the ale to commemorate this special anniversary”.
Civic 5X will be available at Tap & Barrel, Robin Hood, Hope & Anchor, The Carleton, Old Grocers, and maybe one or two more to be confirmed.
Mark Seaman said “Civic 5X is a traditional Extra Special Bitter. We felt this was a perfect style of beer to reflect the 50 year history of the Pontefract Civic Society, reflecting both tradition and localism. Made with malt from Fawcetts of Castleford and using British hops, what better way to raise a glass to the work of the Society!”
Another commemoration recently, saw a specimen hawthorn tree be planned in Friarwood Valley Gardens and a plaque will shortly be added, and the civic society is thankful to Colin White, Liz Clayden and Christine Cartwright for making that possible.
