Wednesday Walkabouts - Newquay

This Wednesday a group of real ale enthusiasts braved the pouring rain to seek out some selected brews in Newquay town. Meeting at the Towan Blystra present the regular 8 ales and real cider including the regular Wetherspoons offering complemented by some exceptional local and national brews including Cornish Crowns Red IPA, a powerfully hopped crisp ale, that woke the taste buds with a reverbing blast of citrus.

After some complementary nibbles the brave bunch trotted off to the Newly acquired Stonegate Pub the 'Cribber', recently refurbished the Cribbar hosts a both family and sports theme, with up to 10 real ales on the bar tonight favourite was Devon Dumpling a fruity beer from Devon based brewery Bays alongside Skinners Porthleven and some Sharps and St Austell favourites.


The third stop was under construction! A pre-opening seek peak at the newly acquired Socio in central Square, brought by Craig Allen our very own Branch Secretary. To greet us Craig had organised a pin of Proper Job, which was in top form and then we were given a guided tour of the bar which will host 3 ales once its open on the 8th July, a grand opening date for the diary!

Back out in the rain the group of refreshed beer seekers headed towards Newquay's historic harbour and the Red Lion, another Stonegate pub with a full range of ales from Skinners, Sharps and national brands. Tonight's tipple was soo good I have forgotten its name, but I am sure to be reminded my fellow CAMRA members. Then we were all absorbed by the night fully satisfied that some fantastic beer had been uncovered....I even heard that some went back to Socio to empty that pin.....
