For the 3rd year running The Half Moon in Hitchin is the North Hertfordshire CAMRA branch Pub of the Year!
The branch will be presenting Howard and Wendy with the 2011 Pub-of-the-Year award on Saturday April 30th at 9pm. Please come along (a bit earlier than 9pm of course) and join with us in congratulating them on their PotY hat trick!
As a splendid co-incidence (sure…) April 30th happens to fall during the Half Moon’s 7th anniversary beer festival. So not only will there be the usual 8 ales available but a few extra festival beers (assuming the locals haven’t drunk it all by then). I’d better not forget the cider and perry, which you will also find in abundance at the Half Moon – there’s usually at least 3 available from the cellar and will probably be more available as part of the festival selection.
See you there!
P.S. Don’t forget that this now means The Half Moon is in the running to be the Hertfordshire Pub of the Year. To help with the judging we’re running a minibus trip to visit all 4 excellent branch PotYs on Saturday May 7th. The other contenders are: The Queen’s Head, Allens Green; The Woodman, Wildhill; and The Land of Liberty, Peace and Plenty, Heronsgate. See the Diary (or Google Calendar) for booking details – and book soon as spaces are very limited.
