Beer festival - Derby Arms, Aughton

Jan, the landlady at the Derby Arms, has e-mailed me with details of their forthcoming Aughton Beer Festival:
  • Friday 16th to Sunday 18th May.
  • 20 beers, stouts and porters.
  • 4 ciders.
  • 2 perries.
  • Wines.
  • Food available.
Derby Arms, Prescot Road,
The Derby Arms - a landmark pub
on the Ormskirk to Kirkby road
The Derby Arms is the local CAMRA Branch's Pub of the Year (West Lancashire area). It is on Prescot Road, Aughton, Lancs, L39 6TA (tel: 01695 422237) and boasts beers from £1.50 a pint. The nearest station is at Town Green, Aughton, but it is a bit of a hike from there. Despite that, the pub is popular and has a well-attended acoustic music session every Wednesday evening.

CAMRA will be presenting the award on Thursday 15th May at around 8.30pm, with this will be a chance to preview the festival.

  1. £1.50 a pint? Your beard club has the right idea, Nev. Give award to the boozers with the cheap grog. None of this £8 craft rubbish for ponces.

    Well done.

  2. Thanks the £1.50 a pint is walkers and it's very good

  3. Did you enjoy The Aughton Beer Festival preview last night ? Look forward to seeing you Saturday

  4. Yes, I did, thanks, and also my return visit on Saturday afternoon.

  5. Managed to drop by with my missus early on Saturday afternoon.. only had a few 1/3s but all really good (although I'm constantly slightly underwhelmed by Jaipur).. Would definitely have stayed longer if we hadn't been on the bikes..
