Postponement of 40th CAMRA Durham Beer Festival

It is with a sense of both disappointment and inevitability that CAMRA Durham announce that there will be no CAMRA Durham Beer Festival this year. While the 2020 CAMRA Durham Beer Festival has been cancelled, the 40th CAMRA Durham Beer Festival has merely been postponed, and will happen when it is both safe and appropriate.

Pollards gets its own beer

The Pollards Inn, Bishop Auckland, now has its very own beer- a 4.3% brown ale from Camerons. The beer is named after the local legend of Sir Richard Pollard, who killed a boar that had been terrorising the area, much like the Lambton Worm a few miles down the Wear. In recognition of his feat, the Bishop of Durham gave him lands around Bishop Auckland, which are still known as Pollards lands.
