Postponement of 40th CAMRA Durham Beer Festival

Posted on Wed, 22/04/2020 - 12:27 by webmaster

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.

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.
