Young Members’ Stout and Porter Stroll
It may have been cold and snowing, but we did what we all love to do above all when the weather bites – go to the pub! Saturday 23rd March saw a few of the Young Members brave the snow and head off on the much anticipated Stout and Porter Stroll. As my first CAMRA outing, I was very much excited to explore some stout and porter – which I haven’t had much experience with before. Westarted in Poppy and Pint in Lady Bay before heading up to West Bridgeford to The Test Match with a heads up there was some TTT Porter saved just for us, a lovely pint I now always look out for on any outing.
Travelling back up towards the city centre, we headed into the Stratford Haven to get some delicious Plum Porter – undoubtedly my favourite! We nipped in to the Trent Bridge Inn before heading to The Embankment to try a pint of their Priests Hole by Medieval. A chocolate mint stout with lots of different flavours that come through – unusual but worth a try all the same!
We stopped in the Trent Navigation for some dinner, a great Two for £10 offer that offers a range of tasty meals and a great selection of ales and ciders. After heading to Newshouse we finished our stroll in Canal house, a thoroughly enjoyable day for all.
For anyone wanting an introduction into CAMRA, there is no better way to join in than at the socials ran frequently throughout the year.
