Pub of the Season Competition

Introduction Award

Many pubs in the Deal, Dover and Sandwich area sell good quality real ale and cider, support local communities and promote the aims of CAMRA. However, not many of these get proper recognition through the Good Beer Guide or CAMRA Pub of the Year competition.

So we introduced the Pub of the Season (POTS) Competition.

This is a simple way for CAMRA members to nominate and vote for pubs that they feel are making a contribution to local beer and cider, local communities, the work of CAMRA and reflect what truly makes a great real ale pub.

How does it work?

There are two POTS competitions each year: Summer (May-June) and Winter (Nov-Dec).

At the May/Nov branch meeting the competition is opened and members are asked to nominate a pub they believe should win the competition. The reasons for nominating are many and varied. For example:

At the Jun/Dec branch meeting, the nominations are reviewed and those attending the meeting are asked to vote and a winner announced.
