Pub Of The Year (POTY)
Earlier this year members of the branch were asked to vote for their top 3 POTY pubs. This was done via emailing all members, an article on Face book and by asking for members vote at the Liverpool Beer Festival. In total 130 votes were cast.
A scoring system of 3 points for 1st choice, 2 for 2nd choice and 1 for 3rd choice was used to draw up a list of top ten pubs. From this list the top 5 went forward to be judged against the national POTY criteria. After which the branch POTY was the Dispensary.
