Final beery bulletin Sat Dec 21

17.22pm GMT, Saturday.
A bus stop outside Shakespeares, Gibraltar Street, Sheffield:
Plenty of people inside the pub but as enjoyable as ever.
Loads of non Sheffield accents, which - in my opinion- shows how popular the beer tickers' ball is nationally.
Finished with an Abbeydale Chocs Away 5.5% &, thanks to a kind cellar run, a half of Mallinsons' excellent The 12 Hops of Christmas. Due on later tonight.
Good service in The Shakey, the city's reigning CAMRA pub of the year.
AllGates Poppy, an 'India Red Ale' in The Blake
Earlier I was in The Blake Hotel, Blake Street, Walkley where I had an excellent November red IPA from AllGates. It was called Poppy, 4.5%. Washed it down with one of The Blake's fine pork pies.
An excellent day out in Sheffield.
