An award-winning real ale pub in Castleford was chosen as the host for a prestigious national ceremony last week.

The Junction, Carlton Street, held CAMRA’s Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2015 presentation, which was attended by CAMRA officials, brewers and beer fans.

Licensees Maureen and Neil Shaw were asked to host the event by Elland Brewery, whose 1872 Porter beer was crowned the winner for the second time in three years.

The Junction, which regularly serves the 1872 Porter, was itself recently crowned Wakefield CAMRA’s pub of the year.

Mrs Shaw said: “Neil and I are both delighted and most honoured that Elland Brewery asked us to host such a prestigious national CAMRA event.”
