Chesterfield's top pubs - according to the experts
The Campaign for Real Ale celebrates its 50th anniversary this week.
The group was started in a pub in Kerry, Ireland, when four friends, on a drinking holiday, united in their opposition to the growing mass production of beer and the homogenisation of the British brewing industry.
Interest in CAMRA spread rapidly, and within two years, more than 5,000 people had joined up, while by 1991, membership reached 30,000.
It is now the largest single-issue consumer group in the UK, with more than 170,000 members across more than 200 branches.
The Chesterfield branch, which has more than 800 members, was formed in 1977.
And to celebrate CAMRA’s golden jubilee, Chesterfield branch officials have shared the top 10 pubs in their latest pub of the year awards, as voted by members.
