Its Ale Of A Good

Colliton Club 1

10:02am 11th September 2012

The Colliton Club in Dorchester has again won the title of Wessex Regional Club of the Year in a competition run by the Campaign for Real Ale.

It's the 7th time in 11 years the club opposite County Hall has won the accolade.

The club was chosen for serving six real ales.

"We are one small real ale establishment," comments Colliton Club Chairman Ian Morton, "but winning the Wessex Regional Club of the Year again- that's one giant achievement."

Colliton Club Steward Neil Gatehouse is delighted. "We are very proud to receive this award again," he says. "We have a passion for real ale and pleased to offer a varying range of local beers, as well as those from breweries all around the country for our members and others who share that passion- like card-carrying CAMRA members."

"The Colliton Club are very consistent in selling a good range of interesting real ales," comments West Dorset CAMRA Chairman Dave Harris. "There are usually five or six different ales to choose from, which are always in top condition. The staff are knowledgeable about their beers and friendly towards all those who visit the club- in my opinion, a very well earned award."
