London Drinker Magazine 2014
On page 36 under Fuller’s news it is reported that the Griffin Trophy has been won by the Anglesey Arms in Brackenbury Village. The pub is of course the ANDOVER Arms.
Page 22 article on The Harp's award does not state that it was a joint winner on par with the Cleveland Arms. It implies it was the single individual winner. for full details go to http://www.westlondon-camra.org.uk/
Frank Baillie was the author of the ground-breaking the Beer Drinker's Companion (published 1973) and was a great influence on the fledgling CAMRA. He passed away recently at the age of 92 and at his funeral on 17 February 2014, the address was given jointly by Graham Lees and Michael Hardman, two of CAMRA's founder members. These are the original notes; the version actually delivered may have differed slightly. Frank requested that the beer for his wake should be Hop Back GFB and the brewery were proud to make a gift of a cask accordingly.
There is a piece in the magazine that there are rumours the Angel, Hayes is up for sale. Fuller's have told us "Not true!"
