Reliable sources inform me that judging has begun to determine which pub will be named the Greater Manchester CAMRA Regional Pub of the Year 2013.
The winners in each of the eight CAMRA districts of Greater Manchester were announced a few weeks ago and a panel of judges will be visiting each one to assess their suitability to be put forward for CAMRA’s national Pub of the Year 2013 Award.
The Greater Manchester winner will be announced in Autumn and will be put forward as one of sixteen contenders for the National Pub of the Year award and named the Best Pub in Britain.
The 2012 CAMRA Pub of the Year was of course won by The Baum in Rochdale. Hopefully this year’s award, which will be announced early next year, will be won by one of the following fine establishments.

Stockport and South Manchester Branch
No pub entered – After the result was made public, the branch POTY had a sudden change of landlord and the pub therefore became ineligible to continue further.
Looks to me like a pretty epic pub crawl in the making there. Seven pubs in a day – anyone up for it? If you do decide to attempt the feat and happen to write a blog post or upload any photos from the session, please feel free to give yourself a shout out in the comments.
