Pub's pints are the tops for ale fans.

Byline: By Richard Howard

AN ALVECHURCH pub has been serving a tasty tipple that has gone down a storm with punters.

Real ale drinkers have voted The Weighbridge in Alvechurch the CAMRA Pub of the Year 2008.

Delighted licensees John and Jayne Humphreys were presented with the award this month.

Jayne Humphreys said: "It's wonderful news and we're over the moon that our hard work has been recognised."

The award was voted for by members of the Redditch and Bromsgrove branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.

The pub boasts three real ales with Tillerman's Tipple, 3.9 per cent ABV, described as the highlight.

Other aspects of the pub that impressed the judges were the friendly service, the value for money and the home cooked food.

The Weighbridge is situated next to the Worcester Birmingham Canal on the western edge of Alvechurch, adjacent to the railway station.

It is featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2008 and is also hosting a beer festival on May 30 and 31 to celebrate their recent success.

The festival runs on Friday evening, 5pm to 11pm, and Saturday, 11am to 11pm.
