Trafford & Hulme Branch have voted Costello’s Bar, Goose Green, Altrincham as their Pub Of The Season for Summer 2011.The presentation will be made on the evening of Thursday 21 July 2011 from 8pm.
This is a great accolade for a pub that has only been open since early December but even in that short time it has become firmly established on the Altrincham real ale circuit and already embraces the local community with cycling clubs and vintage motor cyclists meeting there. Recently they have had the local Bollin Morris dancers and visiting Rostherne Morris doing a wonderful display in Goose Green inviting all onlookers to join in. Watch out for them dropping in again in November.
Costello’s Bar is the brewery tap for the Dunham Massey Brewing Company and takes it’s name from the family name of the head brewer, John, and his two sons, Anthony & Jason, who own and run both the brewery and the pub. Costello’s Bar is a LocAle haven having six handpulls on the bar with Big Tree Bitter being a constant feature and a mild, either Dunham Dark or Dunham Light, always being available. On the subject of mild, Costello’s have taken part in Mild Magic with an extra hand pump dispensing the infamous Chocolate Cherry Mild. There is even talk of this perhaps becoming a permanent feature in the cellar so if you want to keep it there, go in and tell the person behind the bar.
The remaining handpulls dispense an ever changing selection from the extensive brewery portfolio. A real lager is also available, Altrincham Pilsner served using cask breather, which is also brewed at the brewery and is neither filtered or pasteurised and is very tasty.
Please come along on July 21st and help us celebrate this award.
