The Trafford & Hulme Pub Of The Season for Summer 2016 is The JP Joule.
Situated on Northenden Road in Sale, the JP Joule is just a few minutes’ walk away from the tram station, and is on several major bus routes.
Spread over 2 floors, with a bar on each, there are a total of 13 handpumps, ensuring a good range of real ale in this popular Wetherspoon pub.
‘House’ ales are Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best, and Sharps Doom Bar. Supporting LocAle, ‘guest’ ales are from local breweries including Dunscar Bridge, Phoenix, Robinsons and Weetwood (to name but a few), as well as, from slightly further afield, Hawkshead, Moorhouses, Peerless and Saltaire.
The pub regularly offers customer favourites Exmoor Gold, Hobgoblin, Hobgoblin Gold, Pale Rider, and Wainwrights. The pub’s own ‘house-blend’, Joule’s Gold, brewed by Brightside, is definitely one to keep a look out for. (It’s worth pointing out that with the exception of Bank Holidays, the pub’s Monday Club offers real ales at reduced prices.)
In terms of the number of pints of real ale sold each week, the JP Joule is rarely out of the top 80 in Wetherspoons rankings (not bad going considering how many pubs there are in the chain!) The pub has achieved and maintained, Cask Marque status, and the real ale is well kept by the fully trained management team.
The pub offers 3 (bag-in-box, refrigerated) guest ciders (typically Black Dragon, Old Rosie, and Wyld Wood)
As a Wetherspoon pub, it has 2 popular annual real ale festivals, an annual cider festival, as well as holding several ‘Meet The Brewer’/’Battle of the Brewery’ events each year. The pub also organises several community events, such as book sales and regular raffles in aid of CLIC Sargent Charity. All of these events, together with the pub’s own monthly newsletter, are advertised on the Community noticeboard and CAMRA Corner, located on the ground floor at the rear of the pub.
Offering food from 8am-11pm, 7 days a week, and with extended licensing until 1am on Fridays and Saturdays, the JP Joule is child friendly, and popular with people of all ages.
The presentation will take place on Thursday 21st July 2016 - join us at 8pm for 9pm presentation.
