Shortlist's Pints + Pistachios Awards Returns
Salute your boozer in our annual prize-giving
12 Jun 2013
You no doubt have a favourite film, album and book. Maybe even a favourite pair of socks or a special mug. But a pub can be harder to narrow down. The food, the drink, the décor, the atmosphere; all must be just right to create the perfect ale house.
With that in mind, we want you to decide on your favourite, and then cast your vote; the establishment with the most votes will be crowned ShortList's Pub Of The Year, taking the trophy from last year's winner, Manchester's Oast House.
Simply visit shortlist.com/pints where you will find a list of the 30 best pubs that have been featured in our Pints & Pistachios column. And to give you an extra nudge, one lucky voter will be chosen at random to brew their very own beer with Meantime.
The winning pub will not only receive a framed certificate from us. Oh no. We are working with Meantime on a limited-edition beer (see right) called ShortList Fool's Gold, two barrels of which will be given to the victor to put on tap. The victor will be announced on 31 July at our Winner's Party at Meantime's Old Brewery in Greenwich.
Feeling thirsty? You'll have the chance to try our beer from 3-4 August at the Meantime Craft Beer Festival, also at The Old Brewery. Once there, you can try Mr Hyde's Union Lager and other craft beers from across the world.
Now, excuse us while we get back to stirring the mash.
