A HALESOWEN micro-pub has scooped an accolade from The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The Crafty Pint on Wassell Road has been named Stourbridge & Halesowen CAMRA's runner-up pub of the year.

Branch chairman, Tim Cadwell, presented the award to bar associates Jakob Embrey & Evie Luff, who accepted it on behalf of owner, Andy Davies, on Wednesday June 8.

CAMRA said over the year the pub has consistently served top-quality real ales from a variety of local and other breweries from around the country.

Andy Davies established the Crafty Pint in 2016 and later extended the bar into the adjoining shop unit.

Just a month ago, the bar was further extended into the former shop unit on the opposite side, making it three times as large as the original pub.

But it’s still a 'micro-pub', offering good beer, tasty cobs and bar snacks, with a friendly community spirit.

Next month, the local CAMRA branch hopes to present the third prize in its 'Pub-of-the-Year' competition to another Halesowen pub, the King Edward VII in Stourbridge Road.

Press Officer, Steve Pratt said, “It’s great to support our local pubs and recognise our award-winning pubs which consistently serve good quality real ale throughout the year.

"Long may they prosper!”

CAMRA is continuing its 'Summer of Pub' campaign which encourages people to support their local pubs after a difficult two years.
