Wakefield CAMRA Homepage                                                                      Which Pubs are in the Scheme

Based on the highly successful Nottingham scheme which grew out of the purchase by Greene-King and closure of Nottingham's Hardys & Hansons Brewery, with the brewing of H & H beers transferred to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, LocAle is spreading like wildfire across the country. It has been welcomed by independent brewers, publicans and the drinking public who are ever more conscious of the sense of reducing "beer miles".

The Wakefield scheme encourages landlords to endeavour to dedicate at least one pump to beers brewed no more than twenty miles away. This CAMRA branch will support landlords with point-of-sale material and an entry in a LocAle pubs directory on this local CAMRA web-site. Breweries who would find themselves nominated for all our pubs include all breweries in our district, and typically for the city centre, breweries as far away as Leeds, Great Heck and much of Kirklees, whilst, for example, pubs in the East would be able to count in Brown Cow. The chart below indicates in orange which breweries are within the distance for each town/village in the Wakefield District. Beers fulfilling the distance criterion for the Wakefield LocAle Scheme were marked as such at the 2009 Wakefield Beer Festival

The Wakefield LocAle Scheme was officially launched early in February 2010 with the district pubs belonging to Ossett Brewery and H B Clark plus the Good Beer Guide listed pubs which were in a position to participate. Additional LocAle participants are being added as quickly as we can manage. All will be featured in our on-line LocAle Guide 

Please note that no pecuniary liability can be accepted by Wakefield CAMRA in connection with the scheme, although it does seek to be inclusive, and any errors or omissions will gladly be remedied. Bradfield Brewery is available to all local pubs except the far North-East of our area! Thorne and Brass Monkey beers are available to pubs in the East and West respectively.

 TOWN/VILLAGE NAMES ARE SHOWN AT THE SIDE AND BREWERY NAMES RUN ACROSS THE TOP: YELLOW MEANS YES! EXPLANATORY NOTES:

  1. Distances are calculated "as the crow flies" and twenty miles is taken as any distance under 21 miles.
  2. "Leeds" may be applied to any brewery near the City Centre but not surrounding towns in the Leeds Metropolitan Area, so encompassing not only Leeds Brewery but also Burley Street, Sunbeam and Northern Monk.
  3. Kelham Island may also be applied to any nearby Sheffield brewery.
  4. This information is supplied without warranty, but if subject to errors and omissions these will be corrected where found to be valid.
  5. Bob's Brewing Co and Ossett are within spitting distance of oneanother. Revolutions is now on-stream at Whitwood.
  6. Some smaller brewers do not normally supply outside establishments but negotiation may be possible for beer festivals.
  7. Saltaire at Shipley and Milltown at Minsbridge also qualify as LocAle, as far as Central Wakefield, and will be added to the table.
  8. Two Roses at Darton and Geeves at Stairfoot qualify throughout the Wakefield District, and any other new breweries in the Barnsley area should be LocAles in much or all of the Wakefield District
  9. Hand-drawn Monkey and Magic Rock are located close enough to Mallinson's
  10. Beers from these new breweries qualify in large parts of our district : Ridgeside at Meanwood, Leeds, WharfeBank at Pool-in-Wharfedale, Caphouse at Batley and  Kirkstall Brewery. The new Imperial Brewery is in Mexborough so is listed with Concertina.
