So, this month our winner is the Broadfield Ale House on Abbeydale Road.
Now this place was a game changer when it reopened a few years back, having been a boozer since 1896 (I think that makes it an antique , Bargain Hunters), and it's still going from strength to strength.

Pride of the True North portfolio, The Broady attracts that sought after 'eclectic clientele' ranging from young 'on the Edge' families to the elder gent bobbing in most days for a pint and a peruse of the 'paper. Sure, cocktails, back bar and food are all catered for extremely well here but it's the beer that we're all about, yeah?
TN Bar staff are knowledgeable and welcoming with ale available in abundance with a fair spilt between cask and (recently expanded)keg. The more adventurous tackle is, of course, more likely to be available on the latter. A recent visit yielded some Anarchy and Evil Twin but, the big surprise was True North's new NE IPA 'Dynamo', fruit shake drinkable at 8.8%; a massive step forward for the team on Eldon Street. Good work. And there's always the excellent Picture House Social and Hop Hideout to visit nearby too.

Over the past year or so, the beer herein has continued to strive to satisfy the geeky fusspots amongst us and so, go there; you'll not be disappointed!
