We have some exciting news: Brentwood Best4.2% ABV is officially East Anglia's top Best Bitter. The announcement was made at the recent Colchester Winter Beer Festival where CAMRA volunteers completed regional judging in the Champion Beer of Britain competition, awarding Brentwood Best the Gold Award in the Best Bitter category.
It means Brentwood Best will automatically go through to one of the World's most prestigious beer competitions, CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain. The national final will be judged and announced at the Great British Beer Festival at Olympia in August. Wish us luck.

Pub of the Month
Ye Olde Smack, Leigh on Sea
In its distant past Ye Olde Smack in Leigh on Sea was a hive of smuggling activity. Reputedly, tunnels running underneath the pub aided smugglers by concealing movement of contraband, arriving in secrecy via the estuary. Today this historic, traditional Great British pub remains a sociable, community hub and provides a year-round, warm welcome to everyone - families, fishermen, day trippers and locals.
“This pub is the beating heart of Old Leigh. It’s always at the centre of whatever’s going on.
“Old Leigh is a great place for a day out. The pub is less than ten minutes’ walk from the train station. There’s lots of history. The cockle sheds, our heritage centre and the seafront, along which you can walk all the way into Southend,” said Manager Maz Handy.
The house beer, Ye Olde Smack Ale 3.7% ABV, is brewed to the pub’s specifications at Brentwood Brewery. A Greene King pub, Ye Olde Smack offers beer drinkers plenty of choice. There are up to eight traditional, real ales on tap.
Situated on Old Leigh’s cobbled High Street, directly on the waterfront, the pub boasts beautiful, ever-changing views of the estuary which can be enjoyed from the pub’s rear terrace or on cold, inclement days, from behind glass and the comfort of indoors.
