Vintage Inns searches for top pub poets

The Vintage Inns Golden Ale festival launched 13 July and runs throughout August.  Featured ales include Young's Kew Gold, Black Sheep Golden Sheep, Brakspear Oxford Gold, Adnams Explorer, Brains SA Gold and Everards Sunchaser.

To celebrate, Vintage Inns is inviting people across the UK to pick up their pens and write pub poetry.  Customers from across 23 regions are being invited to enter the competition, with submissions from regional finalists going through to an online vote, before one national winner is crowned. 

To tie in with Young's Kew Gold featuring in the festival and to celebrate the 250-year celebrations of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, the national winner of the poetry competition will win a VIP weekend for four people in London and a visit to Kew Gardens.

Full details regarding the competition, entry details and Vintage Inns collection guides can be found at http://www.vintageinn.co.uk/offer/pubpoet .  The deadline for entry is Friday 31 July.
