Locale is a fairly new project from CAMRA which encourages pubs to stock at least some ales from local breweries, and therefore encourages our regulars to drink them!
The idea behind this is that many smaller breweries have been suffering, as we all have, through this recession and need as much support as possible. And to be honest the smaller breweries often produce the best ale as they really care about their products, they're not just churning out massive amounts of the same stuff week in, week out.
Also there are environmental benefits, less petrol is used to distribute the barrels as they are delivered within a small radius from the brewery.
The Grapes supports the Locale initiative, and is currently working alongside the Liverpool Organic Brewery to bring you some of the best local ales available.
