Several pubs in the Amber Valley area are to vie for the title of best ale stockist in the borough this month.
A real ale trail is set to run from Saturday, December 15 until January 12 in 30 participating pubs.
Punters will be able to go into each of the venues in which a Winter Ale Trail poster is displayed and vote for their favourite pubs and beers via text.
The event, being organised by the Amber Valley Campaign for Real Ales (CAMRA) is set to provide venues in the area, which will include The Beehive in Ripley, The Codnor Inn and The Steampacket, Swanwick, with a welcome Christmas boost according to CAMRA.
Winners will receive certificates form the organisation.
