A CLUB has won an award for the quality of its beers.

Marsh Liberal Club was named winner of the Mild Club of the Year 2012.

The accolade was handed out by Huddersfield branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

Taylor’s Golden Best – a true Pennine light mild – is always available at the New Hey Road club. Guest milds are occasionally on sale too.

The club also offers two other beers from Taylor’s and two further guest beers.

Chris Thorpe took over as steward in December 2011.

CAMRA said that he is clearly maintaining the high standards set by his predecessors.
