LAGRAD (Edinburgh)

Enjoy a pint of Stonewall? Fancy a Bear Ass? Would you go to a pub for a Blow Job? Is a march the second thing you think of when someone mentions London Pride?

Formerly known as Diverse Drinkers, we are the Edinburgh group of the Lesbian and Gay Real Ale Drinkers, CAMRA's Task Group for LGBT real ale and cider fans. Regular socials take place on the first Monday of the month at the The Regent, 2 Montrose Terrace, from around 9pm. The pub, which is in the 2008 Good Beer Guide (also in 2006 and 2007 GBG), serves four real ales, typically Caledonian Deuchars IPA, and three regularly changing guest ales. Pub crawls, trips to beer festivals and possibly even brewery visits are planned.

With so few LGBT pubs selling Real Ale, campaigning might well be within our remit - input is especially welcomed at the moment. Contact John to discuss the matter over a pint or two. Mine's a Ginger Minge.
