County CAMRA branches gathered at Gloucester Brewery’s tap, Tank on Wednesday 30th September to award Citra Gloucestershire Champion Beer for 2015 in both the Best Bitter category and Overall Winner for 2015.
Approximately once a month, there is an electronic newsletter from the Chair about things going on in the sub branch, and about our events. Due to the updated technology from CAMRA HQ we are now in a position to email all the members in our area for whom we have an address. If you would prefer not to receive this newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure you are not on the Gloucester list although you may still be contacted by HQ or County about important news and events.
The Tippler, our free County magazine is due to be in your local from this week. It is also available on-line for those of you who prefer to access that way. Usually we have our Gloucester events listed, but unfortunately that was not possible for the new editions so I have listed our coming events below.
