Bromley CAMRA are pleased to announce that we will be holding the first Eden Park beer festival at Club Langley from September 18 to 20. We are currently welcoming volunteer applications. Please click on the beer festival tab to volunteer online, or if you require more information. The festival tab will be updated with the latest news until it takes place. The final festival planning meeting will be held at Club Langley on August 5th, starting at 7pm. The festival beer list is now available - see the festival tab.
The next social event will be crawl on of Bromley North on Thursday August 28th, starting at The Compass at 6.45 and continuing to several other pubs in the near vicinity, including the newly refurbished Freelands Tavern. No bus travel will be needed between any of the pubs. And it’s easy to get to back to Bromley afterwards, using either the train from Grove Park or the high-frequency 261 bus route afterwards which goes past the pub.
Our next committee meeting will take place on Tuesday August 26th at The Bickley in Chislehurst starting at 7.30pm. Non-committee members are always welcome to attend committee meetings.
Our branch diary includes more information about the events mentioned above and now lists all of our events up to the end of September. Details for October and November are currently being finalised.
There is also some non-CAMRA news coming up that members may be interested in:
The Railway Tavern at Bromley North briefly opened last week, but has now closed again. More details as I get them. The operators - Antic - have also acquired the Goldsmiths Arms in Penge, but this is also closed for refurbishment at present.
Chislehurst Wines has reopened after a short closure for refurbishment. The store intend to offer an increased range of UK and foreign bottled beers, including some bottle-conditioned ones. They are inviting comments on their range. Future plans include a “click and collect” service, and they are also considering selling draught real ale to take away. The store is located diagonally opposite The Bickley.
If you have any suggestions for events that could be included on these pages, or questions about forthcoming events, or anything else concerning the branch or this website let us know. Please also feel free to send in your comments on any pubs in the Borough of Bromley at any time. If you are not in CAMRA but would like to join, click here.
