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 next festival planning meeting will be held at The Shortlands Tavern on August 5th, starting at 7pm
Our next social event will be a daytime visit to the Canterbury beer festival on Friday 18th July. Members will be travelling on the 10.09 train from Bromley South. If you are interested in sharing a groupsave ticket with other members, please arrive 20 minutes early so that this can be arranged.
The next event within our own borough will be a social evening on July 21st in the Chatterton Village/Petts Wood area. This will start at 19.00 at The Chatterton, which will be the branch’s first visit to that pub. It will continue to Petts Wood, using the high-frequency 208 bus route.
Our next committee meeting will take place on Tuesday July 29th at The Greyhound in Keston starting at 7.30pm. The meeting will be held in the summer house in the garden. 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 July. August information will hopefully be added by the end of June.
There are also some non-CAMRA events coming up that members may be interested in:
The Orpington Liberal Club are having a “meet the brewer” evening with The Hastings Brewery on Wednesday July 16th. This small brewery is attracting a growing reputation for its tasty vegan beers, of which four will be available on the night. Because finings cannot be used in the brewing process for vegan beers, some beers may be hazy, but the taste will not be affected.
Tickets are also now available for the club’s beer festival on August 22nd and 23rd (Fri and Sat of the Bank Holiday weekend). Although entry to the festival is effectively free, the club need to sell tickets in order to ensure that numbers are controlled. So the tickets cost £5.40, but include tokens for two pints of beer. Early purchase is recommended, since recent festivals have sold out. Additional beers will all cost £2.70. More details, including a beer list here.
If you have any 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.
