Our next committee meeting will take place on Tuesday March 25 at The Queens Head in Downe Village at 7.30pm. Members are also invited to attend a short social beforehand at The George and Dragon starting at 6.30pm. The two pubs are next to each other.Non-committee members are always welcome to attend committee meetings.
The next social event is on Wednesday March 12 when we have a branch visit to the 30th London Drinker beer and cider beer festival. This takes place at the Camden Centre, near St Pancras station. Branch members are invited to meet from 7.30pm onwards.
The next event within our borough will be held on Wednesday March 19th when we have a social evening in Bromley Common, again starting at 19.30. The first pub we visit will be The Bird in Hand, and we will continue from there to the The Two Doves.
Our branch diary includes more information about the events mentioned above including the other pubs we will visit on the above crawl. It also includes information about all of our events up to the end of May.
Since the last update, I can confirm that real ale is now available at O’Neills in East Street, Bromley North. Only a single ale will normally be available - on our visit it was Purity UBU Premium Ale - but I understand this will vary.
We haven’t had as many beer scores submitted this year as we had at this time last year. These scores are really important to us and are analysed in depth when we have to choose the branch entries for the Good Beer Guide. There are number of ways to submit scores, including the use of the beer scores form on this page. Members can also submit their scores using Whatpub. If you would prefer to use pen and paper, there is a form available in the downloads section. The completed form can be handed to any committee member.
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.
