Great British Beer Festival at Your Local

The CAMRA ďGreat British Beer Festival at Your LocalĒ runs from Friday 30 July to Sunday 8 August. This is an initiative to promote pub going and many pubs have signed up to put on events such as stocking a guest beer or cider or even running a beer festival. You can search to see what is happening local to you by going to New events are still being added so itís worth continuing to check over the course of next week. Please try to support the pubs that are taking part and encourage your local to join in and register if they havenít already.

As CAMRA branches are allowed to start holding face to face gatherings again, Bristol & District has arranged a few social events for next week during the Great British Beer Festival at Your Local. Doubtless some people will have concerns about COVID-19 and we have tried to focus on pubs with outdoor drinking areas to keep things as well ventilated as possible. As ever please get fully vaccinated and follow the official guidance on testing and isolation. Letís all make sure to follow any requests or policies that individual pubs may have decided to apply to keep staff, customers and indeed their business safe. No one wants to see pubs closing again due to COVID infections or, worse still for pubs and the hospitality industry in general, another national lockdown.
