Ladies Who Love Beer

If you are a lady who loves beer then you might be interested in joining in with our activities.  We are a group of CAMRA women who enjoy getting together for a few hours mostly on Saturday afternoons once every couple of months or so through the year to enjoy real ale and real cider.  We are interested in organising beer tasting, beer brewing, and pub trips.  We agreed that our pub trips would include places that served real cider as well as real ale, and that we wouldn’t visit more than 3 pubs over an afternoon.

So if you are one of the 22% of female members in Bristol and District (BAD) CAMRA, and like the look of our programme feel free to come along.

Please contact with any queries.

The programme of events this year is as follows:

Wednesday March 8th. Celebrate International Women’s Day with a LADIES BREW DAY.  Celebrate women and women’s brewing skills by taking part in a free brew day with Brewhouse and Kitchen in Cotham.  Come for the whole day or pop in and out.  Starting at 10:00 and finishing by about 16:30.  This will be a hand’s on brewing experience so think about suitable clothing. There will be periods of down time (during the boil etc) so we’ll have the chance to be social. There will be some tasters provided but be prepared to purchase any further beer and food.  Places are limited to just 12 on a first-come, first-served basis.  To secure your place please contact
