Who Love Beer aka BAD Ladies
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 once every couple of months through the year to
enjoy real ale and real cider. We are interested in organising beer
and cider 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.
if you are one of the 22% of female members in Bristol and District (BAD)
CAMRA, enjoy beer and great company, and like the look of our programme
please join us.
The BAD Ladies programme of events for 2019 are listed below.
Events take place on Saturday afternoons. Apart from the special
events where it is specified, there is no need to book. Just come
along. Pub explorer trips are always free. To book a place on one of the
special events please contact Bianca on 0772 302 0223.
