Branch Magazine of the Year 2023!

Pints West is officially the best CAMRA branch magazine, having been awarded first place in the 2023 competition at the CAMRA Members’ Weekend in Sheffield at the end of April. Regular readers will know that this is not the first time that the Pints West team of volunteer writers, led by editor Steve Plumridge, has been recognised for the quality and mix of articles covering Bristol, Bath and districts’ pub and brewery news and CAMRA’s campaigns locally and nationally. This is Pints West’s sixth overall win since 2002 (with several other awards for ‘most improved’, ‘highly commended’ and ‘runner-up’ since 2001).

There are over 200 CAMRA branches, most of which publish magazines (find links online to them HERE), and competition is strong.


Congratulations to all the volunteer researchers, writers and photographers who make Pints West such an engaging read, and to Steve for his editing and design skills. Pints West can be found in hundreds of pubs and other outlets in the branch area thanks to the many volunteers who give up their time to collect and distribute it; copies also find their way to pubs and beer festivals further afield, and to postal subscribers all over the country. 

Pints West has to be self-financing, so particular thanks go to all our advertisers over the years, and especially for those who have supported us post-pandemic, without whom Pints West could not be published. Getting the word out is key, so we are particularly grateful to the pubs that act as distribution hubs: the Cornubia and Lime Kiln in central Bristol, the Parish Pump in Worle near Weston-super-Mare, and the Royal Oak in Twerton, Bath.
