Thanks to Ian Batho for hosting our event. Thanks also to Caroline and Les of Two Cocks Brewery who provided a growler of 1643 Leveller for donations to the micropub’s chosen charity – Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
The opportunity to discuss beer and brewing with brewers or cider and perry making with cidermakers has benefited visitors to recent CAMRA events held in Newbury.
Local brewers Kevin Brady (Indigenous) and Richard Marshall (Hermitage) were at the King Charles Tavern for the launch of CAMRA’s 2019 Good Beer Guide (GBG) on 25 September.
Branch Chairman, Andy Pinkard, explained that West Berkshire has only 11 GBG entries despite a revival in the quality of our real ale pubs. Beer scores, recorded by CAMRA members, are a vital part of the GBG selection process. Andy said ‘Cask ale is a live product. You have to look after it.
