The week ahead: Branch Meeting & November Social

It’s been a busy week for the campaign with the Beer Tax Escalator debate hitting the house of Commons, and the Spring Beer Festival starting to take shape.

No rest for the wicked though, as this coming week sees both our November Branch Meeting (Wednesday 7th November) at the National Brewery Centre’s Academia room (ask at the Bar), and also our November Social on Friday November 9th!

For this month’s social on Friday we’ll be heading up to Derby (please make your own way using public transport), to do a bit of a walking tour of some of Derby’s best pubs. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to find some gems. We’re meeting at the Alexandra (near to the station) around 7:30pm.

Hope to see you there!
