- Campaigning Day 2018
Tuesday 16 October 2018
Cheers from North Devon branch members on their much anticipated annual campaigning day - highlighting the paucity of public transport to so many of our excellent pubs in more rural locations. This year's odyssey to the far west of the county took us to the Bell at Monkleigh, the Coach and Horses at Buckland Brewer, the Bell at Parkham, the Hoops at Horns Cross, the Old Smithy at Welcome, and the Coach and Horses at Horns Cross. Sincere thanks to the generous support of Country Life, Clearwater , and Timothy Taylor's breweries, plus of course the very warm hospitality provided by all our hosts. (Watch out for the full details in the Winter edition of Beer Tiz). PT
- RHS Rosemoor
Thursday 11 October 2018
Great Ale, Gin and music festival was held at RHS Rosemoor on the last weekend in Oct. It was a great success. Out of all the beers that were available. Golden Pig and Shore Break from Country life brewery sold first followed by Litehouse from Forge Brewery. The rest were quite evens. Well done Country Life Brewery who were asked by the events team at Rosemoor to take it onboard after years of it being run at a loss.
- Yelland Manor Brewery
Monday 1 October 2018
Delighted to find Yelland Manor Brewery open for business yesterday (Saturday) afternoon - where owner/brewer Lawrence Weatherston was serving some excellent pints of his real ale - Tarka Special. Good to talk to a real craftsman about his passion and pride in turning out genuine craft ale!
