Dear Derby CAMRA members,

Dates for your Diary May/June/July/August

If I don't know what you want, how can I organise it?

Dates for Diary in JUNE 2017Thursday 15th June - Beer Day Britain 2017


     Yes it's Beer Day Britain again this year on June 15th.

A day to celebrate our 'Great National Drink' and of course the great pubs who serve it. Lots of different activities will take place in pubs and breweries, there  is an anthem to sing and a beer poem by yours truly.

There is also a national Cheers To Beer. All serious, proper beer drinkers should make their way to their local on this date, raise a glass around 7pm and say those magic words. England expects every drinker to do their duty on this special day. The Derby Beer King will attend THE BRUNSWICK and two of his other locals to support the cause, hope you can all join in, whatever pub you may be in. There is a great Beer Day Britain website with much more information.

                                               Cheers BK Les
