2018 Topic for the year:- More talks less Competitions

Feedback from members with regard to the meetings was that less focus should be on competitions and more on general discussions of beers and topics. The committee will follow up on these suggestions.



Currently we are looking to have six meetings during 2018, venues chosen so far are The Junction Castleford, The Sportman Huddesfield, The Jolly sailor Macclesfield, the University Arms Sheffield, The pump Room Halifax and the Doncaster Brewery and Tap. Together with the joint Competition with Wishbone Brewery. dates have been agreed but what happens when yet to be sorted. Have your say on the forum.
