Branch – Who We Are

Who we are

We’re a volunteer-led consumer not-for-profit organisation that enjoy good pubs in good company with great beer. We have over one thousand members in the north-east Worcestershire area who enjoy visiting pubs on a regular basis and care passionately about their pint. A map of our branch area can be found in the drop-down menu above.

We meet up once a month in different pubs across our branch area to talk about real ale and pubs. We run social trips to beer festivals, breweries, and of course, pub crawls! Our volunteers also organise the Redditch Winter Ale Festival and Bromsgrove Beer & Cider Festival. For a full list of our events, please visit our diary page.

In between sampling great beer and visiting pubs, we also campaign for consumer rights. We work with local MPs to lobby the government for fairer practices for pubs and campaign to axe the beer duty escalator. We also judge beers and pubs for various competitions; and contribute to CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide; as well as a quarterly magazine called Pint Taken; which is distributed to pubs across Worcestershire.
