Welcome To Our Website

Our branch visits pubs (and beer festivals) often. There's lots of choice as we cover such a large area, 313 pubs at the last count! However, we are trying (as part of the National Campaign) to draw attention to Quality - the Quality of the Pubs, and the Quality of the Beer. Why not support your local Branch by joining us at our regular weekly Social Events.

32nd Chappel Beer Festival

Everyone's favourite event held in a railway station, Chappel Beer Festival is back on Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th September. It's organised by the Essex branches of CAMRA, to raise funds for the East Anglian Railway Museum. There's over 400 ales, ciders, perrys and international beers. Plus a wide selection of food, and music most evenings. The address is Chappel & Wakes Colne Station, CO6 2DS. Here is a link to the official website.
