The Spring edition of CAMRA Angle , the quarterly magazine of the Sunderland and South Tyneside branch of CAMRA, has just been published. Copies are being distributed to real ale pubs throughout the area , and beyond. As usual , this is another full issue and well worth a read.
The forthcoming CAMRA AGM and the special resolutions regarding Revitilisation are explored, as well as pubco reform and a look at the CAMRA Beer Scoring system and the reasons why it is important to use it more.
There is a look at the branch pub/club of the year 2018 awards and recent announcement of the National Pub/Club of 2017. Also featured is the presentation of a cheque to Roker RNLI.
There is a write up about a pub crawl in Worcester, and a pub review - The Monument in Penshaw ( hence the front cover.) Another review, this time a book, looks at The Great North East Brewery Guide.
Now there are not many people I know that drink cider, perhaps because its not beer and not to everyones taste. I would urge you to read "Read Cider & Perry Taste Introduction" - while editing it to make it easy to read I learned a hell of a lot. Another unfamiliar drink in the North East is Mild so there is a brief look at the different styles.
A regular section is a news update on beer from the wood, pubs and breweries in the branch as well as Locale pubs and those that offer discounts.
Issue 51 is rounded off by a pub quiz.
Enjoy the read !!
