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 pub quiz. 

Enjoy the read !!
