The Winter 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.
This issue has three, what I think are unique articles in their own right :-
Desert Island Breweries, A Mystery Trip and the tale of beer mat that travelled around Europe.
Being its Xmas, there are 3 timely book reviews, including the Good Beer Guide.
Two articles revisit old haunts ( Ive never understood what that means - Ed) . Kent Micropubs and Middesbrough Micropubs ( must do the latter sometime ! - Ed again)
If any one gets confused about how the Pub of the Year is chosen, then this issue is for you. There is also a report about our recent beer festival.
A regular section is a news update on beer from the wood, branch and regional pubs and breweries in the branch as well as Locale pubs and those that offer discounts. Issue 54 is rounded off by the regular pub quiz.
Enjoy the read !!
