Welcome to the CAMRA’s Arun & Adur Branch new look web-site. It is still very much “work in progress” but will soon be a 'one-stop-shop' for information and news about pubs, real ale and branch events (socials, meetings and the Worthing Beer Festival).
Congratulations to the Nick & Sarah Allen and Sam (pictured) from Greyhound Brewery, West Chiltington for winning Overall Beer of the Worthing Festival with Amber Eyes.
The Black Horse in Findon Village and the Olde House at Home in Broadwater have both re-opened after short closures. We wish them both the best of luck.
The 20th Arun And Adur beer festival was held on 14th -15th October at the Assembly Hall in Stoke Abbott Road, Worthing.
The move to the Assembly Hall allowed us to increase the capacity, number of beers and as requested in feedback, extra tables and seating.
Among the 2000 festival goers who managed to consume more than 7800 pints, were 133 new members who joined CAMRA. Planning for next year is already under way.
The Arun & Adur branch area covers the area between the rivers Arun (in the west) and Adur (in the east) and the A272 (in the north), with the sea being the southern boundary (map). This means that Arundel, Lancing, Littlehampton, Petworth, Pulborough, Steyning, Storrington, Worthing and the many villages, all form part of the branch. There are nearly 200 pubs and bars in our branch area and over 155 serve real ale, and there are over 800 branch members.
Come to one of our meetings or socials and see how you can help promote real ale. All members are welcome.
If you would like to join the the Arun & Adur Branch email group all you need to do is subscribe. This is a group of, mainly, local members who are alerting others to pub and real ale information - as it happens - in the local area.
