Introducing Peel Ale

Beer Matters, as the newsletter of Sheffield & District branch of CAMRA, has throughout its life so far – all 466 issues across over 40 years – included the town of Dronfield and the surrounding villages in its area of coverage. However Dronfield now has its own CAMRA branch with its own local group of active volunteers as well as an absolutely booming good beer scene.

Dronfield CAMRA will very soon be launching their very own quarterly magazine, Peel Ale. (For those that don’t get the pun, it is named after Dronfield’s Peel Monument) with coverage of pub, club and brewery news from the local area and information on what the branch is up to as well as interesting beer related articles and adverts from local businesses.

Once Peel Ale launches, it is anticpated that Beer Matters will only be distributed to certain key pubs in the Dronfield area with the cut in circulation in Dronfield allowing us enough copies to distribute to the growing number of real ale venues in Sheffield & District.
