Huge thanks to Mark at Dead Parrot Brewing Company for giving us a tour of his brewery back in October. The visit was organised to welcome new branch members who joined CAMRA during our recent festival and was well attended. The free beer and pork pies were very much appreciated! The Thornbridge Brewery tap room now has extended opening hours: 12-6 Wednesday and Thursday, 12-8 Friday and Saturday. Brewery Socials for December will take place on Wednesday 12 and Saturday 15. Little Critters have expanded their core range with the addition of Sultanas of Swing chocolate and raisin stout (6.0%) – this was previously part of the Incubator series.
