Rainhill Beer Festival

Posted on Saturday, 09 November 2013 10:07

Friday night saw an excellent turnout of members at our branch social at the Rainhill Rotary Beer Festival. It was an excellent night in a very busy festival (early reports are that it is 25% up on last year). Well done to the Rotary Club for organising such an enjoyable event and well done to the people of Rainhill for backing it so enthusiastically. Lots of young people drinking real ale is great to see- and some more dodgy looking people as well.

New Real Ale Outlet

Posted on Tuesday, 05 November 2013 18:17

Duke Street is increasingly turning into a proper real ale street. The latest bar to join the real ale revolution in the town is the News Bar which is installing a hand pump to sell George Wright's Pipedream in response to the demand they have for their bottled beers.

SIBA Beer Festival Trip

Posted on Sunday, 27 October 2013 07:48

Another great day for St Helens CAMRA with well over 60 people coming on a very enjoyable trip to Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley. All the ales tried were excellent and enjoyed in in very good company. Many thanks to every one who came. The raffle on the coach raised £97 which we will now use to sponsor a barrel at the Rainhill Beer Festival in 7th - 9th November. Special thanks to Andy Evans and Daryl Arrowsmith for all their hard work organising the trip.
