Not getting any (emails)?

If you think that we have forgotten you, it may be that you ticked the box for 'no emails' on your application form. Once you tick that, we can't legally send you out any emails, including those from the Branch, about trips and meetings etc. We want you to feel part of the Branch so to change this, sign in to the main CAMRA website (using you membership number and password) and you can then change your preferences. Of course, you don't have to but you may be missing out!

Notification of Branch AGM 2021
The Furness Branch A.G.M. will be held at the Ulverston Brewing Co. premises at 7pm on 4th October. Let us know if you intend to come as the venue has limited space.

Cask Ale Week 23rd Sept. to 3rd Oct. 2021
Why not pop along and support your local to sample some of the cask ales on offer, particularly from our local brewers? Of course you can do this anytime but this national (and local) promotion is an even better excuse, isn’t it?

InnQuirer - Branch Magazine Update

Currently, the paper issue of InnQuirer is suspended as is the downloadable .pdf version (since that is actually an export of the printed version!) but there is an online version Online InnQuirer which is a start! More information about the situation is available on the InnQuirer - Branch Magazine menu option.

Coronavirus - Latest information

Monday 6th September 2021

Numbers are returning to the pubs and although there are shortages because of delivery issues, there is still a decent selection of beers out there.
Remember that although restrictions have been scrapped officially, the virus is still out there so please think of those who are still concerned or are vulnerable. Masks are worn to reduce transmission and not really to protect so we still need to be careful, particularly when in closed spaces.

Staff at the pubs and breweries have had a difficult time during the past year and a half so please be patient - they are doing their best in what is not yet a full return to 'normal'!

CAMRA meetings have returned (with care) so check out the Branch Diary to see when the next one is (the first one will be/was on September 6th).

As you know by now, The 2021 Ulverston Beer Festival has been cancelled, unfortunately. Well, not so much cancelled as not got off the ground at all. Now we are looking forward to 2022 - let's hope things are really back to normal then!

Please have a look around the website - we hope you like what you see and that you enjoy our wonderful area, its amazing choice of top quality breweries and its friendly local pubs.
Obviously in the current situation, things are not running as they were but we are all still here monitoring the situation and we will be back once everything calms down.
Even in the current pandemic, CAMRA is still keeping working for you all, members, pubs and breweries so even if you are not already a CAMRA member, why not think about joining and enjoy all the benefits that membership brings (and there are more than you think) and at the same time, help CAMRA keep campaigning for us? Find out more. You can always give membership as a gift!
