Sussex Drinker, Autumn 2020

The Autumn 2020 edition of the Sussex Drinker is now out, and you can download it here. This is an online-only edition; you will not be able to find a print copy in pubs.

Sussex Drinker, Autumn 2020

This is a special edition that provides details of many Sussex pubs that have reopened, and of Sussex breweries that have recommenced brewing.

We estimate that over 74% of all Sussex pubs have reopened, but many with restrictions; this edition will show how to find details of the restrictions.

(There was no Summer 2020 edition of the Sussex Drinker.)

Yapton Beerex 2020 — CANCELLED

Due to the coronavirus situation, all CAMRA beer festivals, including Yapton Beerex 2020, are cancelled until at least the end of June.

If you have already bought tickets, please hold on to them. We’ll be publishing information on refunds or validity at future Yapton Beerexes once we’ve worked out the best way to handle this.

UPDATE — April 4:

All cheques received in the post should have been returned by now. Those who sent cash should receive their refunds shortly.

If you bought your tickets from a pub, hang tight — we need to wait for the pubs to reopen before we can sort out refunds for these tickets. We’ll update further once we have a solution in place.

All branch meetings cancelled until further notice

As you may have noticed, meetings for the rest of March have been cancelled. We’re not sure when they’ll resume at present, but it seems likely that the April diary will be off as well.

Once we’re able to go to the pub again, the new diary will appear here.
