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.

Pub of the Year 2019: the Hornet Alehouse, Chichester

Congratulations to the Hornet Alehouse in Chichester on being voted our Pub of the Year for 2019.

The Hornet Alehouse is a new entry to Chichester’s beer scene, but it’s made a strong start, with four or more real ales, four real ciders, and four craft kegs — not to mention a good range of bottles and cans to drink in or take away.

If that’s not enough, there are regular “Meet the Brewer” events, and a “100 Club” — drink 100 different beers (not in the same session!) and get a T-shirt and discounts.
