Pints West is the popular and award winning magazine of the Bristol & District branch of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale and includes Weston-super-Mare and also a section on the Bath & Borders CAMARA branch. Produced every quarter, 10,000 copies are normally printed and distributed to local pubs where they are eagerly received, read and shared by pub goers.
Due to the lockdown restrictions it is not currently viable to print and distribute physical copies of Pints West to pubs. However, rather than give up or just release a slim COVID-19 update, unpaid CAMRA volunteers have produced a full size Summer edition of Pints West available completely free online – just click on http://www.camrabristol.org.uk/PW126.pdf to view it.
Bristol & District Branch Chair Richard Brooks said “ Pints West is a popular read and we know that many thousands of pub goers look forward to getting their hands on a copy each quarter. This Summer edition is the first one we have ever released exclusively online and I think the editor and contributors have really knocked it out of the park. It’s a bumper 48 page edition packed full of beer, pub and brewery related articles that show there is plenty going on in the local scene despite the tough challenges currently faced.
