It’s crisis time for our pubs, clubs and breweries.

Now that the Government has announced that pubs can start to re-open from the 4th July we need to be prepared and ready.

We have just launched a new Friendly Face campaign. The aim of this campaign is to ensure our pubs/clubs are assigned a CAMRA member representative to promote a more fruitful and understanding relationship between CAMRA and publicans, to our mutual benefit. If you are a member of the branch and would like to be involved please visit the members area.

We still encourage everyone to use these take-away and/or delivery services safely along the lines that the Government have suggested, even when pubs are starting to re-open. You can find details of your local pub on the CAMRA website whatpub.com.

Some pubs in our branch that are offering take-away services include –

We will try and keep this list as up-to date as possible as we hear of more pubs taking on the initiative. If you know of a pub that isn’t listed please let us know.

One other way to help pubs over what will be a temporary, but long, cash flow crisis is to pay a little now and support the pubs they love in return for pints or meals in the future. See crowdfunder.co.uk/pay-it-forward.

Our local breweries are also offering off-sales either on a collect basis or delivered to the customer’s door. See below for a list of links to brewery contact pages. Please contact the brewery to confirm arrangements before visiting.

Continue to support your local pubs and breweries through this difficult time. Together we can get through this crisis.

Petition to cut beer duty

South Herts CAMRA is supporting a petition calling for the Government to cut beer duty for at least 12 months, so pubs can survive after the current crisis.

Pubs will need help to rebuild their business. Cutting beer duty for at least a year will ensure the price of a pint can be dropped which in turn will help get more people back to the pub.
