For Immediate Release
Brewhouse & Kitchen celebrates its latest opening by sponsoring CAMRA's Members' Weekend
Brewhouse & Kitchen, the UK's largest independent brewpub group, is set to open its latest outlet in Bournemouth, and will be the lead sponsor for the Campaign for Real Ale's (CAMRA) Members' Weekend, AGM and Conference, taking place at the Bournemouth International Centre from the 7-9th April.
The weekend event will see over a thousand beer lovers and pub-goers descend to Bournemouth, where they will discuss CAMRA's campaigning future, visit local pubs, and sample new and emerging micro pubs, which are on the increase in the area.
The sponsorship coincides with Brewhouse & Kitchen celebrating the opening of their 17th outlet in Bournemouth on the 3rd April. To celebrate, CAMRA members can look forward to a 20% discount in all Brewhouse & Kitchen brewpubs during the month of April. CAMRA members attending the weekend are invited to a welcome event at the newest Brewhouse & Kitchen in Bournemouth, and the pub chain will be sponsoring glasses and providing some fantastic beers to sample over the weekend.
Nigel Jones, Chair of CAMRA's Local Organising Committee says: "It's great to be working with Brewhouse & Kitchen this year. CAMRA members can look forward to sampling some of their fantastic locally brewed real ales and enjoy the additional discounts over the month of April."
Brewhouse & Kitchen says: "The beer market is experiencing a phenomenal period of change and we are living and working in exciting times if you love brewing, selling and drinking great beer. CAMRA have been an important part of our journey and we are delighted to be the headline sponsor for the 2017 CAMRA AGM."
Established in 1971, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has grown into an independent, voluntary organisation of over 185,000 members campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights.
Key issues include protecting pub closures, keeping the lid on the price of a pint and ensuring fair competition in the beer and pubs market. CAMRA supports well-run pubs as centres of community life that play a critical social role in UK culture.
Pre-registration for the event closes on Friday 17th March. You can find out more at camraagm.org.uk.
