Branch publications

Our branch produces its own publications keeping drinkers informed about the real ale scene within the branch area:

Pints of View

The latest issue (number 68, Winter 2016) of our branch magazine Pints of View is now available in real ale pubs throughout the branch area, and can also be downloaded in PDF format here (28.3 MB). Erratum: the Ferry Brewery launch event mentioned on p24 did not take place at the Stockbridge Tap. Apologies for the confusion.

The following back issues of Pints of View are still available (PDF format):
