Pub & Brewery News - September 2020

Monday 7 September 2020

Pub News

As you will understand, the Government enforced the period of Lockdown from 20th March until Saturday 4th July 2020 for the Covid-19 pandemic. We have tried to maintain a list of those pubs which we know have reopened following the enforced closure – please see Pubs Known To Have Reopened Following Lockdown, where we have over 180 pubs listed. Due to the nature of this rapidly-changing situation, we are unable to list what each pub is doing, but have listed their website and/or social media link, where available. Please contact the pub directly, and not Plymouth CAMRA!

To see the most up to date list of pubs that have, or are due to, reopen, please click on this link to WHAT PUB Tick the ONLY SHOW VENUES WITH INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19 TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENTS check box, and then type the place name, such as Plymouth or Tavistock, in the Search Box. Once the page has refreshed, un-check the filter box "Only Show Pubs and Clubs" to list all venues.

Pub Beer Festivals

Obviously, there are no known pub or other beer festivals at this time.

Brewery News

Most brewers in the region have recommenced brewing beer again, and some are still offering a takeaway or collection service direct. Some also offer online postal deliveries. Please click on this link to find a brewery near you - PULLING TOGETHER To buy beer directly from a brewery, please click here - BREW 2 YOU, , and follow the on screen prompts.

Beer Scoring

CAMRA members can still beer score if they are willing and able to do so. This can be done whilst in the pub, using a mobile phone/tablet, by signing in to What Pub using their membership number and password. Since the pubs reopened, we have received 211 beer scores, for 40 different pubs, submitted by 19 individual members – Thank You very much!

During this difficult period of time, we would like to wish everyone the very best of health and, please – Stay Safe!
