Booze News | Print |

'Booze News' is Wigan CAMRA's membership newsletter.

It is produced on a monthly-basis and is circulated, via e-mail, to all Wigan CAMRA Branch members. Typically, 'Booze News' will highlight local events (branch meetings and socials) and beer festivals from near and far. Another important aspect of 'Booze News' is that it keeps local members informed of changes in local pubs and breweries.
