The CAMRA's National Beer Scoring System (NBSS) has been upgraded and is now fully integrated with whatpub.com, making finding a pub and scoring your beers much easier. Beer scoring is only available to CAMRA members. To start scoring please visit the WhatPub web site and follow the Members Login link, then search for the pub you have visited. Beer scoring our branch area pubs enables us to better decide which pubs get selected into the next issue of the Good Beer Guide.
We have started to send out a regular Newsletter to all branch members who have provided CAMRA with an email address.
