    Joined CAMRA on Friday at the Steel City Beer Festival. Was wondering if any other tmpers are members of this noble group.

    (For anybody not in the know CAMRA is the Campaign for Real Ale.)

    Not a member but have been known to sample real ale as nad when it is available in certain hostelries and at the Great British Beer Festival @ Olympia. The only place where the queue for the gents is longer than the queue for the ladies [​IMG]

    Have been a member for about 4 years.Having been to a good few beer festivals around the country , many often feature a local brass band at some stage.Now that would be my ideal job - a gig at a beer festival!! The playing may suffer though!

    I joined a couple of years ago, but gave up as I need the membership fee to spend on beer.

    Been a member for half my life! Managed to persuade many other players to become members (through insistent beer Boccing), and am looking forward to my brass ensemble doing a week at the previously mentioned Fleetwood Marine Hall, when the Wyre Lounge will be put through it's paces!

    Not a member anymore, since we just don't have the drinking-time available to make it wirthwhile, but we support the idea whole-heartedly and get to beer festivals when we can. Just spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon at the Nantwich Beer Festival the other week, actually.
    Oh and LittleBabyBadger's best friend's Daddy is CAMRA regional director for Cheshire....if you've been to Olympia in the last 10 years you will have undoubtedly seen Big Marc - 6'7" and 20 stone....
