Longdog brewery visit - Saturday 10th December

Our last trip was to the Longdog brewery in Basingstoke on Saturday 10th December using a vintage bus from the Stroud RE group.

First we spent an hour in Newbury where members visited the Cow & Cask Micropub, Wetherspoons and King Charles Tavern.

We then proceeded to the Longdog brewery where we were able to try 4 different types of ales between 14.00 - 16.30.

Unfortunately the planned stop at Wantage on way back home had to be abandoned because the bus battery was not charging and we couldn't risk stopping.

Ramsbury Beer of the Festival 2014 Presentation

At the 28th Swindon Beer Festival in October 2014, Ramsbury Brewery won the 'Champion Beer' prize, with their Belapur IPA. On the 7th February 2015, this branch organised a visit to the brewery to present the certifcate.

Here is a short video of the visit:
