Good Beer Guide 2021

After a difficult year for everybody we can finally see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. COVID cases continue to fall and the roll out of the vaccine has been a remarkable achievement.

We also find ourselves tentatively looking forward to a controlled reopening of the hospitality trade subject to the COVID data still showing a fall in cases, an NHS that can cope and the continued uptake of the vaccine. 
Hospitality businesses with outside trading areas may reopen on the 12th April with all hospitality reopening on the 17th May. 

At this time these businesses need our support, with the loss of several key trading times such as Christmas and, for the Ashbourne town pubs at least, the loss of the Royal Shrovetide Football 2021. 

I am pleased to report that CAMRA will be producing a Good Beer Guide for 2021 and we are now looking for nominations for pubs in our area, a map of which can be found on our website

We have three entries in the GBG and we are asking all our branch members to submit three nominations each with a brief sentence or two why you are nominating the pub in the format. These can be submitted by returning this email / letter or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


I’d like to wish you all continued good health and look forward to meeting you again soon when our branch meetings can safely resume. 

Kindest Regards
Dave Etheridge
