    Newark CAMRA strives to increase consumer choice of real ale by objecting to pub closures and championing high standards of customer service in the areas public houses. We support our local breweries by promoting the diversity they bring to the bar.

    Newark CAMRA also brings national issues such as tax and opening hours to local attention. Importantly, we are a social group of likeminded drinkers of all ages and walks of life. Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings, details of which can be found elsewhere in this issue.

    This Programme is published by Capital Media Ltd., Aura Commerce Centre, Manners Road, Newark, NG24 1BS. To reach a high proportion of discerning imbibers across East Nottinghamshire, contact the Capital Media team on 01636 302 302.

    Opinions expressed within this Programme are not necessarily those of the editorial staff or CAMRA at a local or national level.

    CHAIRMANSREPORT

    R E A L A L E C I D E R PERRY COUNTRY WINE

    Dear Festivalgoer

    This is my first year as Chairman of the branch, and Id like to welcome you to the 17th Newark Beer Festival. Id like to take this opportunity to thank the last Chairman, Duncan Neil, who has left me with such a strong branch and supportive team.

    I am pleased that the battle for real ale seems to have been won with almost 1000 breweries in the UK supplying a varied range of beers. However, the problems CAMRA has seen over the years regarding the closure of pubs is still apparent. If we do not support the pubs we will lose the war. So I encourage you to visit some of the very good outlets in Newark whilst you are in town or on any future visits. To give you some guidance, the members of the branch in conjunction with Capital Media have produced a local guide to all the pubs in the area; this is being launched at this festival. Please come along to the Real Ale Guide stand (next to the membership stand) to purchase your copy.

    Finally, I would like to thank all the volunteers who are staffing the festival - this includes all the work done that you as customers do not see, for instance the committee that put in so much effort throughout the year to organise the event and those who, before and after the festival, set up and take everything down and put the equipment into storage ready for next years event.

    I encourage you all to enjoy the beers, ciders and perries we have on offer, but please remember to drink responsibly and if you have enjoyed yourselves tell your friends as we will be back in 2013.

    FESTIVALETIQUETTE

    Beer festival virgins should take a few moments here to learn about Festival Etiquette. If you are standing with an empty glass, pick a brew at random, and then return to this page. Off you go. Now here are some tips to help enjoyyour session.

    1. The breweries are listed in alphabetical order, followed by the brewerys location, the beer strength and then a short tasting note. Remember some of these brews are so new not even our cellarmen have tasted them, so please be tolerant if the descriptions arent 100% accurate.

    2. We suggest you start at the lower end of the ABV (alcohol by volume) scale, say around 3.5%, and move steadily towards the heavier beers

    at 6 or 7% and beyond. Remember, at this end of the scale you may lose your self-respect, use of your legs, or even your partner!

    3. We cant guarantee that every beer will be available at every session. It is our policy not to serve beer that isnt ready, and some beers (marked as RES in the list) arent likely to be on first. If your choice isnt available, there may be several reasons: i) We were unable to get the advertised beer an alternative from that brewery will usually be on offer. ii) The beer is not yet ready to serve be patient, it may be available a little later. iii) Youre late and its already sold out!

    4. Dont forget to eat! Visit our caterers occasionally to help soak up the beer. Or if you just want nibbles, we stock crisps, nuts and locally produced scratchings in the marquee.

    PLEASE dont drink and drive. Soft drinks are available for drivers and we have timetables and taxi numbers at the information desk.
