The link below to Beer Necessities Issue 12 (April to July) will take you to the magazine that we would have published as normal. However, due to the situation in the pub trade, it is not now being published in printed form.
Please be warned that much of its content is now irrelevant and that few if any of the events publicised in it will now go ahead. In particular the Tredegar House Festival for this year has been cancelled and the inaugural Great Welsh Beer Festival has been deferred to next year. You should certainly check before trying to attend any of the events listed.
We hope to be publishing the next issue, covering August to November as usual but only time will tell if this will be possible. Some of the content in the current issue will be recycled into that issue, so please don’t be surprised if you find yourself reading the same thing twice.
