Keep checking this page - we often get offers from brewers that we can't refuse, but at too short notice to get into the O to K Magazine.

For coach trips we ask for a £5 deposit , which is not normally refundable. It is usually also possible to pick up at Browns Coaches in South Kirkby, and en route for CAMRA Members from neighbouring branches where practical.
