Pub and Club Surveys, and Databases

The Branch maintains separate databases of all pubs and clubs in the district but with 385 pubs and at least 149 licensed clubs, keeping up-to date information on them is like painting the Forth Bridge, especially with all the changes going on in the drinks industry. We try to record all cask ales that are stocked regularly in our pubs and clubs, otherwise the three words no real ale. We do welcome updates from licensees or customers. You can request either or both of these Microsoft Excel documents (Lotus 1-2-3 will handle them, sort of) by e-mailing the compiler and webmaster. Pubs and clubs which are being considered for entry in the Good Beer Guide are subject to more intensive scrutiny. Also from time to time a special Cask Force will go into territory where we feel we are short of information, and maybe dedicated licensees need encouragement, not carrying a supply of War Cry magazines but our own O-Ks.

Big news is that we're starting, after well over a decade, to put together a new local beer guide. In the first instance the material is being entered on the nationally co-ordinated Branch Database System.
