Branch Events

Over the last few months the Pigs Ear team have put a lot of work into organising a Covid safe Pig’s Ear for December 2020, but sadly the new Tier 2 restrictions have made it impossible to run an indoor beer festival at this time. So, for now, we have had to postpone this year’s Pig’s Ear, but we have everything ready to go and will be reviewing the situation constantly to see if we can bring you a festival earlier next year… In the meantime we urge you to support your local pubs and breweries in any way you can.     


Tier 2 Pubs Here is a list of pubs that have indicated they have opened in tier 2, Please can you let us know of any errors or omissions. Thanks Beer2you. Some months ago CAMRA launched Brew2You, part of our Pulling Together campaign, in response to the nationwide lockdown. Brew2You allows beer and cider lovers to support their locals by ordering beer, cider and perry straight to their door as delivery or takeaway. As we now enter a second lockdown in England, we are urging all members to support breweries and pubs direct to help them weather this storm.
