Welcome to Wyre Forest CAMRA

Wyre Forest branch is part of the West Midlands Region of CAMRA.

The branch covers the towns of Bewdley, Stourport and Kidderminster, and the surrounding areas as far as Newnham Bridge to the west, Blakedown and Hagley to the east and Hartlebury to Shrawley to the south.

Here you can find information on local CAMRA activities. All CAMRA members living in the area are warmly invited to actively participate in branch activities; be that our annual beer festival, Members' Meetings, pub visits, brewery visits or beer scoring tours, amongst other activities.

Pub of the Year 2024

Gold Winner - Bewdley Brewery Tap.
Silver Winner - Hollybush, Stourport.
Bronze Winner - The Black Star, Stourport.

Pubs were judged on a range of criteria, including quality and knowledge of drinks on offer, their decor and atmosphere, welcome and service, community focus and sympathy with CAMRA's aims.

We are truly blessed with many good pubs in Wyre Forest and these three edged the competition.

Award presentations to these successful pubs will be held later this month.

Our congratulations go to the whole team who have made the club the success it has become.

CAMRA's Online Pub Locator & Guide: WhatPub

This is a great website for finding out about pubs, and it can locate those nearest to you. In most areas of the UK, it has been updated with the latest services (take away meals, etc) being provided. If you're a CAMRA member whilst out and about you can record your beer scores in WhatPub, as it's beer scores that determine which pubs are selected for inclusion in the Good Beer Guide. Full details are available here: Beer Scoring and the Good Beer Guide
