We're visiting local pubs on most Thursday evenings. See the Branch Diary page for venues...

If you’d like to take part, just turn up!

Beer scores

Scores are very important in determining nominations for the Good Beer Guide. CAMRA members can rate the beers they drink in pubs and clubs in WhatPub and half scores are possible:

0 - No cask ale available. Not stocked or run out.

1 - Poor Beer that is anything from barely drinkable to drinkable with considerable resentment.

2 - Average Competently kept, drinkable pint but doesn't inspire in any way, not worth moving to another pub but you drink the beer without really noticing.

3 - Good Good beer in good form. You may cancel plans to move to the next pub. You want to stay for another pint and may seek out the beer again.

4 - Very Good Excellent beer in excellent condition.

5 - Perfect Probably the best you are ever likely to find. A seasoned drinker will award this score very rarely.

Wyre Forest CAMRA Beer Scoring Competition

For pubs in the Wyre Forest Branch area you’ll collect ONE point for each beer scored on a visit, and TEN points for each additional pub or club within the Branch area. The top six scorers are rewarded with BEER at the February AGM.

The competition is intended to increase the number of scores submitted through WhatPub and encourage members to visit different pubs.

In the 12 months to 31 January 2017 the total of beer scores was almost 3,900, up on the previous year by nearly 1,000 scores.
