The aim of the Group will be to go somewhere different each month with a simple theme of beer and/or cider. Often this will just be a pub at a given time, but there will sometimes be a suggested train or bus to catch.

 This is a sociable group so it is really important for ALL members to wear U3A lanyards to all events.

 If you would like to attend, please send an e-mail to and you will receive regular invites.

 At the first meeting :

It was decided not to make a fixed day each month, but rather to vary the days to allow as many members as possible to attend from time to time.

Next Visit

January 2018 TBA

February2018 : On Tuesday 13 February at 11:00 until about 3pm in Leamington Spa. There will be an hour or so break while the grain mashes, so we can all go find lunch then.

Visiting at their new premises in the Leamington Arches where we will be shown the whole brewing process from grain to glass. You  will also find plenty of guidance on quality home-brewing of craft beer and be able to buy all you need.

The cost is 15 each (to cover the cost of the samples) and there are 12 places. Please book your place by making cash payment (no cheques please) to Stew Moffatt 87 Station Rd CV7 7FN. First come, first served.

Shop is on Clemens Street, Leamington Spa CV31 2DP, new premises under arches on pay and display car park behind (Access from Court St) where the demonstration will be held. View map at


 Please all remember to bring your U3A name lanyards to help us all learn names.

 Please send Stewart an e-mail by Fri 17 Nov if you plan to attend, so I can warn the landlord of our numbers.

 There are only 2 rules:
1. Max round is 3 drinks (to protect whoever arrives early at the bar)

2. Remember to buy all drinks for your driver.
