If you're not from around these parts, allow me to explain that here on the Isle of Wight we have loads of great pubs and some splendid local beers to seek out.
Click on "find-a-pub" for more details on Island pubs; and click on "local breweries" to find out about the beers and breweries.
If you are from round here, please let me know of any up & coming events and snippets of news & gossip.
You will notice a little bird sitting near the bottom of this page. We have decided to join the twenty first century and now have a twitter thingy. By clicking on the birdy you can follow up-to-date tweety things.
IW CAMRA and the Isle of Wight Bus Museum are joining forces to present a weekend (18th & 19th October) of Classic Buses and Beer (and walks). CLICK HERE. Proceeds to go towards the Bus Museum's move to their new premises in Ryde.
I am particularly keen to make sure the find-a-pub page is up to date. If you've got the time, please have a look, and if you spot and discrepancies, please let me know.
If you value good beer in good pubs, and if you are not already a CAMRA member, please consider joining us.
