Worcestershire Pub and Brewery services during CoronaVirus Crisis
From Our Chairman
I’m sure you all agree this is a time of unprecedented challenges for all our Worcestershire pubs and breweries.
In response, Worcester CAMRA has a webpage to promote Worcestershire pubs and brewery takeout/delivery services during this terrible time.
CAMRA is launching a service to help called pull together. Publicans and brewers are some of the most creative people I know, and we now need to help promote all their initiatives.
We now need helpers to update the information on our WhatPub website with pubs offering takeouts/deliveries and let us know about breweries or cider producers offering similar services. Please let me know if you can help at firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.
Worcestershire Pub Services
Pubs are fighting for their very survival against the Coronavirus. Many are finding different and innovative ways to help their business weather the crisis – whether this is by launching hot food deliveries, encouraging locals to buy ‘gift cards’ for the summer or crowdfunding. There are plenty of ways that you can help support your favourite local business during this time of crisis, whilst adhering to the Government advice on social distancing measures.
Here are a list of Worcestershire Pubs offering special services:

CAMRA PULLING TOGETHER
Campaign For Real Ale
The Pulling Together Campaign in partnership with SIBA and Crowdfund aims to support pubs and breweries through the Covid-19 crisis, which is a time of unprecedented challenges for the industry. We are doing this by promoting pubs and breweries that are still able to offer services at this time (mainly food and beer delivery services) and highlighting pubs which are helping the response to the Covid-19 crisis in their local community.
Everyone can get involved in promoting the campaign – this is about making sure that as many people as possible know what services pubs and breweries are still providing during the Covid-19 crisis.
This doesn’t mean only promoting delivery services of food or online beer orders – it could be things that pubs are doing to help the community response to Covid-19 in their local area.
Pubs and breweries join us on Facebook to let us know about your services. Worcester CAMRA Facebook is open to all to socialise and chat. You can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/299378770102795
Join the online community
Nothing can replace the local pub, but at CAMRA we are striving to bring people together to combat loneliness and isolation imposed by these times. Why join the online community? You can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pullingtogetherforpubspintsandpeople
CAMRA’s Virtual Pub – The Red OnLion
It’s in prototype form at the moment and some of the details are still being worked on. But we would love for you to start testing it out and let us know what you think, what you like, anything missing that you would like, and anything else we can do to make it better.
So, what does this virtual pub offer?
You will be able to share with others what you’re drinking, find your friends, and even create a virtual pub table. This will allow you to create a group chat using your computer or phone’s webcam and microphone while enjoying the hospitality of CAMRA’s virtual pub surroundings.
In addition, we will be providing live entertainment from YouTube and other platforms, as well as special events to get involved in with your friends and drinking partners. In particular, we’ll be trying to use the site to promote online initiatives being run by real-life pubs during their enforced closure period.
In general, we will be attempting to replicate, in some small way, the sociable atmosphere that pubs provide, helping to tackle loneliness and social isolation.
