Standards are very high within real ale outlets in Dumfriesshire and Kirkcudbrightshire, both in the beers always on tap and in the wide range of guest ales which prove very popular with both locals and tourists.”

“Anyone with an interest in real ale is encouraged to join us at our various events and play a part in local activities by simply joining CAMRA”
