  07/06/2007: Press Release: New brewery joins existing champion as the top beer in Hampshire.
  23/05/2007: The 62nd edition of Hop Press is published and is being distributed to over 250 pubs & clubs in our area. The expense of producing such a newsletter has to be offset by advertising and this has always been our big problem – as amateur advertising agents none of us has been very effective! This edition attempts to solve the problem, advertising has been handed over to professionals who, as part of the deal, produce the finished copies – glossy paper and in colour, but the editorial remains totally the work of CAMRA. Catch up with the latest news and views about our local pubs, breweries & real ale. If you can't get one in your local, the online Hop Press is here
