Northamptonshire needs brewery liaison officers (BLO)

Northamptonshire branch currently has opportunities for those who want to volunteer as brewery liaison officers (BLOs) for the following breweries: Boot Town, Creaton Grange, Hoppy Family, Maule and Purple Cow.

Brewery liaison officers are an essential part of CAMRA’s campaigning and provide the link between the Campaign and those brewing great beer. BLOs work closely with their breweries to ensure that news and information is passed to CAMRA and that the right information is included in the Good Beer Guide, as well as making sure the breweries are kept informed about CAMRA activities. It’s a great opportunity to really get to know about your local brewery and the brewing process.

There may be further opportunities to volunteer after the branch’s AGM in February.

To see the breweries, with links to their websites, go to:

If you are interested in a BLO role, or require further information, please email:
