Camden Town Brewery launches virtual pub quiz to raise money for hospitality workers


In lieu of your local being open we want to help keep the community spirit alive, so we’re giving our Brewery Bar a digital makeover.

Introducing: THE CAMDEN BRE.WWW.ERY BAR – Camden Town Brewery’s first virtual venture, who said social distancing couldn’t be social? We know how important pub culture is to the British, so during this new reality we want to find a way to keep as much of that spirit alive.

A space where lager lovers can enjoy an IRL pint in a URL venue, we’re lining up a packed schedule of weekly events, kicking off with a pub quiz on Thursday 26th March, 7pm.

Hosted by Camden quiz master, comedian Josh Weller, the pub quiz will take place live on our Instagram. Featuring five rounds, you best have your general knowledge on tap to be in with a chance of winning the freshest of prizes (Hells Lager delivered straight to your door.)

But don’t worry if you’ve already got plans – we’ll be putting the quiz out on our Instagram stories soon after the live rendition is finished, so you can play catch up.

We’ve even set up a CAMDEN BRE.WWW.ERY BAR ‘digital tip jar’ through JustGiving to raise money for Hospitality Action’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund. The emergency fund enables Hospitality Action to make a one-off grant to eligible workers suddenly facing hardship, supporting our friends in the hospitality sector during these uncertain times.

It’s the great pubs up and down the country that has made Camden Town Brewery what it is today, so we’ll also be taking donations through our web shop, and matching all donations made by Camden fans.

Jasper Cuppaidge, Founder of Camden Town Brewery says: “We might not be able to enjoy a pint at our favourite pub right now, so we’ve launched the next best thing, our BRE.WWW.ERY BAR! We started Camden in the basement of a pub, and it’s the pubs, restaurants, bars and teams up and down the country that have made Camden Town Brewery what it is today. So we are doing our best to re-create the British pub culture in this new reality, by bringing people together and offering all the fun of the pub in your own home, while supporting the hospitality industry when they need us the most. Grab a beer, and see you at the BRE.WWW.ERY BAR!”

Mark Lewis, Chief Executive of Hospitality Action says: “We’ve been so touched by the sense of community within the hospitality industry during the coronavirus crisis, with brands like Camden Town Brewery really stepping up to help the industry. Pubs, bars and restaurants across the country are suffering significantly so we’ve created the COVID-19 Emergency Grant, a way of helping hospitality workers get through the next few months.”

THE CAMDEN BRE.WWW.ERY BAR pub quiz will be the first in a series of events held at your new online local. From live music, to stand-up comedy, keep your eyes peeled on our social pages for the full line-up of entertainment, all to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own living room.
