Walsall is situated in the West Midlands area known as the Black Country. The 
town has a fine industrial legacy of brass and iron founding, manufacturing 
electronics, hardware and more famously, leather goods.

A Royal Manor status was created by Henry II and Walsall's history is long and 
varied. The town now has a relatively new look, with the Saddler's Centre leading
 to the railway station, an award-winning bus station, new art gallery and an 
excellent arboretum.

Author of "Three Men in a Boat", Jerome J, Jerome was born here and the town 
has a free Jerome museum.

The Walsall branch of CAMRA has existed since 1972 the early days of CAMRA 

and in 2007 we celebrated our 35th birthday.

The branch area encompasses, in a clockwise direction around Walsall

, Brownhills, Pelsall, Walsall Wood, Aldridge, Pheasey, parts of West Bromwich, Wednesbury, Darlaston, Willenhall, Short Heath, Bloxwich. 

The branch has regular meetings, as can be seen from the Branch Meetings and Socials diary list. Annual beer festivals are a popular form of campaigning and 

are visited by people from across the West Midlands and further afield.

Walsall's oldest brewery is Highgate, which survived closure by Mitchells and 

Butlers, following a management buyout,

Nearby, at the Chasewater Country Park, can be found the Beowulf 

micro-brewery. The brewery is named after the Nordic epic poem, and many of 

the beers it produces are named after characters from the poem. Also we have Backyard Brewhouse Since 2008 have experimented with different combinations 

of hops and ingredients to find both traditional and excitingly new tasting ales

 situated in Brownhills. More recent addition is AJS Brewery situated In Walsall

 town centre. In 2016 Walsall Beer Festival winning ale of the festival with Stuck

 In The Mud.
