ALE November/December 1996 No. 286

20th Birthday of ALE

This is number 286, the 290th edition to appear.

The first issue appeared in Cambridge pubs on 1st January 1976, when Greene King was about 23p a pint! This was a duplicated sheet printed on one side only. ALE was by no means the first Branch newsletter, but it was one of the earliest. Within six weeks it was printed on both sides, but it was not until April 1979 that the eight page format appeared.
