Ale, Liquor and Cider Society (ALCSOC)

University of Leicester's Real Ale, Liquor & Cider Society (or ALCSOC for short). Membership is just £3 for a year with a load of benefits and events!

Hello everyone, now’s your chance to get involved a up and coming society within the student union, ALCSOC. If you have an appreciation for Real Ales, Fine Liquors or Ciders (any type of booze really (not VKs)), then we’re the society for you! With a membership fee of just £3 a year that includes discounts at several locations across Leicester not to mention the bi-weekly events, there’s really no reason to miss out on joining. Even if you're not a big drinker, feel free to come hang out and have a good night in town!


Upcoming events:

-- Brewdog intro to craft beer tasting [7pm October 10th] - for just £5 you'll get to try 6 beers of 6 different styles. A great way to see if you'll like what we do. You don't need to be a member for this event. Pay online (preferably so we know numbers) or on the door.

-- T-shirt bar crawl in collaboration with COCKSOC, a new cocktail society! [8pm October 16th] - Starting at Parcel Yard and weaving its way across the city before ending at the 02, it'll be a night of new drinks, new people and stupid challenges. Just £5 (£4 for members) for the T-shirt!

-- Something spooky on the week of Halloween

-- Framework brewery tour and tasting. [6pm November 15th] - 4x half-pints of Framework's lovely beers, inside the brewery, the freshest beer can get. Meet the brewers Andrew and his son Noah, and learn a hell of a lot about how beer is made. At just £5 this is an absolute steal, so grab a ticket whilst you can, as only 30 will be available.

-- 2nd annual 10 society quiz, [7pm December 3rd] - A massive collaboration event hosted by us at Hogarths, with prizes for winning teams. Free entry. Bringing a wide range of societies together including Labour, Conservatives, History and many more!
