CAMRA Introduction

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, is an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, real cider, real perry, community pubs and consumer rights.

CAMRA is considered one of the most successful consumer organisations across Europe. Founded by four real ale enthusiasts back in 1971, today we represent nearly 200,000 members across the UK.

Our vision is to have quality real ale, cider and perry and thriving pubs in every community. Our mission is to promote and advocate:
– the production, availability and consumption of quality real ale, cider and perry
– pubs and clubs as social centres and part of the UK’s cultural heritage
– the benefits of responsible social drinking

We do this by encouraging beer-drinking and pub-going with our beer festivals, pub finders and awards, and by lobbying Government for change to best support the industry.

There’s plenty for everyone, whether you’re a dedicated campaigner, a beer connoisseur looking to learn more about beer or just want to meet up with friends in your local. Why not join the beer movement?
