What is CAMRA?

CAMRA campaigns for real ale, real pubs and consumer rights. We are an independent, voluntary organisation with over 150,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe. CAMRA promotes good-quality real ale and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer's champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry.

We aim to:

Protect and improve consumer rights
Promote quality, choice and value for money
Support the public house as a focus of community life
Campaign for greater appreciation of traditional beers, ciders and perries as part of our national heritage and culture
Seek improvements in all licensed premises and throughout the brewing industry

Why not join us today if you care about great quality real ale and pubs?

It is no exaggeration to say that CAMRA saved real ale in the U.K. and as a result saved many independent breweries. No new ale breweries were set up in the UK for the fifty years before we were founded. There are now around 300 new brewers producing real ale, part of a massive real ale revival.

Our membership has increased by 30,000 since 1989 to 50,000 in 1997. The two growth areas in the beer market are for premium lagers and real ales, as we see a more discerning drinker.

Benefits of being a member of CAMRA include receiving the monthly What's Brewing? newspaper, which is always full of interesting articles, and reduced admission charges to most CAMRA beer festivals. CAMRA produces several books and guides each year that are available to members at reduced prices.


There are national and local campaigns as CAMRA maintains its efforts to ensure the availability of traditional real ales. It is campaigning to ensure that every pint of beer bought actually contains a full pint: far too many do not. CAMRA campaigns for reduced tax on beer and assistance for smaller brewers.

Locally, branches campaign to keep breweries open and to protect the heritage of grand heritage pubs.

It should be pointed out that we also meet in pubs very often, where we talk and drink beer a great deal in variable proportions.
