The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) was founded in 1971 and has been campaigning for real ale, pubs & drinkers’ rights ever since. CAMRA has over 200 branches around the UK and all our activities are led by volunteers. Our members give up their own time to work with pubs in their area, host beer festivals and campaign on a variety of issues.

CAMRA’s Key Campaigns

CAMRA members have chosen 4 main campaigns to concentrate over the next year to 18 months.

The key campaigns are:

1 Stop tax killing beer and pubs
2 Secure an effective government support package for pubs
3 Encourage more people to try a range of real ales, cider and perries
4 To raise the profile of pub-going and increase the number of people using pubs regularly
