Campaigning for real ale, pubs & drinkers' rights since 1971.


CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale is an independent, voluntary organisation of over 190,000 members campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. CAMRA acts as the champion for beer drinkers and pub-goers on issues ranging from protecting pubs from closing down, keeping the lid on the price of a pint and ensuring there is fair competition in the beer and pubs market. CAMRA supports well-run pubs as the centres of community life and believe their continued existence play a critical social role in UK culture.
