Do you enjoy a pint of good cask ale? Do you like to see a wide variety of different beers - different styles, different tastes? Do you appreciate the warmth and conviviality of the traditional British pub?
If you can answer 'yes' to any or all of these questions you are sure to benefit by becoming a member of CAMRA.
The Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 110,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small corps of professional executives. It speaks for consumers everywhere in supporting traditional pubs and breweries, helping to raise standards in the brewing, keeping and serving of cask conditioned ale, speaking out against the rundown or closure of pubs and breweries, and spreading the word about finding the best beer. Ultimately, the way we've been most successful has been in informing the drinking public, letting them know where quality beer and interesting pubs can be found - and enabling them to vote with their feet by patronising the brewers and publicans who provide what they want.
As a member you can have your say about the issues which affect you. You can stand for election to office, attend the annual conference to speak and vote, and help organise local campaigns.
You can help select pubs for the Good Beer Guide, help out at beer festivals and enjoy some excellent social activities.
You can get big discounts on the Good Beer Guide and other CAMRA books and products, as well as free or reduced price admission to CAMRA beer festivals and a host of other benefits . And you'll receive our monthly newspaper, What's Brewing, delivered to your door every month. All new members receive the Member's Handbook as soon as they are registered.
