Q. What if beer from a brewery is delivered 50 miles away to a distribution centre before being delivered back to my pub only 10 miles away from the brewery?

Q.   What about licensees who are prevented from stocking a local beer by their lease or tenancy agreement?

Q. I have been approached by a local brewery, but they are not on the CAMRA list of LocAle breweries?

Q. What if beer from a brewery is delivered 50 miles away to a distribution centre before being delivered back to my pub only 10 miles away from the brewery?

A. Because the brewery is local to your pub then the beer still qualifies as a local beer. Encouraging pubs to serve local real ales is the first step to reducing beer miles. In some cases, breweries using a wholesaler can cut down "beer miles" by allowing several breweries beers to be delivered to an area in one go.

Q.   What about licensees who are prevented from stocking a local beer by their lease or tenancy agreement?

A.   Our advice would be for you to speak to your Business Relationship Manager to see whether a special arrangement can be made to enable you to sell one local real ale. The Society of independent Brewers' Direct Delivery Scheme allows some lessees of Punch Taverns, Enterprise Inns and Admiral Taverns the option of stocking a real ale delivered direction from a local brewer.

 Q. I have been approached by a local brewery, but they are not on the CAMRA list of LocAle breweries?

A. CAMRA is very pleased that new breweries are starting up all the time. We try to keep the list on this site up with new qualifying breweries as we hear about them, but we're not perfect. It's also possible that the brewery is just outside the LocAle "circle". Get in touch at locale (at) thcamra.org.uk and we can check whether the brewery might be closer to your pub than the centre of the branch.
