The Brit Bar is an avid supporter of CAMRA and the work they are doing in regard to small independent pubs and breweries alike. We support their ongoing campaign with regards to protecting pubs against developers and making our community stronger than ever. Furthermore being added to the CAMRA Good Beer Guide year on year certainly helps us and small pubs alike.
With over 188,000 members around the world, the Campaign for Real Ale is considered one of the most successful consumer campaigns ever. Their aim is to have good quality real ale, ciders and perries and to have thriving pubs and clubs in every community.
They are independent and their policies and campaigning objectives are set by their membership
CAMRA’s decision making process is wholly independent of any commercial companies or other organisations
CAMRA was founded by four real ale enthusiasts in 1971 when traditional rich-flavoured ales were under threat from brewers producing bland and flavourless beer. Through CAMRA’s tireless campaigning, real ale is now produced by over 1,500 breweries across the UK – a tenfold increase since the campaign started.
CAMRA believes well-run pubs, whether in rural or urban areas, play a critical social role in UK culture as the centres of community life. CAMRA supports the traditional pub as the best place in which to enjoy real ale and to try one of the thousands of superb beverages now produced across the UK.
CAMRA is volunteer-led and governed by a National Executive who are elected and supported by a professional staff responsible for central campaigning, research, membership services, publishing, marketing, press and administration. CAMRA is made up of thousands of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to further its aim.
CAMRA is financed by membership subscriptions, sales of books and merchandise and proceeds from national and local beer festivals. CAMRA is a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee.
