What is CAMRA?
Currently having over 186,000 members around the world, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), could be considered one of the most successful consumer campaigns ever.
Founded in 1971 by a few real ale enthusiasts, at a time when traditional ales were served straight from the casks they were brewed in.
The term “Real Ale” has now been expanded to include bottle conditioned beer, while the term ‘cask ale’ is now an accepted term to indicate a beer conditioned in the cask and not served under pressure.
The core aim of CAMRA is to promote real ale and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer’s champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry, remain to this day. CAMRA also supports the growing interest in real Cider and Perry.
