Who are CAMRA?

29 04 2010

You will probably hear me mention CAMRA a great deal in my posts, as such I should probably explain who they are and what they do.

In a nutshell CAMRA is the CAMpaign for Real Ale, they were formed back in the 70s with the aim of promoting and raising awareness for Real Ale, Real Cider and the British Pub.

They tend to promote smaller brewers and champion the less common types of beer and other traditional drinks; for example porters, milds, perry and stouts.

They publish a good beer guide each year, along with their monthly magazine which goes out to about 100k members.

CAMRA also organise and support a large number of beer festivals around the UK including the Great British Beer Festival at which there are often awards given out to beers that they deem to be particularly worthy.

Do you like beer?

Not really a challenging question, most people are going to answer somewhere in the region of “hell yeah” and rightly so!

Well if you did indeed answer yes (if not why not?) then you might like to check out my other blog Bottoms Up; it is all about this wonderful life enhancing beverage and good places to enjoy it.

Shameless self promotion I realise but I did swear an oath to promote good beer and good pubs (well maybe not quite an oath!0
