West Berkshire Branch of CAMRA


The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is an organisation dedicated to fighting for the preservation of traditional British beer and traditional British pubs. Once described as 'the most successful consumer pressure group in Western Europe', the Campaign was formed by 4 journalists in 1971 who were horrified at the declining quality of British beer.

By the end of 2015, the total membership of CAMRA topped 175,000 members. These members are located throughout the United Kingdom organised into more than 180 branches similar to West Berkshire CAMRA.
