Welcome to Rutland CAMRA

Formed in 2008, we were formerly a sub branch of Leicester CAMRA, we became a full branch in July 2011.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is an independent consumer organisation whose major objectives are to maintain consumer rights and choice with regard to UK beer, Cider and pubs. We are a voluntary organisation with over 190,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe. CAMRA promotes good quality real ale, Cider and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer’s champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry.

Welcome message from our Chairman

Welcome, welcome, welcome to our new website and hopefully our beautiful County. We have around 60 pubs, 3 breweries and some stunning scenery. We are easy to get to being in the heart of England. But the downside to this is that we are still losing pubs – we intend to stop this rot and can do it with your help.

Rutland CAMRA became a fully independent branch 6 years ago and we have kept the CAMRA flag flying by arranging our own Rutland CAMRA Beer Festival in Oakham, usually at the end of June. We supply volunteers to neighbouring Branch’s festivals; and we have a number of survey trips and social visits throughout the year and would love to welcome you to these.

Our Membership is around the 180 mark, we would love to increase this, you can join by going to www.camra.org.uk . Our Real Ale pubs are very popular and we hope to get more customers to help us keep their pubs alive.

Please enjoy your visit to to this, our new site, many thanks to Hugo Spiegl and Des Burgess for getting us so far, we will be adding to the site as we can  But, we are volunteers, so bear with us, and if you need more information go to info@rutlandcamra.org.uk

So please come and join us, we look forward to meeting you.

Jon Whowell

Chairman Rutland CAMRA
