Campaign for Real Ale

Rutland CAMRA

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 and pubs. We are a voluntary organisation with over 175,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe. CAMRA promotes good quality real ale 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 website and hopefully our beautiful County. We have around 60 pubs, 2 breweries. We are easy to get to being in the heart of England. But the down side to this is that we have lost about 10% of our pubs over the last 18 months – we intend to stop this rot and can do it with your help.

So get here when as soon as you can – a warm welcome awaits you.

Rutland CAMRA became a fully independent branch 5 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 throughput the year and would love to welcome you to these.

Our Membership is around the 175 mark, we would love to increase this, you can join by going to . Our Real Ale pubs are very popular and we hope to get more customers to help us keep their pubs alive.

So please enjoy your visit to our site and if you need more information go to

We may be small in area but we are a very active Branch and we look forward to meeting you.
