Hull & East Yorkshire Branch


to the websiite of Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA! We are part of the Campaign for Real Ale, an organisaton of volunteers fighting for consumer rights within the pub-going sector. Our aims are to protect those consumer rights, to encourage the use of well run community pubs, and to promote the responsible enjoyment of quality real ale.

Locally we now have over 1319 members but we are always on the lookout for more people to help the campaign... and you could have a lot of fun whilst you're doing it! So if you enjoy real ale, good pubs and good company then why not join up? Visit the Main CAMRA Website where you can see the benefits for yourself.

What's Going On? Are you about to have a beer festival at your pub, or a meet the brewer night? Doing something out of the ordinary? Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA would love to hear about it, but we won't know if you don't tell us! Please get in touch if you're doing something special and we'll do our best to let our members know about it. We have a Twitter feed, a Facebook group and mailing lists which can all be used to advertise and promote your events so what are you waiting for?

Shout out and give us the news!

CAMRA launches #PullingTogether Campaign


Pubs, breweries and taprooms are fighting for their very survival against the Coronavirus. Many are finding different and innovative ways to help their business weather the crisis - whether this is by launching hot food deliveries, encouraging locals to buy ‘gift cards’ for the summer or crowdfunding.
There are plenty of ways that you can help support your favourite local business during this time of crisis, whilst adhering to the Government advice on social distancing measures
To find more pubs offering takeaway or delivery services, please visit CAMRA also has a list of breweries offering these services, which is available both on and

It is with a heavy heart that this year’s Great British Beer Festival, due to take place from 4-8 August at Olympia London has been cancelled
The festival, which features over a thousand different beers and regularly attracts nearly 40,000 visitors through the door, has been running for over 40 years. Completely managed by volunteers, it is the largest beer festival across the UK and a fixture in many beer-lovers diaries - and CAMRA is determined it will be back better than ever next year
This decision has not been taken lightly, and we are all too aware how disappointed many of you will feel - particularly those of you who give up your time to volunteer year on year, and those who have already made plans to attend the 2020 festival. These are unprecedented times and I don’t think anyone could have anticipated ever having to make this decision
We will of course provide a full refund for anyone who has bought an advanced ticket this year within 5-10 working days. This will be applied automatically, and no further action is required
We are pleased to say that we fully intend to hold GBBF in 2021, CAMRA’s 50​ Anniversary year, and I hope you will join us then. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy


"It is with great sadness that CAMRA and the Hull & East Yorkshire Branch in particular have come to the difficult decision of postponing the 2020 Hull Real Ale & Cider Festival (HRACF) due to be held at Hull Minster in May 2020. This action has been taken on the advice from government concerning mass gatherings and the spread of covid - 19D, and as a consumer lead organisation we feel it is the responsible thing to do
Hull & East Yorkshire Branch of CAMRA apologies for any inconvenience caused and we will attempt to re schedule later this year, hopefully October or November, so please keep an eye on our Social Media channels”.

Pub of the Season Award-postponed

Our NEW Pub of the Season award has been designed to highlight and support pubs and bars across Hull and East Yorkshire. Though not in the Good Beer Guide they should consistently serve good quality real ale in a friendly and comfortable environment

Voting for Spring Award postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions

You must be a CAMRA member; you must have visited the pub in the last three months; you cannot vote for a pub that you own or work at.

This is not a competition between the nominated pubs – simply vote for your first three choices that you think deserve recognition for well kept real ale, a warm welcome and sympathy with CAMRA’s aims.

If you are a CAMRA member and you want to nominate your pub for consideration for the next POTS award please send your nomination to ku.gro.armac.lluh@ofni
