Campaign for Real Ale

Hull & East Yorkshire Branch


This is the website of Hull & East Yorkshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) an organisation 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 1320 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.

4th January 2021 - National Lockdown ver 3

A new lockdown was announced yesterday and there is currently uncertainty on whether pubs and clubs can continue to sell alcohol for takeaway in sealed containers – just as supermarkets and off- licences can.

From the information that has been published so far, it looks like the Government will prevent pubs and clubs from operating as off-licences, despite changing licensing laws last year to allow all venues with a premises licences to make off-sales if they couldn’t already. This was a vital lifeline for many pubs and clubs, and also to brewers who didn’t already operate brewery shops but did have a taproom.

During the last lockdown, we know that a small number of venues allowed customers to order click and collect alcohol in non-sealable containers, which some people drank in public in groups. CAMRA agrees that this lockdown is necessary and that every effort should be made to discourage people from gathering and mixing with those outside of their household or support bubble – but this shouldn’t prevent pubs from operating as off-licences and selling alcohol in sealed containers – just as supermarkets and off licences do.

Our latest press release about this can be found here. We have also written to Alok Sharma, Secretary of State for BEIS, the Department responsible for this change. The letter is on social media and can be found in full at the end of the press release.

A revised e-lobby, calling for the Government to allow pubs to continue to sell alcohol in sealed containers and act as off-licenses has also been launched today

Small Brewers Relief

Your local beer is under threat.
The Government is set to increase the tax paid by some small independent breweries in the UK. This could lead to brewery closures, and less choice at the bar for you.

CAMRA has joined calls for the Government to think again – we need your help to persuade them that this is bad for UK brewing and bad for consumers.
