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 1170 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.
In recent weeks the various Governments and Assemblies of the UK have announced how their roadmaps will be progressing.
How does this affect CAMRA Branches?
No branch meetings or arranged gatherings such as socials can take place before complete government lifting of restrictions which in England, affecting most branches, we know will not happen any earlier than 21 June.
UPDATE: Unfortunately this has now been extended until 19th July 2021
Updated Monday 5th July, the government have confirmed that as from 19th July the restrictions covering social meetings like our CAMRA meetings have been lifted. Therefore we are aiming to hold our Branch AGM on the 4th August 2021, further details will be circulated ASAP to branch members via this web site, emails and our social media sites
You may have seen publicity and social media announcements about a beer festival being held at Hull Minster in August.
Can we just clarify that this festival is not linked in any way to the annual festival run by the Hull & East Yorkshire branch of CAMRA.
It is a festival being independently organised by a local business and the article about this in local media outlets could be seen as misleading into thinking that we are running our festival next month.
The CAMRA festival will not be taking place this year following guidance and will hopefully return in April 2022.
Cask Ale Week are instigating the ‘Stand Up For Cask’ campaign on social media, coinciding with the changes in lockdown rules in England, which allow people to stand and chat in pubs – and, crucially, to order from the bar.
All players in the industry, from the largest pub chain to the smallest pub or brewery, are invited to join the clarion call for cask. Members of the Cask Matters Group, which includes pub companies, breweries and industry bodies, have committed to using the #StandUpForCask and #PubFreshBeer hashtags on their social media platforms from 19th July to 1st August, the duration for the campaign.
Everyone across the industry is invited to join in ad post daily on social media using the #StandUpForCask hashtag and logo, which is available for anyone to download
via https://caskaleweek.co.uk/stand-up/ - helpful resources such as assets and content planners for the 2 weeks can also be found there.
The importance of championing cask beer has never been greater. According to a recent report by the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group, cask beer was responsible for 72,500 jobs prior to the pandemic. However, lockdowns saw 87 million pints, worth more than £300 million, being poured down the drain. With them went many jobs across the supply chain and a huge contribution to the UK and local economies in terms of revenue and taxes.
This new campaign ties in well to the launch of the Great British Beer Festival At Your Local, helping pubs up and down the country to celebrate real ale and cider by getting consumers back to the pub.
Further information about local pub involvement see our dedicated page at GBBF 2021 at your local

Now pubs have reopened make your first drink a cask beer from a local independent
brewery. You can only get cask beer in pubs, so now Cask is BACK, let’s back CASK.
