Hull & East Yorkshire Branch

Welcome...

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 1250 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!
