Campaign for Real Ale

Hull & East Yorkshire Branch

Welcome...

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.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) joined industry bodies calling for support for pubs, bars, pubcos and breweries to mark this year’s Cask Ale Week, which was from 23 September to 3 October, as part of their comeback following the coronavirus pandemic.

CAMRA has long supported Cask Ale Week, an initiative which calls on pub-goers to choose cask–conditioned ale and aims to promote locally produced cask ale. The past year has been devastating for the industry and has been especially hard on the sales of hand-pulled cask beer, which can only be served in pubs. With a limited shelf-life compared to other beverages, cask beer is the freshest beer available and a uniquely British product – however, sales of this fresh British beer are down 70% over the past year.

It is vital that the industry is provided with much needed support, for local breweries as well as pubs and clubs, so that they can survive and thrive.

CAMRA Chief Executive Tom Stainer says: “After an incredibly difficult year for the industry, we’re looking forward to joining forces to support and promote UK pubs and breweries. “Pubs matter and are a vital part of our communities up and down the country. What’s more, the pub is the only place you can get fresh cask ale from your local brewery. We are urging everyone to celebrate Cask Ale Week in style, by getting back down to their local pub, social club or brewery taproom and enjoying a pint of cask ale.”

Other bodies involved in the initiative included Cask Marque, the British Beer & Pub Association, UKHospitality and SIBA.
