Hello fellow real ale fans - welcome to the Plymouth CAMRA website!
The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. We now have over 190,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer campaign in Europe. Visit the National CAMRA website CAMRA HOME
At local level, CAMRA’s Plymouth branch has over 1 000 members and organise events to promote real ale, including regular social activities, day trips, brewery visits etc, as well as producing our popular Drake's Drinker magazine. The Plymouth CAMRA branch area is located entirely within Devon. It consists of the city of Plymouth, and extends northwards up to the A30, but just south of it, following the Parish Boundary lines around Lydford and extending eastwards towards Okehampton (located in North Devon branch), then south through the Dartmoor Forest to South Brent, and then to the South Coast. As well as the city, Plympton, Plymstock, and the market town areas of Ivybridge and Tavistock are located within the branch area.
The boundary lines are the River Tamar to the west, the south coast, the River Avon to the east and the Parish Boundaries just south of the A30. Burgh Island and Avonwick are located in Plymouth CAMRA branch area. Bodmin, Callington, Launceston, Liskeard, Saltash and Torpoint are located in CORNWALL BRANCH area. Kingsbridge, Salcombe and South Brent village are located in SOUTH DEVON BRANCH area. Holsworthy and Okehampton are located in NORTH DEVON BRANCH area.
We also have a South West Regional website for details of regional events, links to all South West CAMRA branch websites and details of all known South West breweries, listed both alphabetically and by branch- please check it out CAMRA SOUTH WEST
Our “LocAle” scheme encourages pubs to stock at least one beer from a local brewery located within 30 miles from the pub. This helps to reduce “beer miles”, boosts the local economy and creates an increased sense of local identity and pride – let’s celebrate what makes our region unique ! For full details of this scheme, please follow this link LocAle Scheme
The CAMRA Discount Scheme enables pubs to promote their business to our members and hopefully encourage more trade. The discount given will be advertised free of charge in our branch magazine, Drake’s Drinker, as well as on this website and the National CAMRA website. We can also provide posters to advertise the offer to visitors. If you are the licensee of a pub and are interested in taking part in this scheme, please contact our Branch Vice Chairman, Ian Dickinson, at ku.gro.armac.htuomylp@namriahceciv
