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
For news about the way forward for CAMRA, following discussions with about 30 000 CAMRA members with over 50 presentations nationwide during 2016, and three CAMRA member surveys, please visit REVITALISATION PROJECT. CAMRA members are encouraged to sign in and vote for, or against, the proposed changes to our Articles of Association. Members who vote on-line, and subsequently attend the National Members Weekend, Conference and AGM in Coventry at the University of Warwick, can change their minds at the conference BUT CAN ONLY VOTE ONCE ! Full details will be available in the March 2018 edition of What's Brewing, which may arrive a day or two later than usual.
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 CAMRA SOUTH WEST Regional website with 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 members should sign in and visit the Members' Area for details of National and Regional events, including national and regional beer festivals, Regional Social activities and Regional Meetings. To sign in, please use your CAMRA membership number and password. If you do not know your password, please click HERE
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 ! Please follow the link for full details of this 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 Drake's Drinker Magazine, 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
