Welcome to the website of the Birmingham Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
Birmingham CAMRA is made up of volunteers from across the city and from all walks of life. We are united together in the common cause to promote pubs within the city and championing the Campaign that has been instrumental in bringing cask ale, cider and perry to our local hostelries. In the Birmingham branch this has never been more important. Members give up their hard earned time to do this and meet up and liaise with one another, mainly over a pint or two!
On this website you will find pages containing the latest pub news; the goings on of the branch, from branch meetings to socials; downloads of our newsletter 'Barrel of Brum'; downloads of the many guides produced for the city; the LocAle pubs in the branch; information about ale and cider; and contact emails to get in touch.
Birmingham is still dominated by big pubcos, such as Punch, Enterprise and M&B and it is true that this can limit the choice of ales on offer. However through the hard work of many of its members, Birmingham pubs are seeing a resurgence of cask ale availability and choice. The opportunity to drink so many different beers has never been greater. Yet Birmingham CAMRA is always forward looking and constantly wanting to better the city-wide ale and cider scene. If you are interested in joining, have any questions or comments, or can't find what you are looking for on this site, then please get in touch with us.
