Rutland CAMRA was formed in 2008, we were formerly a sub-branch of Leicester CAMRA, we became a full branch in July 2011.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is an independent consumer organisation whose major objectives are to maintain consumer rights and choice with regard to UK beer, Cider and pubs. We are a voluntary organisation with over 190,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe. CAMRA promotes good quality real ale, Cider and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer’s champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry.

Welcome message from our Chairman

Beer Festival Budget is now approved so please come and see us June 28 to July 1st more info’ is on our Beer Festival page on this site,

Hello and welcome to our website and hopefully our beautiful County. We have around 60 pubs, 3 breweries and some stunning scenery. We are easy to get to being in the heart of England. But the down side to this is that we are still losing pubs – we intend to stop this rot and can do it with your help.

Rutland CAMRA became a fully independent branch 6 years ago and we have kept the CAMRA flag flying by arranging our own Rutland CAMRA Beer Festival in Oakham, usually at the end of June. We supply volunteers to neighbouring Branch’s festivals; and we have a number of survey trips and social visits throughout the year and would love to welcome you to these.

Our Membership is around the 180 mark, we would love to increase this, you can join by going to

Our Beer festival is back Jun 28th to July 1st please look at our Beer Festival page on the site and if you can help get in touch.

So please enjoy your visit to our new site, we would like articles and pictures of local beer / cider  related interest please send them to me Chair@rutlandcamra.org.uk.

We may be small in area but we are a very active Branch producing a monthly member’s newletter and a quarterly magazine – The Tiny Pint.

So please come and join us, we look forward to meeting you. For any queries please contact us.
