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

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. 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  now 200+, a great achievement but we would love to increase this, you can join up by going to

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

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