Welcome to Rutland CAMRA

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 187,000 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

Welcome, welcome, 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 www.camra.org.uk . Our Real Ale pubs are very popular and we hope to get more customers to help us keep their pubs alive.

So please enjoy your visit to to this, our temporary site, We need a Webmaster, if interested please let us know, and if you need more information go to info@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
