Welcome to the website of the Surrey Branches of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.
The Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 160,000 ordinary people (May 2014) run by an unpaid, elected national executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for people everywhere by fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, attempting to improve quality and choice, and trying to ensure pub standards are raised.
There are 4 CAMRA Branches covering the whole of Surrey.
Local information about each of these Branches and details of events can be found by following the links above. If you’d like to receive our low-volume emails, then please join one of our mailing lists
