Hello and welcome to the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.
CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, is an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale and cider, community pubs and consumer rights.
CAMRA was formed in March 1971 by four men from the north-west (Michael Hardman, Graham Lees, Jim Makin and Bill Mellor) who were disillusioned by the domination of the UK beer market by a handful of companies pushing fizzy keg beer onto the consumer.
Their mission to revive the fortunes of real or cask ale has gone on to to become the most successful ever consumer campaign in the UK.
The Swansea branch of Camra was formed in the early 1970s and currently has around 700 members in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot.
The Swansea branch meets every two months on the 3rd Monday of the month, and the Neath Port Talbot sub-branch also meets regularly. Local and visiting members are always welcome.
Beer festival planning meetings are also held regularly from October onwards.
Meetings are held in a different real ale pub every occasion from 8pm onwards. See the Events page for more details.
