North Beds CAMRA
The Campaign for Real Ale

The North Bedfordshire branch promotes the main aims of CAMRA and provides information about pubs, breweries and activities in this area. The core aims are the promotion of real ale, real cider and perry, and to promote pubs not just as places to drink but to highlight the important role they play at the heart of every community.


For more information visit CAMRA.ORG.UK 
for more information about the campaign, what real ale is and for details of current key campaigns.


If you live in North Bedfordshire and would like to join us in our many activities please go to the JOIN page for more information.


The North Bedfordshire Branch of The Campaign for Real Ale covers the County roughly North of the A507 and West of the A1/ B658.
