CAMRA LocAle promotes pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale.

The scheme builds on growing consumer demand for quality local produce and increased awareness of “green” issues.
Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale

Pubs - as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits

Consumers - who enjoy greater beer choice and diversity

Local brewers - who gain from increased sales

The local economy - because more money is spent and retained locally

The environment - with fewer “beer miles” on deliveries, reducing road congestion and pollution

Tourism - by increasing a sense of local identity and pride. Let’s celebrate what makes our locality different.

Many CAMRA branches have already launched LocAle schemes to encourage local pubs to offer locally brewed beers. Our North Bedfordshire Branch scheme includes all real ales brewed within 25 miles of Bedford.

All pubs and clubs that join the branch scheme are listed on this page. CAMRA will provide licensees with point-of-sale material and pumpclip crowners to promote beers from breweries within the scheme. If you run a local pub or club and would like to join LocAle, please contact Peter Argyle (see Contacs).
