Welcome to the Web Site of the Furness Branch of CAMRA - The Campaign for Real Ale

Not getting any (emails)?

If you think that we have forgotten you, it may be that you ticked the box for 'no emails' on your application form. Once you tick that, we can't legally send you out any emails, including those from the Branch, about trips and meetings etc. We want you to feel part of the Branch so to change this, sign in to the main CAMRA website (using you membership number and password) and you can then change your preferences. Of course, you don't have to but you may be missing out!

Unfortunately, at present, nothing much is happening but once things improve then you will be 'in-the-loop'.

InnQuirer - Branch Magazine Update

Currently, the paper issue of InnQuirer is suspended as is the downloadable .pdf version (since that is actually an export of the printed version!). We did try an online web page for a few months but there was very little interest in it.

Coronavirus - Latest information

Monday 10th May 2021

From Monday 17th May, indoor is back! Now that doesn't mean everything is back to 2019 but with a bit of care and consideration, things are looking better. If everyone is sensible then things can only improve. Remember Rule of 6 or 2 households still applies even indoors but larger gatherings outside will be permitted (maximum 30). Still table service though but we are getting there!

  • Next step - not before 21st June: If everything goes well then pubs can re-open 'normally'.
  • Something else to be aware of - although it is unlikely that some sort of vaccine 'Passport' will be introduced nationally, you will still have to sign-in or use the NHS Track-and-Trace app on your phone just like last year and that will mean everyone in the group, not just the 'head' of the group!

Committee members are trying to keep in touch with on-line meetings but physical meetings will resume once restrictions allow.

Although we do have tentative plans for a 2021 Beer Festival, we don't know if we will be able to do something this year. CAMRA needs to give us the OK of course but on top of that, the Festival needs to pay its way so running one at a loss is a no-no!

Please have a look around the website - we hope you like what you see and that you enjoy our wonderful area, its amazing choice of top quality breweries and its friendly local pubs.
Obviously in the current situation, things are not running as they were but we are all still here monitoring the situation and we will be back once everything calms down.
Even in the current pandemic, CAMRA is still keeping working for you all, members, pubs and breweries so even if you are not already a CAMRA member, why not think about joining and enjoy all the benefits that membership brings (and there are more than you think) and at the same time, help CAMRA keep campaigning for us? Find out more. You can always give membership as a gift!
