Campaign for Real Ale

Campaign for Real Ale

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

IMPORTANT - Handpump Hijack CAMRA has launched a campaign to raise awareness of Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company’s (CMBC) Fresh Ale concept, which sells keg versions of three of its cask beers through handpumps – long associated with real ales.

We need all members to get involved in helping CAMRA with the campaign to identify pubs where this 'Fresh' ale fake handpump is used as it has a major impact on whether that pub can be considered for inclusion in the next Good Beer Guide, or even remain in the current Guide. 'Misleading Dispense' is one of the areas that CAMRA takes very seriously.

To read more about this, visit CAMRA's dedicated page here: Handpump Hijack.

Pub Surveys Before inclusion in the Good Beer Guide, pubs need to be surveyed to make sure that the information that we have is up-to-date. It is an important task and we need all of our active members to get involved if they can.
To make this task a little simpler, we have created a PDF form for you to fill out when you are checking the pub out. It needn't be a complex task as all we need to do is find out if anything has changed. If you have the latest version of the GBG to hand, you can see what we have currently on record for all pubs so you probably only need to make some updates and even if nothing has changed, you can send in a form or just let us know nothing has changed so we know that the pub has been surveyed! You can download this form and a copy from the front page of the GBG with helpful instructions on what information we need.
To download the form, here is the link: Pubs Survey Form
