Why society members should join

As well as enjoying all the benefits of being a CAMRA member you will start discovering that there is more to beer than what you usually find at the bar.

Real ale is a natural, living beer and offers over 3,000 different ales to choose from - the complete opposite to keg beers such as Carling, Stella and Guinness Draught.

Whether you already drink real ale or have never tried a pint before, joining your University Real Ale Society and CAMRA will open your eyes to the vast and interesting world of quality beer and pubs.

CAMRA is a campaign of two halves and offers members the opportunity to enjoy real ale and pubs as well as campaign for pub goers and beer drinkers.

Once your university is affiliated, society members will be able to join CAMRA for £10 Cash/Cheque (no direct-debit option) for their first year of membership, by completing a University Affiliation Membership form and returning it to their society or CAMRA HQ. Forms can be collected for your university's Real Ale Society.

It will be treated like an introductory rate. Society members will then revert back to the usual student rate after the first year, if still under 26 years old.

Membership Benefits

Affiliated society members will receive all CAMRA membership benefits, including £20 worth of Wetherspoon real ale vouchers, discounted entry to over 160 beer festivals and 10% off cottages4you bookings and online access to CAMRA's monthly newspaper What's Brewing and quarterly magazine BEER.
