LocAle

CAMRA LocAle is an initiative that promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of environmental issues.

What is LocAle

The CAMRA LocAle scheme was created in 2007 by CAMRA’s Nottingham branch which wanted to help support the tradition of brewing within Nottinghamshire, following the demise of local brewer Hardys & Hansons.

Participating CAMRA branches award accreditation to pubs that regularly stock at least one real ale. Real ales from regional and national breweries as well as from microbreweries can be regarded as “local” if they are brewed within what the branch has decided as being the local area.  

Why support LocAle pubs?

Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale, including:

  • Public houses 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 due to fewer ‘beer miles’ resulting in less road congestion and pollution
  • Tourism due to an increased sense of local identity and pride – let’s celebrate what makes our locality different

Finding LocAle pubs

Pubs which have been given LocAle status by their local CAMRA branch can display the LocAle sticker on their windows or doors. The stickers have the year for which they have been accredited as LocAle pubs by their branch. They may also have posters up in the pub and on the pumps that are serving locally brewed beers there will be LocAle pump clip crowners.

Many branches also list the pubs that have LocAle accreditation on their websites and in their local newsletter. You can find your local CAMRA branch via CAMRA Near You.
