The Campaign for Real Ale, which runs over 180 local beer festivals across the country, has cancelled all events – including local beer festivals – planned between now and the end of June following recent government advice on mass gathering. All physical events, festivals and meetings, from branch to national levels, have been cancelled for an initial three-month period, with further cancellations to be considered regularly as the situation evolves.

Real ale is a type of beer defined by its traditional production.
Also known as "cask conditioned" beer; the fundamental distinction between real and other ales is that the yeast is still present in the container from which the beer is served, although it will have settled to the bottom and is not poured into the glass.
Because the yeast is still alive, the process of fermentation continues in the cask or bottle on the way to the consumer ensuring a fresh and natural taste.
CAMRA is a unique independent consumer organisation, run by our members. We're a not for profit body run locally and nationally by elected, unpaid volunteers. We aim to maintain consumer rights, promote quality, choice and value for money, support the public house and campaign for greater appreciation of traditional beers, ciders and perries.
