Doncaster CAMRA
Introduction

Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 170,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for drinkers everywhere in fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, and in attempting to improve beer quality and to ensure pub standards are raised.

Our branch covers all of the Doncaster area as well as the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire as far as Goole and a small area of North Yorkshire.

New members are always welcome either at branch events, including the Annual Beer Festival - either visiting or volunteering.

You can also help 'rate' your local pub using the National Beer Scoring System - you can do this by logging in through WhatPub.
