Brighton & South Downs CAMRA
CAMRA stands for The Campaign for Real Ale, a British consumer organisation founded 1973 to campaign for the quality of traditional British beers. This now includes good pubs and traditional cider & perry. It has local branches all over Britain and the Brighton & South Downs Branch is one of the five branches covering the County of 'Sussex' (i.e. East & West Sussex).

BRIGHTON & SOUTH DOWNS CAMpaign for Real Ale
Over 1,670 CAMRA members live in our Branch area, which is Brighton & Hove, Lewes, Newhaven, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Shoreham-by-Sea and the area in between. So what do we do, apart from drink beer and run this website?
8. Liaise with and report on the several and increasing number of Breweries
on our patch to CAMRA headquarters, and put their news in the
'Bru News' section of Sussex Drinker.
9. Run a Summer ALE TRAIL and its associated 'Cider Rider' - will be from May to October 2014 around our area, with prizes for visiting 20, 30 or 40 pubs.
10. Compile a database of local pubs... to feed into CAMRA's WHAT PUB? The Summer ALE TRAIL page lists the 40 participating real ale pubs which were on it and for other recommendations look in CAMRA's current Good Beer Guide.
