CAMRA's mission

CAMRA's mission is to act as champion of the consumer in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry. It aims to:

  • Maintain consumer rights
  • Promote quality, choice and value for money
  • Support the public house as a focus of community life
  • Campaign for greater appreciation of traditional beers, ciders and perries as part of national heritage and culture
  • Seek improvements in all licensed premises and throughout the brewing industry

CAMRA also seeks to promote real cider and perry through a sub-organisation called APPLE. Like ale, these are traditional British drinks and like ale, the traditional product is very different from the dead version.
