Campaign for Real Ale

Welcome to the Croydon & Sutton Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale


How good was that beer?

We can all usually tell a good beer from a bad one, but only a few members tell CAMRA what they think. That's a shame, because we need to know, and use the information to help choose which pubs go into the Good Beer Guide each year. It's a lot easier than you think to 'score' a beer and we'd love it if you would help by recording your scores. You don't need any particular expertise, so why not give it a go, next time you have some cask ale? More information is available on this page: Beer Scoring Scheme
