Essex camra org uk
It is one of several branches covering the County of Essex.
CAMRA is an independent, voluntary, consumer organisation which campaigns for real ale, real cider & perry, real pubs and consumer rights.
As these meetings are held in either a pub or club, there are many opportunities to sample the ales on offer during the frequent beer breaks. You do not have to be a member to attend our branch meetings so why not come along to one. Social activities: Pub-crawls and coach trips, which can either be local or to places outside of our branch, and revolve around beer or cider and perry.
Other activities that we hold are social meetings at particular events such as the "Great British Beer Festival", the occasional quiz night and a Christmas social.
The North West Essex Branch Pub of the Year 2017 is: The Red Lion, Fowes Lane, Belchamp Otten, Essex, CO10 7BQ.
There will be the presentation to the Red Lion, on Monday 20 March 2017, at 8pm.
For further information, please see the Branch Diary.
CAMRA objectives: The threat of pub and brewery closure, the high rate of duty levied on beer, the reality that nine out of ten pints sold in Britain contain less than 100% liquid, all give cause for concern.
We are the South East Essex branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, set up in 1974 to pursue CAMRA's objectives at a local level.
Our Branch Town Pub of the Year 2017 is: The Kings Arms, Market Hill, Saffron Walden, Essex, CB10 1HQ.
There will be the presentation to the Kings Arms, on Thursday 23 March 2017, at 7.30pm.
In early October each year we also run a beer and cider festival in South Woodham Ferrers.
We are the home of four noted micro- breweries - Crouch Vale, Maldon Brewing Co. Our four breweries have won multiple awards & further details of these can be found under our “Breweries” section.
