A warm welcome to the website of Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale. Geographically, our branch is located in South West Scotland and covers an area of approximately 1600 square miles (4185 km²)
Currently, we have more than 630 members who are passionate about pub-going and real ale, while having fun at the same time. We are a very active branch with regular social activities and a successful festival which is held in early October each year. In addition, we publish a multi-award winning branch magazine called Full Pints with issues printed and distributed quarterly.
Please have a look around our website or better still come and join us in a pub for a beer or two.
Face to Face Meetings Are Back
At long last, restrictions have been eased to the point where CAMRA members can once more gather together over a few pints and socialise. We particularly want to encourage those who have felt isolated over the past eighteen months to come and join in, make new friends and have a good old blether. Pubs and clubs have endured a particularly difficult time and as an organisation, we feel it is extremely important to lend them as much support as we can.
Champion Beer of Britain (CBOB)
Voting for potential CBOB entries will open on Wednesday, 1 September. The process will run until midnight on 31 October. To vote, click here.
Area socials are starting up again. There is a South Ayrshire social on Tuesday, 21 September at the West Kirk in Ayr at 14:00. An East Ayrshire social will be held in the First Edition, Kilmarnock on Wednesday, 29 September at 19:30.
A full branch social is taking place at the Glen Park Hotel on Saturday, 25 September starting at 14:00.
