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.

What's On!

Online Tasting Social

We are holding an online tasting social during the evening of Saturday, 24th April at 8 pm.

Participants will order a case of beers from Letherbritches Brewery. This brewery has been chosen because they offer a mixed case of bottle conditioned beers (10 different beers with 2 being duplicated), their ordering procedure seems straightforward and their pricing is very reasonable (£28 per case + £4.99 p&p, equating to £2.75 per bottle).

During the social, we will all sample the same 3 or 4 beers and have a chat about them.  Note, it will not be a tutored tasting, much less formal than that.  Participants can then decide what they wish to do with the remainder of their case, i.e. repeat the social at a later date or simply finish off the beers at their leisure.
