Doncaster CAMRA

Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 170,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for drinkers everywhere in fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, and in attempting to improve beer quality and to ensure pub standards are raised.

Our branch covers all of the Doncaster area as well as the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire as far as Goole and a small area of North Yorkshire. New members are always welcome either at branch events, including the Annual Beer Festival - either visiting or volunteering.

You can also help 'rate' your local pub using the National Beer Scoring System - you can do this by logging in through WhatPub.

Passionate about beer in Doncaster? We are!


#DN1BeerFest will be returning to town centre pubs once again later this year.  From 26 to 29 November, we are are hoping as many pubs in the DN1 area will join together to turn the town into one big festival!

National Beer Scoring System

The National Beer Scoring System (NBSS) is a 0-5 (0 = no cask ale available) point scale for judging beer quality in pubs. It is an easy to use system that has been designed to assist CAMRA branches in selecting pubs for the Good Beer Guide and also monitor beer quality by encouraging CAMRA members from any part of the world to report beer quality on any pub in the UK.

What information is required to register a score?

  • Your name and membership number
  • The date you visited the pub
  • Name of the pub
  • Where the pub is located
  • A score out of 5
  • The name of the beer

For further details check out the national CAMRA website.


Join us

Despite many successes over the years, CAMRA is needed more today than ever before. Large international corporations now dominate the brewing industry and most of our pubs are owned by big Pub Companies who treat them as a financial asset rather than the centre of the community.

Membership brings many benefits such as discounts on a range of books and other products and reduced entry to CAMRA beer festivals, plus the informative monthly newspaper What’s Brewing. But the real benefit is knowing you are supporting a good cause and having fun into the bargain.

If you would like to become a member, you can use one of the following methods:

  • Click here to join CAMRA online
  • To receive an application form by post, email our Membership Secretary
  • Simply come along to one of our branch activities or meetings. We’ll be delighted to see you.
