CAMRA Agrees Changes at AGM

News: April 2018

The annual general meeting of the Campaign for Real Ale has approved a number of measures designed to make the organisation more relevant to today’s beer market.

Following the meeting, CAMRA will no longer oppose the use of cask breathers – devices that allow sterile gas into a cask at atmospheric pressure to prevent the ingress of harmful oxygen – and will allow the sale of other types of beers – including craft keg – at its beer festivals. CAMRA also passed policies on equality and diversity in the industry and rejected a call to campaign to reduce Small Brewery Duty Relief.

However, members stopped short of changing the core objective of the organisation. It will continue to further the case only for real ale – cask- and bottle-conditioned beer – cider and perry, despite calls for it to widen its remit to campaign for all types of good beer and to represent the interests of all pub users.
