Dronfield & District CAMRA has attained full branch status. Formed in 2012 as a sub-branch of Sheffield CAMRA, with pubs in Apperknowle, Unstone, Sheepbridge, Troway, Millthorpe, Barlow  transferred from Sheffield and Chesterfield branches as appropriate, Dronfield CAMRA has quickly evolved into a lively active CAMRA group hosting a variety of social events and campaigning for pubs and cask ale, with plans for further development of the branch to follow.

Dronfield and the surrounding areas are fortunate enough to have a number of good pubs serving strong ranges of cask ale, and in addition is now home to Hopjacker Brewery at the Dronfield Arms and is soon to be home to the local community brewery Drone Valley. The previous winners of the Dronfield & District Pub Of The Year are as follows

2013 – Three Tuns in Dronfield (The Three Tuns also went on to win Derbyshire CAMRA pub of the year in 2013)

2014 – Travellers Rest in Apperknowle

2015 – Travellers Rest in Apperknowle

2016 – Miners Arms in Hundall

Dronfield CAMRA branch meets on the second Tuesday of each month.
