LocAle is a CAMRA initiative aiming to recognise and promote those pubs who support local brewers by selling locally brewed beers. Any pub that has at least one good quality locally-produced real ale available at all times can be accredited by its local CAMRA branch. Our branch defines “LocAle” as beer brewed within 20 miles of the pub by road.
Currently we have 117 LocAle accredited pubs in the Sheffield & District region, but our recent Beer Census indicated that there could be at least 44 more eligible pubs out there. We are looking to make sure that every pub that could be LocAle accredited is so, so that we can maximise support for local ale and the people who make and sell it.
If your local always has at least one local real ale available, we encourage you to urge the licensee to get in touch with the branch committee. Contact details can be found on our website or at the back of the magazine.
