A group which has championed real ale since it was set up in 1971 could change its name and focus on other campaigns.

The Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) is consulting its 177,000 members under a review, and could widen its remit to campaign on issues such as pub heritage and foreign beer.

Michael Hardman, one of Camra’s founders, said: “This could mark a fundamental turning point for the Campaign for Real Ale.

“So fundamental, it may no longer continue as the Campaign for Real Ale and instead become a campaign for pubs, or a campaign for all drinkers.”

A decision will be made in April next year.
