CAMRA's mission is to act as champion of the consumer in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry. It aims to:

CAMRA also seeks to promote real cider and perry through a sub-organisation called APPLE. Like ale, these are traditional British drinks and like ale, the traditional product is very different from the keg version.


Tayside Branch began back in 1975 and is one of 200 local CAMRA branches in the UK , covering an area of approximately  2,900 square miles. Taking in the two main cities of Perth and Dundee along with a number of outlying towns and villages.


As well as supporting CAMRA's national and local campaigns, the branch is trying to build up active social calendar. We also hold monthly meetings to discuss CAMRA business, always at a pub in the branch area.


All members are welcome to attend social events and branch meetings. For full details of upcoming meetings and events visit our Facebook page or keep visiting our website for updates.

Any CAMRA member wishing to join the committee is more than welcome. You do not need to take up a specific role to take part and how much you do is entirely up to you!

You don't need to be a committee member to come along to a branch meeting. All CAMRA members are welcome.

Revitalisation Project

The Revitalisation Project has proposed that the Campaign remains committed to its core aims of promoting real ale, real cider, perry and campaigning for pubs and clubs - but has suggested CAMRA needs to widen its vision and mission to reflect changing consumer needs and developments in the drinks industry.The Revitalisation Project has now agreed a series of proposals which it presented to CAMRA's National Executive - the most senior elected volunteers in the organisation - at a meeting in early December. The National Executive will now take ownership of the report and will be responsible for deciding whether, how and when, to implement the Revitalisation Project's proposals.

CAMRA members will continue to be fully involved in the process and will be invited to discuss the Revitalisation Project proposals at the CAMRA Members' Weekend and AGM to be held in Bournemouth in April 2017. A final decision on adopting the proposals will be taken at the Members' Weekend and AGM in Coventry 2018.
