CAMRA Aberdeen, Grampian and Northern Isles Branch

Promoting Real Ale in the North East of Scotland



 The local Aberdeen, Grampian and N. Isles branch has a membership of around 400, and CAMRA nationally has a membership of over 190,000 real ale drinkers.

The branch target is to increase this further.  We all know real ale lovers who aren’t members of CAMRA – if we can each encourage a few to sign up, perhaps we can make this target.

 Life Membership Card

Seasonal Gift Membership

Why not get your loved one a one year CAMRA gift membership package; the package includes a monthly copy of the What’s Brewing newspaper, the quarterly BEER magazine and a discount on the latest best-selling CAMRA Good Beer Guide (currently the 2019 edition). This is the kind of present that they will be able to use all year round and will be forever grateful to you. The membership will only become live when it is activated and will be valid for a year and the recipient will have a chance to renew the membership at the end of the year.

The membership will give them 15% discount from National Express, £20 worth of Wetherspoons vouchers and discounts from some the UK’s best attractions such as Alton Towers, Legoland, Blackpool, Sealife and many more. See for more information on the benefits of becoming a CAMRA member.

There are a variety of packages available to suit the recipient. We have joint memberships, ideal for Christmas, wedding packages, or maybe a gift from the kids to the grandparents. We also offer deals for under 26s which can also be brought as a gift.

How can we contact you?

Every CAMRA member can keep their "My Membership" details up-to-date at the National CAMRA Website. Simply login with your membership number (which appears on your card), and update your membership details. A plea from our branch: PLEASE check we have both your correct Email address and snail mail address because it helps us to ensure we give all our members a chance to vote for pubs to enter into the Good Beer Guide.
