  • A free Branch coach trip for new members joining the Branch
  • Priority booking for the sell out Liverpool Beer Festival
  • Reduced ticket price on Branch coach trips, saving £3 for members compared with non members.

Membership of CAMRA branches is based on your post code, but you can join any CAMRA branch you wish to. Just contact the CAMRA Membership Team by phoning 08450 727 807 or visit and let them know which branch you want to join.

Membership rates for individuals are £23, and for joint membership £28, which includes the discount for payment by direct debit. Other payment methods cost an additional £2.

There are also Life Membership rates.
There are generous concessionary rates, details on These include concessions for under 26 year olds £15.50; over 60s £15.50. There is also a concession rate of £15.50 for people with a disability, but this is not mentioned on the website, so phone the Membership Team to obtain this.

JD Wetherspoon has kindly agreed to supply all new and renewing members £20 worth of JD Wetherspoon real ale vouchers as part of their CAMRA membership package! 

The vouchers will be sent to you in the post automatically when you join CAMRA or renew your membership (whether by cash or DD payments). Members will have approximately a year to spend all of their vouchers. The vouchers are split into 4 sheets of ‘50p off a pint units', with each sheet having a 3 month deadline. Only one 50p off a pint voucher can be used per visit. 

There are two reasons for these conditions -

  1. CAMRA promotes responsible drinking and if we supplied £20 worth of vouchers that could be used in one visit to the pub, then this could be seen to not support this policy.
  2. This offer is obviously very generous from JD Wetherspoon and they feel this scheme will encourage people to visit a number of their fantastic pubs across the UK throughout the 12 month's of their CAMRA membership.

The idea of this added benefit is very simple and good fun. Put the vouchers in your wallet / purse and use them when you are near a JD Wetherspoon pub and fancy a nice pint of cool real ale! 

Please note: 

Joint CAMRA memberships will receive only one set of vouchers to share.

Who are CAMRA

Before delving into the specifics of beer and pubs in Liverpool a note on CAMRA and it's aims.....

CAMRA campaigns for real ale, real pubs and consumer rights. We are an independent, voluntary organisation with over 179,000 members and have been described as the most successful consumer group in Europe. CAMRA promotes good-quality real ale and pubs, as well as acting as the consumer's champion in relation to the UK and European beer and drinks industry. CAMRA has four key aims: 

  • Stop tax killing beer and pubs
  • Secure an effective government support package for pubs
  • Encourage more people to try a range of real ales, ciders and perries
  • To raise the profile of pub-going and increase the number of people using pubs regularly
