CAMRA LocAleCAMRA LocAle is an accreditation scheme to promote pubs that sell locally-brewed real ale.

The aim is to recude the miles the beer travels from brewery to bar.

The scheme builds on a growing demand for high quality local produce and an increased awareness of 'green' issues.

Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale: -

In the South Bedfordshire branch, we've identified several breweries which we deem local enough to qualify for LocAle accreditation: -

Ampthill Brewhouse B&T, Shefford Chiltern Brewery, nr Wendover
Concrete Cow Brewery, Milton Keynes Hornes Brewery, Bow Brickhill Haresfoot Brewery, Berkhamsted
Leighton Buzzard Mad Squirrel, Potten End Rockhopper Brewery, Luton
Tring Brewery Vale, Brill White Park, Cranfield

Look out for the window-stickers and pump-clip headers identifying locally-brewed ale in local pubs serving beers from these breweries.
