Campaign for Real Ale

Branch Awards

OVERVIEW

Some of the most important decisions each year, for any CAMRA branch, are about selecting and celebrating the very best Real Ale pub, Cider pub, and Brewery in their branch area.

In North Devon we are spoilt for choice with well over three hundred pubs and a dozen or so breweries to choose from. We are lucky to have so much, of excellent quality, in North Devon.

Selecting the very best of the best to receive one of these prestigious awards is no easy task. However our branch enjoys working through the selection and judging processes to come up with our winning and highly commended choices.


Decision Process for Awards

The current process for deciding how a particular Pub, Club and Brewery is decided for receiving the North Devon CAMRA annual award, is currently under review. Details of any changes will be posted here and members informed of the process prior to any Awards being decided. One of our main aims is to be as transparent as possible so please keep an eye out for the changes that may take place.
