Welcome to Website of the Gwent  Campaign for Real Ale

Information  about the activities of your local Branch and items of interest to Beer lovers will be found here. Gwent Branch covers Blaenau Gwent, part of Caerphilly (the former Islwyn), Monmouthshire, Newport, and Torfaen.

Now that the nation is recovering from the effects of months of restrictions during the pandemic, pubs need your help to get them back on their feet and to continue providing the sort of service we know and love. Support your local Pub, and join CAMRA to contribute to its vital activities! Visit the Get Involved Page for contacts.

WhatPub logoWhatPub logoThe official CAMRA pubs website, "WhatPub" is now available to both members and non-members. CAMRA members can log in using your Id and Password, whilst non-members can supply new info via the feedback form in WhatPub which will be posted to a database manager to action or acknowledge. It is highly likely that the details on WhatPub are somewhat out of date, and now we are once more able to visit pubs it is important to update these details as soon as possible.

Members can update WhatPub using the Pubzilla back end. If you are not conversant in Pubzilla please send updates to a Committee member for processing.
