CAMRA is overhauling its voucher scheme this summer to help make pub-going more affordable for members.
From 1st of July, CAMRA members will receive £30 worth of vouchers, each worth 50p off a pint. These vouchers will replace the traditional Wetherspoons partnership to cover over 1,400 pubs nationwide across four pub chains.
Redeemable at the point of renewal, the vouchers will cover pints poured at:
J D Wetherspoon (880 pubs nationwide)
Stonegate Pub Company, which boast over 480 pubs (real ale hand pulls only)
S.A. Brains (discount applies to Brains beers only), a managed pub estate of 100 pubs based in Wales
Castle Rock Brewery, 23 pubs based in the Nottingham area
The re-launch of CAMRA’s voucher scheme aims to make pub-going a more affordable activity for consumers while helping to raise the profile and footfall at participating venues. It coincides with the #SummerofPub campaign to support the pub trade over the warmer months.
CAMRA is also expanding its Real Ale Discount Scheme to cover 3,000 individual pubs across the country. Due to their independence, these pubs by nature can’t fall under a blanket voucher scheme, but they have agreed to offer discounts to CAMRA members based on what works for them – whether that be a free pint on a Monday or 10% off on pints pulled.
Participating pubs can be found by visiting camra.org.uk/vouchers and searching for a pub by postcode, and CAMRA is encouraging more independent pubs and pub chains to get involved.
Nik Antona, CAMRA’s National Chairman, said: “We are very grateful that these companies have approached us to help them ensure that pub-going remains an affordable activity. By offering vouchers at pub chains and discounts throughout independent pubs, we aim to support a wider range of pubs by driving footfall.
“Regular pub visits can be an expensive activity for many of us, and we hope that by partnering with more pubs both large and small we can help get people out to their local throughout this Summer of Pub and beyond.”
