CAMRA is only too aware that beer styles in the UK aren't static. You only have to look at the growth of American Pale Ales, Golden Ales and foreign beer styles such as Sours to be aware of what a great time it is to be a beer drinker. To reflect these changes, but also to continue to campaign for endangered traditional beers, CAMRA has reviewed the styles and categories they will be using for judging the prestigious Champion Beer of Britain from next year.


This session will help you to understand the new styles so that you can decide which style category a beer should  be put in.

This is an activity for members attending CAMRA's Members' Weekend & Conference and takes place just before registration. 

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Explain why we have beer styles
  • Distinguish between different beers and allocate them to the new beer style categories

 In line with CAMRA’s New Styles

We will cover:

  • Why we have beer styles
  • The new beer styles and the reason for the changes
  • Taste 5 beers and allocate them to the new styles

The session will finish no later than 3.30pm.

We regret that as we have to purchase beer in advance, tickets are not refundable but feel free to pass them onto a third party.
