The LocAle scheme was created by CAMRA in 2007 to help support local brewing traditions. The scheme brings with it a number of benefits for the pub, their customers, the local economy as well as the environment. A pub can be accredited to the scheme if they endeavour to ensure that at least one locally brewed real ale is on sale at all times and that the real ale is sold is of good quality. You can find out more by going to http://www.camra.org.uk/locale.
What do we mean by a "locally brewed real ale"? Because of the unique position of our branch, in the far South-Eastern tip of England, we are adopting the definition that a 'local' real ale is one that has been brewed by any Kent brewery.
