CAMRA LocAle
What is CAMRA LocAle?
The logo of LocAle
CAMRA LocAle is an initiative that promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale.
The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of ‘green’ issues.
The Dambusters Inn enthusiastically supports this admirable initiative by the Lincoln Branch of CAMRA, launched at the 2009 Lincoln Beer Festival. The scheme features breweries located within twenty-five miles of the Dambusters Inn.

CAMRA’s GOOD BEER GUIDE 2018 - Published on Thursday, 14th September 2017
CAMRA’s GOOD BEER GUIDE 2018Edited by Roger Protz, in the 2018 Edition of the Guide — the 45th Edition — the listing for the Dambusters Inn reads:
This feels like walking into a working World War II museum, full of memorabilia.
The bar proudly displays seven real ales, three of which Greg brews in the on-site brewery.
The pub is named after the famous RAF 617 squadron at Scampton, now home to the Red Arrows, who can often be seen flying over.
An annual beer festival is held in May, commemorating the Dambuster raid; 2018 is the raid’s 75th anniversary.
Oh — do pop into the loos!
. . . Well, there you have it. And the image of the Guide Book above is linked to CAMRA’s website and more information.

And a golden opportunity to meet The Red Arrows Pilot
Portrait of  Flight Lieutenant Mike Bowden, Pilot, RAF Red Arrows, 2018.
MIKE BOWDEN BSc
Flight Lieutenant Mike Bowden Currently flies the Hawk fast-jet, Red 9 in The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows
Mike will give the Talk on the evening of Wednesday, 28th. February 2018 in the informal atmosphere of the Dambusters Inn
He expects to begin at seven o'clock ( or maybe just a little bit after that . . . )
The Running Time for the Talk will be approximately one hour
Mike will be very happy to answer QUESTIONS afterwards
And for Aviation enthusiasts - among others - Mike hopes that if there are any left, he may be able to bring along a few of the LIMITED EDITION 2017 RED ARROWS PRINTS ( for sale at very modest cost ). These Prints, signed by each Pilot in the RED ARROWS TEAM are made for restricted distribution only, so that an opportunity to purchase one will be something of a privilege for some lucky members in his audience.
You can read lots more about Mike and the Red Arrows Aerobatic Team if you visit the RED ARROWS WEBSITE
So we look forward to providing a very warm welcome for Flight Lieutenant Mike Bowden's evening in the Dambusters Inn.
