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
Image of 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.
