This is the website of Southport & West Lancs CAMRA. We cover the areas in Lancashire and Merseyside from Mere Brow to the north of Southport, Ormskirk, Westhead and Aughton to the east and Freshfield, Hightown and Formby to the south. We are blessed with many fine pubs in our area serving an excellent variety of cask conditioned ales.
This site is currently being migrated to the new design preferred by CAMRA HQ using the "Beer Engine" utility. This provides a common "look & feel" for all CAMRA web sites while still allowing branches to put their own individual flavour on their pages. It also allows each individual branch officer to maintain the pages relevant to them. The transition should be completed well before the end of the year. As a consequence of this only essential information will be updated here. A case in point is the upcoming beer festival details of which can be found on the beer festival page accessed from the drop down menu top left.

Its 10 YEARS since the first barrel rolled out of the Southport Brewery
The branch awards certificates to pubs in the area that are supporting the national campaign to promote local breweries. As the area to the west of us is sea we have expanded the area to the east so that any brewery within thirty five miles by road is in scope to the scheme. See the Locale page for details..
