CAMRA is divided across the whole of the UK into Regions; these Regions are then split up into individual Branches. Barnsley Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is in the Yorkshire Region, within the administrative county of South Yorkshire, and is one of four branches in that area. Barnsley's Membership has now reached over 552 (March 2016).

The aim of the Barnsley CAMRA website is to give the reader information on the activities of the branch as well as news on beer, pubs and events in our area. We hold regular branch meetings, trips to pubs and breweries and other social events. We are part of a national organisation that aims to promote real ale and cider, as well as preserve the traditional British Pub. Nationally, the campaign as of March 2016 stands at 177,300 members and is growing month on month.

Our branch have held a number of
Beer Festivals during different times of the year, our main festivals are held in May at Elsecar Heritage Railway and September at Elsecars Milton Hall.
