LocAle Accreditation Scheme 
CAMRA's Locale Accreditation Scheme is simply about local people enjoying local beers in local pubs. We feel that publicans rightfully deserve to be acknowledged for serving beers from local breweries in their pubs and clubs.
Rather than having to be nominated by CAMRA members, we feel it is fairer and more transparent that publicans should be able to nominate their own pubs, subject to scrutiny of course. After all, it is the publicans that are making the commitment of stocking and serving local ales to an acceptable level of quality.
Using pre-defined criteria, Wigan CAMRA have agreed upon 27 breweries (see below) that satisfy LocAle requirements. We feel that this provides publicans with plenty of scope in choosing their LocAle beers.
