Calling all Calderdale Beer Lovers

The Small Brewers Relief scheme (SBR) petition has now closed. A big thank you to our members for signing the petition.

The SBR is being reviewed by the Government, and their current
preferred approach could see some of the smallest breweries lose support they currently receive.

CAMRA has been asking the Government to rethink their approach and the technical consultation may be our last chance to convince them.

In January, the Government started the latest technical consultation on their proposed changes.

While the full consultation asks some very technical questions, this doesn’t stop individuals, brewers or organisations from submitting responses that give views on specific parts of the proposals rather than completing the whole consultation.

Responses to the SBR technical consultation can be submitted up until 23.59 on 4 April.

A campaign pack with a briefing, ideas for how to get involved, a template consultation response, digital assets and template social media is available here.
