Here at Capital we know real ale inside out. We love it just as much as you and we’re completely behind the thinking and ethos of the Campaign for Real Ale brand. We want to see it survive and flourish in your area just like all your branch members do.
It is for this reason that CAMRA branches across the UK trust Capital to produce their magazines and newsletters, print their marketing material or produce local guides and ale trails. Our service is unique, flexible and tailored to each branch. Here’s why:
Case Study: Lunesdale Drinker
Communications with the firm are excellent – particularly important in the key periods of planning and producing an edition. They clearly value genuine engagement with CAMRA members and understand the specific issues affecting pubs and the trade generally. I have been particularly impressed with the way they so clearly identify with the CAMRA ethos, which is valuable when it comes to discussing editorial copy. They also believe in the personal touch; at each stage of the process we deal with sympathetic individuals rather than a faceless organisation.
The finished product is really impressive and has been universally welcomed and praised. Distributing the new-look Drinker to our pubs gives one a real “lift” because of the way it is received and for the positive image it projects of the branch. Prior to our involvement with a media organisation we were hesitant about involving “outsiders”, but I am delighted to wholeheartedly recommend Capital Media to other CAMRA branches. Now they are very much “insiders,” with whom I anticipate a long and mutually rewarding relationship.”

I would say that the quality of our publication has dramatically improved, to the extent that we have grown both the page count and circulation quantity. The production is now cost-neutral but this is more than offset by the improvements made to many aspects of the magazine. It’s delivered on-time, usually an issue we struggled with when we handled it in-house. Capital’s communications are good and I am impressed by their creative skills. I would recommend Capital Media as valued partner for CAMRA magazine production.
