The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) attempts to define real ale on its website.
How to tag
To add more detail, there is no fixed standard but a couple of approaches that are common include:
- Tag the number of ales the pub serves, e.g. real_ale=3 - this is a good indicator of how much variety is available, or how "dedicated" to real ale the pub is.
- Tag the names of the ales or the breweries the pub serves, e.g. real_ale=Courage Best, Hyde's. Please note that the exact list of real ales that a pub serves can change regularly (and seasonally), so a list of the exact ale names may be likely to go out-of-date quickly.
