With the Good Beer Guide to hand, you're never far from a decent pint!
Now in its 40th year, the Good Beer Guide is fully revised and updated and contains details of more than 4,500 pubs across the country serving the best real ale.
From country inns to urban style bars and backstreet boozers, all selected and reviewed by over 142,000 CAMRA members, this is your definitive guide to finding the perfect pint. The Good Beer Guide is completely independent. There are no entry fees for listings, and every pub is checked many times a year by discerning local CAMRA members. This 40th edition of the best-selling beer and pub guide also contains information on over 1000 breweries & brewing companies operating in the UK today. The Guide reports 158 new breweries have opened in the last 12 months alone, a record-shattering number and the highest annual total in the Guide’s 40 year history. Taking the total number of UK brewers in the Guide to 1009.
It is the first time since the 1930’s that over 1000 breweries have been in commercial operation in the UK. This astounding figure is five times more breweries than there were in operation 30 years ago, four times more than there were 20 years ago, and more than twice as many as there were a decade ago!
The production of the Good Beer Guide is only possible thanks to the efforts of CAMRA’s membership who exhaustively collate and evaluate every entry in the Guide and are constantly looking to promote great real ale and the pubs that serve it. This is illustrated this year by over 1000 new pub entries appearing in the Guide that were not listed last year.
When asked what made the pub listings so unique Good Beer Guide editor, Roger Protz said:
‘One of the most under-publicised aspects of the Guide is that it is the result of constant pub surveying by CAMRA’s dedicated members over the course of a year, so in many ways this fortieth anniversary is testament to the tireless work of countless unpaid volunteers across the country who give up their time to champion great pubs, whether situated on a city centre high street, suburban street corner, or in a small hamlet. Everyone in the CAMRA Publications team thanks the members and we’re sure they will keep up the good work for the next edition and the 39 after that!’
