As ever top quality information about our local pubs countrywide. I travel a lot & so this book lives with me so I can always get myself a pint or 2 (maybe more) of excellent real ale.

The local brewery section is very useful as I think it is essential for us to champion our small brewers..

Probably the best beer guide in the world. Not just another pub guide as this one also covers breweries and their beers. But only real ales as it is a CAMRA guide. The pubs section covers city and country pubs from Shetland to the Isles of Scilly.......and from east to west. Can promise you that you will not like all the pubs but the guide is full of hints like "live music" which kind of shows it will not be a quiet pub. Can also promise that you will find a pub selling good real ale not too far from home.

Well presented information on pubs serving decent beers, easily accessible via counties and supported by maps closely associated to the text.
Rarely has it let me down over the years I have been buying it.

Always take it with me when I travel out of my home area.

As a CAMRA member of over thity years it really annoys me that I can buy this via a third party for less than CAMRA will flog it to me- it's a CAMRA publication after all (was the same last year - wake up CAMRA).
Anyway, an essential purchase for anyone looking for GOOD BEER. This is NOT a guide to good food, luvverly ambience, attractive thatch or any other nonsense. An honest description is given ie; parking, bus routes, garden, noisy/quiet, food (Grrr)and an OS grid ref for out-in-the-sticks boozers. This is compiled by CAMRA members for no reward, no vested interests or industry back-handers.

I recently planned a trip to Hertfordshire, but not knowing the area - and being a fan of real ale - I wanted a pub/beer guide that was reliable and trustworthy. Having checked out a few of the market leaders - ie AA Good Pub Guide etc - I opted for the Camera Good Beer Guide. This was for a number of reason, the most important being the fact that this is the ONLY truly independent guide on the market. The pubs, beers, ales and ciders mentioned are all in the guide not because they have paid (as now the case with the AA Guide) but because they have all been checked out by independent personal.

Many of the checkers are members of Camera, and do the checking of various pubs on a voluntary basis (it is a tough job, but I guess someone has to do it!!!), and all pubs are subjected to a very - and I mean VERY! - stringent series of tests, and if just one is failed then that pub either does not get in, or if in can be removed. This means that any pub recommended meets the highest standards, and the beer/ale/cider served the best money can buy. The food, where served, is also subjected to the same critical standards so is guaranteed to be good quality nosh!

The details are superb, the layout easy to follow - county, town, pub all in alphabetical order, and the write-ups clear and concise. This is, to my why of thinking, the best guide there is and I would recommend it to any discerning beer drinker out there without hesitation!

If you are looking for a guide to good beer and a decent pub to drink it in

If you are a keen real ale drinker and want to know more about the various ales on sale in many of our pubs, this is the book you need. It gives you a good description on the types of different tastes that the hops, malts and barley contribute to the various ales. In the main section of the book, there is a guide to the brewers ales and what to expect in the way of taste, smell and aftertaste.

Although most of the time, you will visit the same pub for your usual pint or three, there is a pub guide for those who may be away from their usual 'haunt', which may come in very useful for those on holiday elsewhere in the UK.

However, there is one downside to this book, which will give you an idea of the extent of the guide as a whole. The book is heavy, weighing in at around 992 grams; almost a kilogram, so not the sort of guide you can carry with you in your pocket (unless it's the wife's coat pocket you keep it in).

Any serious ale drinker should not be without a copy of this excellent book, but for the visit to your own local, perhaps you might also want to buy a smaller pocket-sized book to look up the ales that you are not familiar with.
