5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for every beer lover 30 Oct 2006
I can't believe I'm the first person to review this book, surely other people must find it as indispensible as I do?

What can I say? It's great/fab/useful/unbiassed/independent...

If you like real ale and you don't buy a copy of this book every year you are either going to miss out on a fantastic pub you don't know about or you're going to trek miles to visit a pub that's closed or been refurbished as a "family-friendly bar and eaterie". Pubs do change that quickly and that's why you have to admire an organisation that manages to use its membership to resurvey the entire country and publish a guide every year.

Add to that attention to detail the talents of renown author/writer Roger Protz as editor and these books continue to shine above the rest.

Buy a copy now, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm with Oz! 28 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Oz Clarke is not the only one who considers this to be an essential part of packing for a trip around Britain.
This year's edition is much improved with two colours on the guide pages making it easier to read. The coloured maps are good as well giving everything a cleaner look.
The fantastic section that lists all Britain's breweries is so helpful. Quite often I find I can visit a local brewery as well as a few pubs in an area. Well worth looking to find out.
I think what really makes this book for me is that I know that the pubs have been selected by the local drinkers - not the editor. It always worries me when you see a guidebook to hundreds of pubs or hotels or B&Bs and only one person decided which to include - how on earth can one person visit all those places in a reasonable timescale to make the book valid?
If you only buy one guide to pubs this year make sure it's this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only reliable guide to Britain's pubs 6 Aug 2007
By far the best guide to Britain's pubs for the simple reason that all surveying is undertaken by volunteers - there is no charge for entry unlike some lesser pub guides. Moreover, each pub is visited at many times throughout the year, not just on one pre-arranged visit. Not without flaws but with each passing year a more and more reliable guide. To me it's something of a bible.

Beer! The preserve of bearded men with pot bellies, served with lots of unidentifiable floating bits, in a smoky pub? How wrong the stereotype is. In our cool Northern European climate beer is our traditional drink. As varied and as interesting as wine; sometimes light and smooth, often amber and bitter, but also sweet potent and powerful, those who dismiss it haven't ever really tried it. Here is a book that will guide you to an understanding and appreciation of beer. Wherever you are; waiting for a train, on the way to a theatre, on holiday, or planning a night out, this book will make a pub serving good beer easy to find.
Celebrating its thirtieth edition, the Good Beer Guide remains the ultimate reference work for those who are interested in that difficult combination - good beer and a good pub. This is not a run of the mill pub guide with the usual emphasis on inglenooks, beams and extensive food menus. True the reader will find plenty of classic country inns with horse brasses and fireplaces, but also many excellent urban hostelries ranging from basic back street locals to sophisticated brew pubs and specialist ale houses.
The common factor uniting this disparate and eclectic collection is beer. Good Beer Guide listed pubs all serve cask conditioned beer ('Real Ale'), with the choice ranging from a couple of ales to well into double figures. Consistently excellent beer quality is the overriding qualification for entry rather than the building, landlord or services offered, after all there is little point in sitting in a pretty pub with a choice of a dozen ales which are all stale and flat. That said those that receive the accolade of an entry tend to be vibrant and interesting places.

If you're passionate about real ale and pubs with real atmosphere, and have a sense of adventure to go that extra mile to visit somewhere different, this book should be an immediate buy. The carefully written individual pub descriptions allow you to refine your selection to a place likely to suit your particular needs, whether it be a town centre bustling local, an ancient inn with roaring fire or perhaps a rural gem serving a local brew direct from the cask.
This guide has two primary aims, firstly to showcase the finest real ale outlets in the country and secondly to provide details of all brewers and their beers with detailed tasting notes where available. The pub reviews are carefully compiled by groups of local enthusiasts around the country ensuring that only the best are included and these lists are reviewed and revised annually.
Clearly the best, most up to date and thorough guide to good pubs serving real ale.
