Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
2010 update: A must-buy purchase again this year. This guide never fails to deliver.

My husband has every edition of this guide, and used to contribute to the reviews of our local pubs until recently. Lots of CAMRA volunteers each year are needed to survey the real ales of over 4,000 pubs committed to preserving our nation's beer heritage. Well, someone has to do it.

What results is an independent, definitive guide to the nation's pubs serving real ale. It's good for finding a pub locally that you've not tried before and comes into its own on holiday and weekends, when you're new to an area and need to find a decent pub fast.

In addition to the details of the beer served, the guide will tell you whether it's quiet pub, has a real fire, when it serves food, if it has accommodation and a host of other details in addition to a thumbnail sketch of each venue. A separate section provides information on each real ale brewery and beers, complete with tasting notes.

One to keep to hand throughout the year.

I have bought this guide every yeat since '96 and it is still the best guide you can buy. This is not a pub guide but a beer guide, the logic being that a landlord who looks after their beer makes sure everything else falls into place. It is also a surprisingly interesting read (really!) and I don't go away without it.

Format: Paperback
By far the best pub guide for the UK, easy to use good info on the pubs, maps for inner city locations, and above all details on what guest and house ales are on offer in each. I've found many a brilliant pub using this guide and its predecessors and hopefully I will continue to.

The only bad thing about it is that its not exactly pocketable, make sure you decide which pubs you're going to visit before you head out, because you probably won't want to take this with you.

A CAMRA production. CAMRA= Campaign For Real Ale.
If your partner is into Real Ale this is the ESSENTIAL book for them! It lists local CAMRA groups' choice of pubs that sell Real Ale to a high quality.From all these local groups a county by county list of pubs is assembled for England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and The Isle of Man.
I regularly consult my GBG at least twice a week and I find it really useful when visiting a new place. Sometimes the choice of pubs is "interesting", especially when you take a group of friends on a GBG pub crawl of a city or town. It always leads to a good debate as to why some choices are made. If you wish to take your partner to "somewhere different", this is the book for you!
I think of my Good Beer Guide as a sort of "Michelin Guide" of pubs!
It lists each pub under LOCALITY, PUB NAME, ADDRESS, OPENING HOURS, TELEPHONE NUMBER, DRAUGHT BEER AVAILABLE IN RISING ORDER OF STRENGTH AND DISPENSE METHOD. There is a really useful set of Symbols listed. The key to these symbols can be found inside the front cover.
In conclusion, if your partner loves Real Ale and you you love him/her, then this is the PERFECT present!

I have been buying the Good Beer Guide every year for many years now and it is always the best of the many guides available. It is written and reviewed by the Campaign for Real Ale, with reviews by the local CAMRA branches, so they know what they are talking about, having all the local knowledge and they keep it up to date. I have used the guide over many years in many parts of the country and it has not let me down; all types of pub are listed, from twee country pubs to back street boozers, so make sure you read the information in the listing if you are taking your mother out for Sunday lunch! The other thing you can guarantee is that the beer and cider will always be good - what else would you expect from CAMRA. I even use the guide when I am going away for a few nights - the listings include pubs offering accomodation and I have not been disappointed when I have used them. All in all, the best of the pub guides and the only one you will ever need.

This is a good deal on the Good Beer Guide. Buy it and support Camra. Our pubs are closing and we need a great support organisation like CAMRA who try to prevent the ruination of a great British tradition. This is a great guide which you will enjoy exploring with. Buy the book and join CAMRA. You won't regret either.

This is not the first edition of the Good Beer Guide I have had, and it will not be the last. All those years I wandered about trying to find a decent pub with beer that I could drink, and what was needed was this guide. Even better, download it into your Satnav! Staying in a strange hotel, a couple of taps of the screen and you have the location, name and route to a decent pint! I'm sorry, but what is there not to like about this?
The real question is, how many pubs can you visit which score a perfect ten out of ten? Last year I found two, plus a whole host of pubs scoring nine and half out of ten. Without the Good Beer Guide I wouldn't have found any of them.

By the way the Star System at the top of this page is wrong, I scored this book six Stars for "I have a copy perminantly welded to me at all times, that's how much I love this book, if I big enough arms I would have it tatooed on them".
