The local brewery section is very useful as I think it is essential for us to champion our small brewers..
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.
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.
More work needs to be done for this to be a usefull alternative at present i would not recomend it & will now return to the paper version for the nexti
Main problem is the lag between compilation and production. This year I suspect a number of great pubs have fallen by the wayside due to the widespread floods. I known for example that Moyles pub in Hebden Bridge has not yet reopened since the summer floods.
However if you like real ale and step off your local patch this is the essential guide you need.
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.

Brilliant, until I discovered that you could download it onto your mobile phone for about a third of the price, and that makes it a lot easier to carry!Published on 14 July 2014 by D. J. Charnock
