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.

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..

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.

The best guide to pubs there is. Every year myself and friends organise days out based on the guide, very rarely lets us down.

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.

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.
