Why I am buying a special edition Good Beer Guide

Having written nearly twenty beer and pub guides in my time I am painfully aware that their second-hand value is not very high. The hardback edition of the 50th Anniversary Good Beer Guide is likely to break that pattern and become a great investment. With the print run limited to advanced sales only and aimed at CAMRA members and GBBF customers, demand is virtually guaranteed to outstrip supply, as there will be fewer copies available to book collectors. Just as importantly, because the hardback edition will be sold only at full price and by direct sale, rather than at a deep discount, the Campaign will make considerably more money per copy from the collector’s edition than the regular one. It seems to me a brilliant idea that benefits both the buyer and the seller. Well done CAMRA

COVID delayed this book by two years and necessitated a thorough rewrite, to account for the damage inflicted by the virus and more significantly by the restrictions it spawned. The updates brought a heady mix of sadness for those pubs, bars and cafés that did not make it through, and delight at those that have survived.

Modern British Beer

by Matthew Curtis

“Matthew Curtis has written an inspirational book, one no beer lover should miss.” Roger Protz

Modern British Beer aims to highlight the cultural development of beer in the United Kingdom since the turn of the century, while also attempting to define what “modern” means in today’s beer culture. The first-person narrative will be told through the stories of approximately 80 different beers and the brewers who make them, focussing on how their influence has directly affected our choice at the bar.

“A beauty and a triumph… An incredibly engaging read.” — Claire Bullen, Editor-in-Chief Good Beer Hunting

“A sparkling sense of where beer in the UK is at the moment.” — Adrian Tierney-Jones

“If you’re looking for a primer on the best independently-produced British beers available today, you’re in luck.” — Will Hawkes

“UK brewing is at a crossroads and the definitions Matthew comes up with help illuminate the path forward.” – Jonny Garrett, The Craft Beer Channel
