The Good Beer Guide 2023

The Good Beer Guide has evolved and developed over the last 50 years and this edition is another step in its evolution.

This year we have made the Guide much more user-friendly and accessible, featuring regional entries introduced by the award-winning writer of 50 Years of CAMRA, Laura Hadland, and bringing together pub and brewery information for the first time, making it easier to find your new favourite local ale.

The Good Beer Guide is the UK’s best-selling guide to pubs, bars and clubs where you can enjoy a great pint of traditional British beer. It highlights pubs selected by CAMRA members as places to savour good beers from small breweries as well as cask-conditioned lagers and world beers and some pubs are highlighted for serving real ciders too.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

I love beer because of the people it brings me into contact with. Passionate microbrewers, dedicated landlords, and enthusiastic regulars. I despair when we are told that Britain has no food culture, because our heritage in beer is unsurpassed. So I am dedicated to communicating what is great about beer to the wider public. Flavours, innovation but also fantastic stories deserve to be shared.

Finding a great pub to enjoy a good pint isn’t easy.

The Good Beer Guide has used the same tried-and-tested formula proven for 50 years. We know what we’re talking about! Our roots go back to 1971 and what started out as an organisation designed to highlight and campaign for real ale has grown into something much bigger today. The Good Beer Guide includes some 4500 pubs listed all across the UK.
