The Good Beer Guide 2024
With an unmistakable cover design, we are excited to announce that the foreword for this year’s Good Beer Guide has been penned by Bruce Dickinson, frontman and lead singer of Iron Maiden.

Bruce is the frontman and lead singer of one of the most successful bands to come from the UK, Iron Maiden. He is also a collaborative brewer with Robinsons, producing one of the UK’s most successful real ale beer brands that started with Trooper a decade ago.
His foreword is a personal reflection on his love of beer, pubs, and a job that he describes as ‘the best on the planet’ – which includes brewing and drinking beer!
‘You hold in your hands a voyage of discovery not just through a wonderful world of traditional ales and brewers, but also a lens through which to observe the web of history which weaves around the fabric of that almost unique institution-the British Pub.’ – Bruce Dickinson
Finding a great pub to enjoy a good pint isn’t easy.
Trust the Campaign for Real Ale – ‘CAMRA’ – to ensure that those little gems are there.
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.
In The Good Beer Guide, you’ll find over 4500 listings across the UK’s best pubs, bars and breweries, chosen by local CAMRA volunteers as having the best cask beers available – or you can check out the special brewery section to discover new breweries setting the scene alight with interesting, exciting new brews.
With reviews on all of these establishments, The Good Beer Guide is your passport to discovering where and what you should be drinking right now.
In today’s world of homogenised and bland, where one beer tastes just like another, it can be hard to find a great pub that serves interesting and well-kept real 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.
