Now in its 40th year, this guide is fully revised and updated with details of more than 4,500 locations across the UK serving the best real ale-from country inns to urban-style bars and backstreet boozers.
More than just a pub guide, this is a complete book for beer lovers. Completely independent, with no entry fees for listings, it is revised and updated yearly by CAMRA's 110,000 members. Along with pub reviews and information, the guide has a unique Breweries Section which lists more than 600 breweries-micro, regional, and national-that produce real ale in the UK, and the beers they brew. Pub entries give details of the beers served, food, pub history, architecture, transportation links, beer gardens, accommodation, disabled access, and facilities for families. Tasting notes for the beers, compiled by CAMRA-trained tasting teams, are also included. A full-color, 36-page features section at the front contains informative and interesting articles relating to beer, pubs, and brewing. The 39th edition was named 2nd in the "Best Beer Book" category at the Gourmand Cookbook Awards.
