Good Beer Guide launch

Friday 12th November sees the publication of the latest edition of the Campaign For Real Ale’s flagship book, The Good Beer Guide 2022.

The book lists 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.

Singer James Blunt has thrown his support behind the Great British pub and reflected on the industry’s struggles during the coronavirus pandemic, in his foreword for the best-seller.
Blunt, who owns the 17th-century Fox & Pheasant pub in Chelsea, remarks that as both a musician and a publican, he has “pretty much chosen the worst two jobs for a global pandemic”.
However, with his trademark optimism, he highlights the importance of pubs to communities and encourages Brits to get back to the pub to support their locals.  

With the pandemic affecting the opening of so many pubs over the year, special arrangements had to be made for the publication and it is a credit that the book has been published.

Where to obtain
Some pubs in the local area are running launches of the Guide, however the book can also be ordered direct from CAMRA:
