The Good Beer Guide app is a service to help you find pubs in the UK that consistently serve cask conditioned real ale in good condition, as well as provide information about breweries and beers using information from the Good Beer Guide, UK's best-selling, independent guide to great beer and great pubs. With full reviews of 4,500 top pubs throughout the UK, as well as details of every real-ale brewery and their regular beers, the Good Beer Guide is published annually by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and now in its 40th year.
This is a free app with an optional annual subscription of £4.99 per year. Without a subscription the app will have limited functionality allowing you to find the nearest pub and brewery to you.
By signing into your account, the subscription features of app can be used on more than one device, and cross-platform, without additional cost. (so long as the app is installed on all devices).
The Good Beer Guide is created through the work of thousands of volunteer CAMRA members resulting in an annual publication containing the top 4500 pubs that consistently serve well conditioned real ale.
