Good Beer Guide

My new project for 2019 onwards, which might take a few decades, is to start visiting every pub in the Good Beer Guide (GBG). Obviously that’s an unreachable aim since there are 4,500 pubs in the guide, but I’ll try to divert to these pubs where I can…..

I’ve been pretty impressed at the pubs listed in the guide, so CAMRA are doing a good job, despite the complaints they get about the listing process.

Another potential problem is that pubs fall out of the guide and get added to it, so I might well be listing pubs below that are no longer GBG pubs. I’ll only list them below once I’ve written about the pub.
