CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2019 is set to be released on 13 September and the 46th edition of the beer-lovers’ bible will include more than 4,500 of Britain’s finest pubs.
This figure includes 36 from the Sheffield & District CAMRA branch region, and although we cannot yet reveal any names, it’s fair to say there are a few new venues on the list – a great testament to the great things that are happening in the Sheffield real ale scene at the moment. There is also information on every brewery currently operating in the country, along with tasting notes on their core beers.
The selection process for GBG 2019 began back in late 2017, when branch members were invited to vote for up to 30 of their favourite pubs from within the Sheffield city boundaries, plus up to six from the surrounding Derbyshire villages that are also part of the branch. The 36 establishments with the most votes were then visited by a team of volunteers to confirm the pubs’ eligibility and obtain up-to-date details for inclusion in the final book.
The book is available to pre-order now from the CAMRA bookshop, priced at £11 + p&p for members (£13 + p&p for non-members). Alternatively, it will also be on sale from the book stall at the Steel City Beer & Cider Festival from 10-13 October.
