Bristol & District CAMRA Launch of the 2024 Good Beer Guide

The 2024 edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide will be launched on Friday 29 September. The Bristol & District branch are holding a local launch event at the Kings Head on Victoria Street (BS1 6DE)  from 12 noon until 6pm, so come along and buy a copy from some of the people that helped put the guide together. Each year volunteer members of CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) survey thousands of pubs to work out where you can find the best beer. This is the 51st edition of the guide and has a very special cover (see attached) and includes a foreword by Iron Maiden front man Bruce Dickinson. So this copy may well appeal to fans of metal as well as ale!

Although the cover price is £16.99, for the launch day only it will be available at the bargain price of £15, or just £12 to card-carrying CAMRA members. So come along and purchase a copy of this very special edition.

In The Good Beer Guide, you’ll find 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.

With reviews on all of these establishments, The Good Beer Guide is your passport to discovering where and what you should be drinking right now.

In today’s world of homogenised and bland, where one beer tastes just like another, it can be hard to find a great pub that serves interesting and well-kept real ale.

The Good Beer Guide (GBG) is the UK’s best-selling guide to pubs, bars and clubs where you can enjoy a great pint of traditional British beer. It highlights pubs selected by CAMRA members as places to savour good beers from small breweries as well as cask-conditioned lagers and world beers and some pubs are highlighted for serving real ciders too.

If you can’t make the launch event at the Kings Head on 29th September you can buy the Good Beer Guide direct from CAMRA by clicking here: The Good Beer Guide 2024 – CAMRA shop
