Over 1800 beers featured in CAMRA’s new Good Bottled Beer Guide
This eighth edition of the Good Bottled Beer Guide features some relatively new breweries which have quickly made a name for themselves in the beer world – the likes of The Kernel, Red Willow, and Rebel, to name but a few – but also bottle-conditioned beers from some of the UK’s biggest brewers such as Thwaites, Wells & Young's and Shepherd Neame.
Bottle-conditioned beers from 342 different breweries feature in the new Good Bottled Beer Guide, with 583 beers chosen for detailed profiles, complete with tasting notes, within the guide – so readers aren’t just informed of what’s available, but what they should opt-for too.
Other features include star awards for the best beers, rosettes for the best breweries, a listing of specialist beer shops and full details of how to buy, store and serve bottled beer.
Jeff Evans, author of CAMRA’s Good Bottled Beer Guide, says the book represents the huge range of beers now brewed in the UK: “The Good Bottled Beer Guide highlights the breadth of fantastic beer now being produced in the UK - as well as traditional British beer styles such as bitter and stout, we are now very lucky to have international beer styles such as American-style pale ales and German-inspired wheat beers being brewed on these shores.”
Evans added: “From world famous brews such as Fuller’s Vintage Ale and Worthington's White Shield, to beers that use hops from New Zealand and America such as Buxton Brewery’s Axe Edge IPA, the range of beers is so great that there’s never been a better time to be a beer drinker in the UK.”
A sister publication to the Good Beer Guide, CAMRA’s Good Bottled Beer Guide by Jeff Evans is now available from all good retailers, and the CAMRA shop (www.camra.org.uk/shop), priced £10.99 for CAMRA members, and £12.99 for non-members. The book will be on sale throughout the Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court, London, August 13th-17th 2013.
