Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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) for over 40 years.
This is a free app with an optional annual subscription. Without a subscription the app will have limited functionality allowing you to find the nearest pub and brewery to you. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of the app you will get 3 months free subscription as soon as you create an account.
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.
Simple to use, Good Beer Guide Mobile for iPhone offers the following features:
Complete entries for over 4,500 independently-selected urban and rural pubs, giving details of beer, food, opening hours, accommodation, transport links, pub history, disabled access, facilities for families and more. The entire content of the pubs and brewery sections of the Good Beer Guide 2014 book is included in the subscribed version.
Fully independent pub reviews, written by local CAMRA members.
Unique tasting notes for regular beers, written by trained CAMRA tasting panels. Any regular beers served at a pub have the full tasting notes about that beer.
All the information is in the app so there is no need to be online when you search for a pub or brewery. You only need to be online to download updates or search from an address / postcode.
The My Guide feature makes it easy to keep tasting notes, favorites, visited pubs, or your own review of the pub. Save your favourite pubs in My Guide, so you can quickly go back to them later.
Search from your current location, a postcode, place name or London tube station.
Interactive maps within the app help you find your way. Launch the full Maps application to get step by step directions.
Changes to pubs that are reported to CAMRA between editions are automatically updated in the app.
Any one who bought an edition of the Good Beer Guide App before September 2012, can use the 2012 Legacy Edition. This will work even if you don’t have a subscription to the current Guide.
Any My Guide locations such as favourites, visited and personal reviews from any edition from 2012 to 2015 all appear together in the My Guide section.

What's New in Version 2.9
Corrections to pub and brewery data.
Fixed problem with some breweries in My Guide from older editions being changed during app update.
I am a longtime fan of the book version of the good beer guide and had hoped this would include at least part of the descriptions.
Unfortunately all this app really does is tell you where the pubs are with the key for what features it has. It gives you nothing of the character of a pub or things like what sort of food they serve. If you just want to know where the pubs with good beer are this might be enough for you, if you want more than that it is poor value for money and other apps will probably serve you better for free.
These guys are crooks
First they move the goal posts so they can lock you out of access at will, then they promise you something to trick you into giving them another £5 then neither deliver nor refund you.
If you buy the physical version of this app beware - they're probably working on a way to steal back all old copies you've paid for as I type.
To make matters worse they don't respond to emails either forcing me to try to get their attention like this!
Avoid this app - it's expensive and bad news as well as a stunted version of the original and full of erroneous info.
