Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Note that this app has been superseded by a new CAMRA app. Please install the new one instead.
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 2016 edition of 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.
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 complete content of the pubs and brewery sections of the Good Beer Guide 2016 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 My Guide locations such as favourites, visited and personal reviews from any edition from 2012 to 2016 all appear together in the My Guide section.
Good Beer Guide Mobile for iPhone is developed and published by Greenius Mobile.

What's New in Version 2.11
My Guide cloud synchronisation: Using the same account on multiple devices, or reinstalling on a new device, will automatically synchronise your favourites, visits and comments.
iOS 6 and 7: Fix crash when searching tube station or breweries.
Improved network security.
iOS 9 improved browser when viewing pub or brewery web sites.
Several bug fixes.
Does a basic job; but little thought has gone into exploiting the data
Yes, it lets you find GBG pubs where you are and where you are going. But irritations:
- you can’t exclude breweries from the search results - and where I live there are more breweries than pubs
- Nearby pubs are defined as within a couple of kilometres or so; you can’t adjust that. Out on a bicycle in the country 5-10km would make more sense, or in a conurbation selecting ones accessible by bus and or train when out on a day ticket.
- It could also help you find a beer; for example somebody must sell draught Brain’s Dark in Cardiff and the app has this information.
But I wouldn’t go back to the brick-sized paper edition!
Don't understand the complaining. This app works very well and £5 for the GBG each year is fine with me. I'd recommend it enthusiastically - we navigate by it on days out and have yet to be disappointed.
No support. Rubbish app.
Having put in various requests I have yet to receive any answers. Cannot access new version offline and even though I have renewed my subscription the old version is not available to me either. No answer to my requests for a refund. Do not waste your money on this pile of poo.
