CaskFinder is the app from beer industry experts Cask Marque and is designed to help you find and enjoy cask ales all over the UK.
Use the pub finder’s location finder to locate nearby pubs serving great quality cask ale. See what cask ales they had on sale when Cask Marque’s team of 50 professional beer inspectors last visited. If the licensee has access to our system they may also have listed what other beers they sell, including stout, craft beers and lager.
New beers are constantly being added by brewers in both the UK and overseas. Choose from over 1300 brewers and see all their beers in one place.
When you are in the pub, if you don’t recognise a beer then use our pump scanner to take a picture of the pump and within a few seconds receive back tasting notes telling you what to expect in terms of colour, smell, taste and more.
On the beers page you can see over 10,000 different beers with tasting notes stored on the Inapub database, which along with Cask Marque, powers the data behind the app. Click on the beers and find tasting notes from Cyclopsbeer.co.uk as well as lots more information including calories, beer & food match and interesting facts.
If you haven’t already done so, join the World’s Biggest Ale Trail and discover new pubs all over the UK. You have about 10,000 to choose from and they have all won the Cask Marque Award for the quality of their cask beer. Scan the QR code on the pub’s Cask Marque certificate and win prizes as you go.
On top of this the app now offers ale trails from our corporate customers and Visit England. Complete smaller ale trails and win prizes from our partners, as well as see beautiful parts of the country.
CaskFinder is not just another list of pubs – it is an indispensable tool for every beer lover!
Please note that many pubs regularly rotate their beers and once they are sold out, change them for another. Cask Ale, by its nature does not have a long shelf life, and should be sold within 3 days of putting on sale. Accordingly, some pubs may not have the same beers in stock today than when they were last visited by a Cask Marque assessor, so if you are travelling a long way to sample a particular beer, phone ahead to check before you set out to avoid a wasted trip – you can access the pub’s phone number from CaskFinder automatically from the pub details page.
We hope you enjoy the app and give us a good rating. If you don’t like something on it or have great suggestions for improvement then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Ratings and Reviews
Well worth having on the phone
A very useful app if you enjoy real ale. It is easy to use and provides some good information about about the pubs and the beers they serve. Although with pubs closing or changing hands it can easily be out of date. However, well worth having on the phone, especially if visiting a town or city you do not know.
Version 4 Snag
Disappointed to find that upgrade to Version 4 did not go well. Application no longer remembers my cached credentials, password reset facility does not work. No obvious method of contacting admins. New App seems very slow to load data, not sure about new interface, design does not seem as intuitive as previous version, but might grow on me, if I can get a password reset.
UPDATE: Password reset facility is now working.
Super pub finder
I have had this a few years now, and in any new place I find decent pubs with excellent beers. The map is occasionally a bit hit and miss, but I have found a lot of pubs I would never have discovered. Invariably friendly they are well worth seeking out and this App makes it easy.
There is also the "Ale Trail" which is great fun.
If you like real ale, this is a must.
