Borough breweries featured in the new edition of the Good Beer Guide

Published on: Thursday, 13th September 2018

Two borough breweries have been included in the latest edition of a popular industry journal.

The 46th edition of the Good Beer Guide, published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), features a total of 13 new breweries from across the East Midlands region and 97 new pub entries.

Tom Stainer, Chief Communications Officer at CAMRA says: “It’s fantastic to see the number of new pub entries in the Good Beer Guide 2019 and the continued growth in local brewing.  We’ve seen such sweeping changes across the brewing and pub scene over the past year with brewing becoming more collaborative and socially-minded, and pubs continuing to diversify to cater for all tastes with the continued increase in micropubs, tap rooms and community-run pubs, each improving choice for drinkers.

“This is the 46th issue of the Guide – a book that has become an essential companion for those with a passion for real ale and discovering the best places to find it.”

The Good Beer Guide 2019 is compiled through independent judgement and recommendations, and every pub that appears has been visited regularly by CAMRA members.  CAMRA is a proudly independent organisation and as such all entries in the guide are free – there are no hidden costs associated with appearing.  

As well as the print edition, the Good Beer Guide app is available to smartphone users.  Available on both the App Store and Google Play, users can search for local pubs based on their individual preferences and connect with friends or subscribe to receive access to enhanced search tools.

New East Midlands breweries in the Good Beer Guide 2019 include:

  • Birch Cottage Brewery, Sawley, Derbyshire
  • Bang the Elephant Brewing Co Ltd, Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire
