Privilege Club peace of mind

A simple yearly subscription to ensure you get a copy of CAMRA’s flagship publication detailing the best pubs across the UK

In today’s world of homogenised and bland, where one beer tastes just like another, it can be hard to find a great pub that serves interesting and well-kept real ale.

The Good Beer Guide (GBG) is the UK’s best-selling guide to pubs, bars and clubs where you can enjoy a great pint of traditional British beer. It highlights pubs selected by CAMRA members as places to savour good beers from small breweries as well as cask-conditioned lagers and world beers and some pubs are highlighted for serving real ciders too.

Uk's Best-Selling guide to pubs

The first edition of The Good Beer Guide was published in 1972 and since then it has gone from strength to strength and now covers 4500 pubs across all regions in the UK and NI. Compiled and supported by 1000’s of CAMRA members The Good Beer Guide is the definitive guide for beer lovers.

50 years of The Good Beer Guide

Since 1997 Cask Marque has been ensuring that the cask ale you drink in pubs in the UK is in perfect condition.

Our 50 qualified assessors make over 20,000 visits to pubs each year in England, Scotland, Wales, Europe and even America to check the temperature, appearance, aroma and taste of Britain’s favourite drink.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I sign up for the Privilege Club ?

It is effectively an early-bird pre-order that enables us to sell the guide to members at a discounted rate as the orders are locked in every year. Privilege Club subscribers save over 30%.

Can I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription at any time by accessing your membership details. We will always inform you prior to the direct debit payment being taken. 

When will I get my Good Beer Guide?

We aim to send off Privilege Club Good Beer Guides up to two weeks before publication. This means you should get your Good Beer Guide before it hits the shelves. We also ask Privilege Club members to try and keep the contents of the Guide as close to their chest as possible, it can be quite exciting news for some pubs to be included and we don’t like to spoil their surprise party.

Can I order more than 1 copy of The Good Beer Guide?

Yes, you can order as many copies as you like! It is a great way to ensure you get copies for friends and family, especially so close to the christmas season.

Are there any other benefits?

We will occasionally send exclusive offers to privilege Club members. You do need to make sure your preferences for offers are also updated via your membership details. We will not send you marketing materials unless you opt in.
