About CAMRA Books
CAMRA has been established as a campaigning organisation since March 1971.
Just a year into CAMRA’s life, in 1972, the first Good Beer Guide was published, aiming to promote and encourage pubs, breweries and consumers to produce, drink and support quality real ale. The first guide consisted of 18 pages, typed and copied with hand drawn illustrations and listed a few hundred pubs. Five decades later and the Guide has become CAMRA’s flagship publication, now listing over 4,500 pubs and almost 3,000 breweries.
CAMRA Books expanded and began to publish books on beer and brewing. We have also ventured into travel guides, with several versions of the Good Beer Guide produced for the USA, Germany, and Belgium.
Today we publish books on beer, cider, brewing, pubs and have been proudly putting the pint into print for 50 years.
World Beer Guide
Beer is the world’s favourite alcohol and it has changed out of all recognition in the 21st century. The country-by-country sections will give more detail of the changes but the introduction will lead readers into the world beer revolution by describing the enormous power and stretch of global brewers – with AB InBev accounting for one-third of all beer made and consumed – with the counter culture of the world-wide craft movement. From the US to Australasia, charting the beer scene in every country, the key players, and the styles available.
