Good Beer Guide 2018 Selection

It’s a very important and exciting stage in CAMRA’s annual calendar, when branches select their pubs to go in the following year’s Good Beer Guide.

As always members are heavily involved in the process from the beginning, by nominating their favorite pubs (and clubs). Without a nomination a pub will fall at the first hurdle.

After nominations, in early 2017 the branch will hold GBG selection meetings to which all members are invited, to help whittle down the nominees to the allotted quota (19 in Heart of Staffordshire’s case). Each pub will be visited to ensure that it serves real ale and that it is of good quality. Beer scores logged by CAMRA members on over the past 12 months are also an important factor in whether a pub gets in the GBG.


I’m a CAMRA member, what do I do now?

We’ve created an online form where you can nominate pubs or clubs in the Heart of Staffordshire area.
You will need to input your CAMRA membership number in order to validate your entry.

The form is accessible by clicking on the following link GBG Selection Form

Deadlines for nominations and voting are in the December members’ email from Mike Harker for this plus dates of the branch shortlisting and final selection meetings.

And don’t forget to buy the Good Beer Guide 2017—an ideal Christmas present—or ask Santa for a copy of your very own.
