The Good Beer Guide app collates data from over 40,000 pubs, featuring over 13,000 beers from 2,000 breweries that can be found by searching by the name of the brewery or beer they are looking for.

After creating an account complete with profile photo, users can then apply filters to find their ideal pub, and can narrow down their choices based on include everything from having a fireplace or free wifi, to being dog-friendly or selling real cider on tap.

The Good Beer Guide will also serve as a social media tool for the beer community. App users can also connect with friends using a social feed which lets them share pictures and comments on the pubs they visit and the beers they try, as well as allowing them to follow other account holders.

The app allows gives you your own profile. You can choose to follow other users, turning the reviewing app into a social network for the real ale community.

The app works on a freemium subscription model; creating an account is free, but users can subscribe to unlock more features including enhanced search tools and access to a database of 4,500 CAMRA-recommended pubs for 99p a month, £1.99 for three months or £4.99 for a year.

Paying users can also use image capture to scan pump clips to instantly find out more information about the real ales on tap at the bar. They can then tag beers for other users to share what they are enjoying in real time.

The Good Beer Guide allows you to search for pubs based on criteria including the beer available, proximity.

CAMRA’s head of publishing Simon Hall sais: “The Good Beer Guide is already a hugely respected source of beer and pub information. The app is the next step, opening up the world of great beer and pubs to even more people and providing a new way for them to share their passion with others through pictures, tasting notes and reviews. It allows people to take the pub with them wherever they go.”
