The Good Beer Guide - VOTE HERE

Is a totally independent guide compiled from data received from members of CAMRA.

Because space in the guide is limited each CAMRA branch is given an allocation. We in North West Wiltshire are able to vote for 12 of the pubs in our postcode area plus 1 from Gloucestershire that falls within our geographical boundary. We have 130 pubs in our area so choosing 13 is not an easy task. By no means do all those pubs consistently sell beer at what we'd regard as GBG standard but we could easily fill a bigger allocation - as would most other branches.

Each branch decides how they select their entries. In our Branch, all members are invited to nominate possible entries by early January. The top 12 pubs and one from Gloucestershire are then survey by active members to ensure they comply with national guidelines.  It’s important to follow these national guidelines for GBG voting not only does this make it fair on the landlords, Landladies and Managers but also helps when we chose our Pub of The Year, which by branch definition must be one of the 12 voted for the GBG.

Obviously pubs voted for must sell good quality ale but this doesn't mean they have to have 12 hand pumps, a pub selling a single consistently good ale should be considered.

Obviously the more members voting for a pubs to be considered for the Good Beer Guide the better so please encourage your fellow CAMRA members to vote. Our branch Pub of The Year is selected from the top 12 pubs you vote for so your vote is doubly important and only takes a few moments.

You can find a list of the branch pubs below along with  the online voting link.

Please, please, please ensure you have put your membership number on the form as your vote will not be counted without it.
