The Good Beer Guide is published by CAMRA every year. The pubs that in it are chosen by CAMRA branches across the country. Unlike some guides, landlords can't buy their entry.
How does Colchester CAMRA choose its pubs for the Good Beer Guide?
Contributing to the GBG selections is one of the most rewarding parts of being CAMRA member. Pubs in the guide are chosen by those who know them best - the people who live near, and drink in them, regulary. The method Colchester uses is explained in this graphic.
We make use of beer scores in our selection process so members can contribute all year round to the selection process.
