The Good Beer Guide is the Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA's) flagship publication, and has been published annually since 1974, growing from 96 pages to well over a thousand. In this 45th anniversary year, in order to help us plan the future direction of the Guide we would like to know what our readers think of it, its different sections and the information it contains. By completing this survey you will help to steer the development of the Good Beer Guide as we look to maintain its position as the country's best-selling beer and pub guide.
All completed surveys which include contact details will be entered into a prize draw (terms & conditions apply - see www.camra.org.uk/gbg2018survey). Winners will be announced in What's Brewing and on the survey webpage after the survey closes on 1st March 2018.
The survey is about the paper edition of the Good Beer Guide.
