Celebrating half a century, and with an introduction by King Charles (written whilst still the Prince of Wales), Stroud’s branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) launched the 2023 Good Beer Guide on Saturday afternoon.

At a celebration at The Ship Inn at Brimscombe, one of the Stroud pubs to be included in the guide, landlord Wes Birch raised a glass to the publication.

“Together with Pub of the Year, this is the most important event in the Stroud CAMRA calendar,” said Tim Mars, Stroud CAMRA Pubs Officer.

“It’s not just about plugging the guide on behalf of CAMRA nationally, but celebrating the inclusion of eight of our local pubs.

“This year we have made the guide much more user-friendly and accessible, featuring regional entries introduced by the award-winning writer of ‘50 Years of CAMRA’, Laura Hadland, and bringing together pub and brewery information for the first time, making it easier to find your new favourite local ale.”
