The 45th edition of the Good Beer Guide 2018, published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) today, features two new brewery listings for Thanet.
By the Mile nano-brewery in Broadstairs and NauticAles micropub in Margate Road, Ramsgate, feature among eight new Kent brewery listings.
The book’s editor Roger Protz said: “It’s fantastic to see a continued growth in local brewing. The first edition of the Good Beer Guide published 45 years ago was a call to arms for beer lovers at a time when the brewing industry was in dire trouble and the market flooded with tasteless, fizzy beer.
“How the beer world has changed! Today, in spite of closures, a growing number of pubs clamber to offer the best-possible range of real ales and we are still seeing remarkable growth in the brewing sector.”
As well as listing new and existing breweries in the area, the UK’s top pubs also feature in the guide
In total Kent has 145 pubs listed in the guide.
Mr Protz said: “The Good Beer Guide 2018 recommends the best pubs in Britain for real ale drinkers. The guide is compiled through independent judgement and recommendations, meaning pubs are chosen on merit alone rather than being charged for an entry, as is the case with many other guides. If you have a passion for ale and want to know the best places to find it, then this book can be an invaluable resource for you.”
