The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has released its 51st edition of the Good Beer Guide – and ten new additions have been made in Northamptonshire.
The guide surveys 4,500 of the best pubs across the UK. Although the guide records 82 new breweries, 142 have closed. CAMRA is campaigning for more support for the Government to protect local businesses, in the wake of a cost-of-business crisis and the constant pressure of fuel bills.
A sneak peek of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2024 has been released, and ten new pubs in Northamptonshire have been added. They are listed below. A total of 45 county pubs are included in the 2024 guide.
For the full list of Northamptonshire pubs recommended in the edition, order The Good Beer Guide 2024 on the CAMRA website.
