Wetherspoon pubs have been acclaimed for the quality of their real ale – by members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branches across the UK.

A total of 235 Wetherspoon pubs are listed in the Good Beer Guide 2012 – the beer-lovers bible.

Local CAMRA branch members choose pubs for inclusion in the guide following regular visits to check on the quality and the real ale on offer over a 12–month period.

Editor Roger Protz said: “The Good Beer Guide is unique. There are several pub guides available and in the main they concentrate on picture-postcard country pubs and food. This guide, on the other hand, starts with beer quality: hence its title.

“The driving force of the Campaign for Real Ale is quality cask-conditioned draught beer and it has been the guide’s belief for xx years that if a landlord keeps his beer well and pours perfect pints, then everything else in the pub – welcome, food, accommodation and family facilities – are likely to be of an equally high standard.”

Wetherspoon’s operations director, Martin Geoghegan said: “This is a wonderful achievement by our pub managers.

“We have pubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland which are represented in the guide.

“In some cases, the only pub in a particular town which is listed is a Wetherspoon outlet.”
