The Importance of Beer Scoring

CAMRA uses a National Beer Scoring System that members use to score beers in pubs and clubs using

Branches use this to help decide their Pub of the Year and their entries for The Good Beer Guide each year so it is an incredibly important tool.

The more members who score beers in our area, the greater impression we have of the quality of our local pubs and clubs.

You will need your CAMRA membership number and CAMRA website password. WhatPub can be accessed via a mobile, tablet, laptop or PC.
