n Beer lovers in Sheffield can now find good pubs and pints at the touch of a button.

The Campaign for Real Ale has launched an app called the Good Beer Guide which collates data from over 40,000 pubs so that app users can search for local pubs based on their individual preferences.

Filters include everything from having a fireplace or free wifi, to being dog-friendly or selling real cider on tap.

App users can also connect with friends using a social feed which lets them share pictures and comments on the pubs they visit and the beers they try.

CAMRA’s head of publishing Simon Hall says: “The Good Beer Guide is already a hugely respected source of beer and pub information.

“The app is the next step, opening up the world of great beer and pubs to even more people and providing a new way for them to share their passion with others through pictures, tasting notes and reviews.

“It allows people to take the pub with them wherever they go.”
