Went to the Varsity Bar just outside Guildford on Thursday night for the local CAMRA group’s launch of the 2010 Good Beer Guide. The venue was chosen as the Varsity Bar has been in the guide for 10 consecutive years now – a reward for selling a wide range of superbly kept beers. There was a special presentation to commemorate this.

Last night the beer options included King’s Red River, and Shere Drop and Gilt Complex from the Surrey Hills brewery – all fine beers.

I’m not sure if it’s the quantity of beer that I drunk but the GBG seems so much heavier than previous issues. Investigation will start at the weekend as to which pubs are no longer in.

There was some mention of the price of the GBG. CAMRA members could get it for £10 at the event last night and the non-members price is £15.99. However some will have spotted that it’s available for £7.99 from Amazon at the moment. Apparently this is less than cost price and it is not possible to prevent Amazon from selling it at a loss. It’ll be interesting to see how long that price sticks.
