Beermad is here to document the wonderful range of Real Ales produced by the brewers of the British Isles. The database contains details of beers from every beer producer known to have been brewing in the British Isles since about 1976. Additionally you can find information about a number of beers from other countries throughout Europe.
Beermad's aim is to list details of every Real Ale that's brewed regularly or seasonally/occasionally. The sheer number of special brews / one-offs / scoopers' "specials" / rebadges produced has made it ridiculously unfeasible to continue listing every beer produced by every brewery, though a large number of former beers (including one-offs) can be found in the database and a small number will continue to be added.
With a lot of new beers and an average of a dozen or so new producers being added every month, the Beermad database continues to grow apace. If you'd like to keep up-to-date with what's happening, you can can subscribe to Beermad's email alerts service.
A particular love of Beermad's editor is Belgian beer; if you'd like to know a bit more about the amazing beers from this under-rated country, have a look at the Beginner's guide to Belgian beer.
Beermad is a labour of love. It takes no commercial sponsorship and never will, so please be aware that if you email me suggesting I advertise your business, you'll get a very negative response (and it's amazing how many stupid people ignore this message).
In order to be totally open and honest, I make available a list of my financial interests in the brewing and licensed trade.
