In the world of electronic gadgetry hasn't the hard copy of the GBG gone past its sell by date?
The GBG is available on smartphones and could be updated on a regular basis. The hard copy of the GBG is out of date as soon as it is printed. Surely modern technology is the way forward and more pubs selling good beer could be included.

My thought too Mike. this is the same reason that I do not buy or read newspapers. Why should I pay for tomorrow when I can read today for free?

The GBG is made from data collected the year before and then we still have to wait 9 months to actually be able to buy it. I almost want an app that directly provides the best beers by quality) for region, or for the country, meaning that we could map in almost real time where great beers are. 3 months delay for electronic data, vs 9 months minimum that we currently have would be a drastic improvement.
