The guide lists the top pubs in the UK, as well as new and existing breweries in each area.
Plenty of pubs across the North East were included in the guide, which is broken down by region and town to make it easier for beer lovers to seek out the best pubs in their area, or places they want to visit.
The guide, which is now in its 46th year, is compiled by independent volunteers and each pub is visited at least once so it can be judged.
The beer at each location is assessed according to a national scoring system, with other factors including the pub's history also taken into account.
