London, Oct 20 : Beers lovers will no longer have to spend hours hunting down pubs that serve real ale, for a new revolutionary sat-nav service has come to their rescue.
Beer buffs have launched the service that shows drivers where to find real drink.
The dashboard guide created as a part of Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) can locate more than 4,500 pubs in Briatin.
The program, which is being launched alongside the Good Beer Guide 2009, is available to download to TomTom, Garmin and Navman devices.
"Now, wherever you are, there is no excuse for not finding your nearest Good Beer Guide pub!" the Daily Star quoted the beer-loving organisation, as saying.
"Pubs are shutting their doors at a rate of 36 a week and the industry simply needs all the help it can get with the Guide offering the user the chance to visit some of the nation's most famous institutions," said a CAMRA spokesman, as saying.
However, the new navigation system has been panned by Cathy Keeler, from road safety charity Brake, insisting that it will encourage drunken driving.
"CAMRA is obviously keen to ensure that drivers can find pubs with good beer," she said.
"But it is important to remember that driving after drinking alcohol is extremely dangerous. Brake urges all beer lovers to make sure they have a friend who is sticking to soft drinks and can drive them home safely," she added.
