Which are your personal champion beers?

The 2018 Champion Beer of Britain competition has now begun (yes the process takes over a year!) and this is an opportunity for all local CAMRA members to have their input into which beers from our region are nominated to be entered into the competition.

Once entered into the competition the beers are judged in local, regional and national knockout blind tasting events held at various beer festivals until the finalists are judged at the Great British Beer Festival in August.

So, its time to vote for the beers brewed in our region that you think are the best. Those memorable beers where the taste, aroma and more all come together to deliver enjoyment every time, perfection and pleasure in a glass!

You are asked to pick your top 5 regularly brewed beers in each of the following style: Mild, Bitter, Best Bitter, Strong Bitter, Golden Ales, Speciality beers, Old Ales & Strong Milds, Porters, Stouts, Barley Wines & Strong Old Ales and Real Ale in a Bottle.

Sheffield & District CAMRA members are invite to vote in two regions – Yorkshire & North East and East Midlands – due to the geography of our branch area. Vote by logging in to www.cbobvoting.org.uk with your membership number and CAMRA website password (if you haven’t yet got a password, log in to www.camra.org.uk with your postcode as your default password and change your password).

The last time a beer from our branch area won Champion Beer of Britain was in 2004 when Kelham Island Pale Rider was the winner.

The deadline for voting is 1st November.
