Great British Beer Festival

With the GBBF just around the corner I thought I'd give you a list of the three overall winners from last year

Champion Beer of Britain - Castle Rock, Harvest Pale (3.8% ABV, Nottingham, Notts)
Second - Timothy Taylor, Landlord (4.3% ABV, Keighley, West Yorkshire)
Third - Surrey Hills, Hammer Mild (3.8% ABV, Guildford, Surrey)

The link below has all the category winners

I have sampled 2 of the 3 winners, but to my shame i've not had any beers from the Surrey Hills brewery!

I recently tried the bottled variety of the Castle Rock and was pleased that I had. A sharp, crisp fresh taste. Clear and light in colour.
(I know my cousin who lives in Nottingham speaks very highly of it ... I know I know - I should get up there and have a go myself!)

I have also had Timothy Taylor Landlord ... on many ocassions ... its one of those beers that calls out to you when you see the badge on the pump. A good session beer with a pleasant looking colour. A beer that you can rely on!

So who will triumph this year?
Why not get along to Earls Court 2-6 August to make your own opinion!
