Southport Golden Sands wins Gold at Beer Festival

Champion Beer of Britain announced - CAMRA toasts Best Beer in Britain.

Well there is only one category that really matters:

Best Bitter category Gold - Southport, Golden Sands (Southport, Lancs)
Silver - Buntingford, Britannia (Royston, Hertfordshire)
Joint Bronze - Evan Evans, Cwrw (Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire)
Joint Bronze - Thornbridge, Lord Marples (Bakewell, Derbyshire)
Joint Bronze - Vale, VPA (Brill, Buckinghamshire)

Congratulations to Southport Brewery. Their Old Shrimper Ale should surely have got a mention in the Winter beer category. Maybe next year.
