CAMRA will be attending this year's BBC Good Food Show at Birmingham's NEC, and for the second year running the Champion Bottled Beer of Britain Competition will be judged and announced at the show.
Finalist judging will take place on 30th November 2017 at CAMRA's Great British Beer Experience, sponsored by Beer Hawk, with the winner announcement expected at midday. Last year saw Stringer's Brewery receive this accolade but who will win the hunt for Britain's best bottled beer 2017?
Beer Hawk are proud sponsors of the Champion Bottled Beer of Britain Competition. Cases of the shortlisted beers will be available to order online from 30th Nov and at the Beer Hawk stand at the show. Look out for more information on this and how to claim the CAMRA member discount.
