Let’s raise a glass to hardworking landlords and brewers
Camra, the Campaign for Real Ale, doesn’t just celebrate real ale, but also the brewers who brew it and pubs who sell it. We promote excellence in the field of both brewing real ale and looking after it in the pub. In terms of the brewers, we run a competition called Champion Beer of Britain, looking for the best real ale in the UK. The competition runs throughout the year, with thousands of real ales eligible, and culminates in August at the Great British Beer Festival in London’s Olympia. Unlike last year, where Kelburn Jaguar came within a whisker of becoming the Supreme Champion,this year, although there were a few Scottish finalists in various categories, only Alloa-based William’s Black made it to the grand final by winning the Mild category.
