Crouch Vale Brewers Gold named Best Beer in Britain - Again!

Beating out 50 competitors at CAMRA's 2006 Great British Beer Festival, at Earls Court in London, Crouch Vale Brewers Gold - "a honey-toned golden ale with grapefruit sharpness offset by suggestions of melon and pineapple" - has been named the champion beer of Britain for the second year running. Colin Bocking, who runs the Essex-based brewery, said: "This is the biggest accolade in the business. It's a recognition from the people who actually drink the stuff, and it's very important to me." The Silver award went to Harveys brewery in Sussex for their Sussex Best Bitter. The Bronze was awarded to Triple fff brewery in Hampshire for Moondance. For a full list of winners, click here.
