Champion Winter Beer of Britain

The Champion Winter Beer of Britain (known affectionately as CW Bob) is a national CAMRA competition, held each year at the Winter Festival, and moves around the country to different CAMRA locations along with the festival.

The winners of each category are announced on the first day of the festival, as the judging takes place in the Festival Halls in the early afternoon. The overall winners are then chosen and the overall winner is crowned and the results are announced at the start of the Trade Session just after 3pm. At 5.30pm the festival is then opened to CAMRA members for a preview where members can also taste beers from the competition including the winners. The beers remain available throughout the week, until they are all drunk!

Nick Boley is the CAMRA National Director Responsible for the competition.

Coming soon is a list of contenders for the Champion Winter Beer of Britain.

Judging commenced over a year ago in regional and county rounds until the final shortlist of winners became announced and these winning finalists are the contenders for each category of the competition and contenders for the overall winner of the competition.
