Champion Beer of Nottinghamshire (CBoN)

The annual Champion Beer of Nottinghamshire (CBoN) competition took place on Thursday 14th February, 2019 at the Hucknall Beer & Cider Festival. Nottinghamshire breweries were asked to select their beers for the competition and were judged in a number of categories. One beer was crowned champion beer for 2019 and received the Spyke Golding shield.

The beers were judged by a team of CAMRA volunteers led by John Westlake, a qualified Beer Sommelier and an award winning member of the British Guild of Beer Writers.

The total of 30 judges covered a wide age range of both men and women, with many Young Members (18-30) involved including members of the Notts Uni Real Ale Society. We were very fortunate to have Frances Finn from BBC Radio Nottingham and Notts TV as one of our judges. We'd like to thank everyone who helped judge the beers and select the best beers from Nottinghamshire's brewers.
