Well this year’s festival is done and dusted, and probably great timing, as the heavens have opened as I write this, and it’s rather wet outside. Another fantastic year, some great beers, more great memories, and just one dodgy moment (those dart toilets).
So the votes in my mobile app have been counted, and I’ve discounted the beers with only 1 vote, as it’s too open to one ‘odd’ vote.
The top 25 are as follows, and I have to say well done to Nene Valley, one of their beers received 19 votes!
Local breweries did pretty well – including Xtreme ales – their Chocolate stout was one of my last beers, and it was pretty damn good!
* The Bible Black beer was the official champion beer of the festival, so your voting did agree with that from the looks of things.
