The Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) has kicked off the Great British Beer Festival by revealing which beers have been voted as its “Champion” ales.

Camra has eight different categories of beers from mild to strong and from best to speciality. The winners from these categories are then put forward as Camra’s best beers, from which an overall champion is chosen.

Although the overall UK beer market has reduced over the last three years, real ale is enjoying something of a renaissance. Over the last three years more than 250 new real ale breweries have set up business and Camra has seen its membership double.

Colin Valentine, Camra’s chairman said, “We’re enjoying a genuine and sustained revival in real ale as it shows the way to success for the UK beer market. There are now more than 1,000 breweries brewing in excess of 8,000 different real ales for consumers to choose from. More people are looking for something brewed locally and with so many breweries in Britain, everybody has a local beer to try.”
