Wigan Beer Festival chooses two beers of the festival - one light and one dark. This year's festival took place from 3 to 5 March, and here are the festival beers as chosen by the customers:
Light beer: Blue Ball American IPA.
Dark beer: Prospect Pickaxe.
Blue Ball is from Runcorn, and Prospect from Standish.
P.S. 25 March: I've corrected the info above after receiving an e-mail saying I'd been misinformed about the light ale winner. Dark Star American IPA, which I was told was the light ale winner, wasn't even at the festival!
