Here are the results of CAMRA's Champion Winter Beer of Britain Competition, which took place today at the National Winter Ales Festival in Manchester. The Overall Champion was from West Yorkshire: Elland Brewery's 1872 Porter. The Silver went to the wonderfully-named Comrade Bill Bartram’s EAISS (Egalitarian Anti-Imperialist Soviet Stout) from Bartrams Brewery of Suffolk. No winners from the Merseyside or Lancashire areas, the nearest being Marble Brewery of Manchester who won Silver in the Stout category.
