The Champion Beer of Britain, or CBOB, is a competition sponsored by CAMRA to find the best real ale brewed in Britain for a given year.

[edit] Eligibility

While the competition is called "Champion Beer," in fact it is limited to the narrower category of Real Ale; British lagers and force carbonated beers are not eligible. Entrants are selected by a panel of experts, by regional competitions, and by write-in vote by CAMRA members.

[edit] The Competition

The judging ordinarily takes place at the Great British Beer Festival in August, and the winner is announced at the festival.

[edit] Associated Competitions

In addition to the CBOB, CAMRA also sponsors separate competitions for the Champion Beer of Scotland and Champion Beer of Wales.
