Champion Beer of Britain
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.
The judging ordinarily takes place at the Great British Beer Festival in August, and the winner is announced at the festival.
In addition to the CBOB, CAMRA also sponsors separate competitions for the Champion Beer of Scotland and Champion Beer of Wales.
