BEER OF THE YEAR 2013 – THE RESULTS

BoTY2013I can’t believe it’s already that time of year.
Thanks to everyone who voted, this year has been interesting and a very very close call with this year’s Beer Of The Year winning by a single vote.
It was interesting watching what people went for and I was surprised that we didn’t get more votes for some of this year’s new breweries like Wild Brewing Co. and Beavertown, Partizan and Siren.

And so, without further ado, the winner of this year’s Campaign For Really Good Beer Beer Of The Year Award is…

The Kernel Double Citra
