Fellow Beer Blogger Mark Dredge has opened up nominations for the 2010 Golden Pints Awards. You can read his original post here. I thought I'd get my thinking cap on and submit my nominations for the GPA 2010. It's been a great year for beers and brewing with some really fine examples of quality beers out there so it was pretty difficult in some categories to get it down to a single winner.
So here goes - the beer monkey's nominations,
Best UK Draught - Fyne Ales Jarl
Best UK Bottled Beer - Kernel Brewery S.C.A.NS IPA / Brewdog Bashah Reserve
Best Overseas Draught - Keesmann Herren Pils
Best Overseas Bottled Beer - Saison Du BUFF

Good choices - Jarl is an awesome beer :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment and for the follow.
I'll have a little look at your blog and give it a follow.
Jarl was truly the most awesome beer of the gbbf! ;-)
Do you know that it's becoming a regular staple brew in the Fyne Ales stable in 2011. Bottles too.
I'm not a betting man but i'd put my cash on Fyne Ales Jarl being there or thereabouts when it comes to Champion Beer of Scotland, if not Britain in 2011. That's if there is any beer justice in this world.
