The first round is regionalised and all south-west CAMRA members (based on your registered address) have the chance to nominate beers from our region via the CBoB voting website. This means that beers from all parts of the country have an equal chance to be nominated. The voting period opens on 1st September, and CAMRA would like as many members as possible submitting their votes for their favourite local beers.
You can nominate up to 5 beers in each of the 11 categories to be put forward for the CBoB competition, but if you only want to nominate beers in one category, or even just one beer, that’s fine. The more votes we get, the better the results will be. You do not have to nominate all the beers in one go. You can alter your selections anytime up to the deadline at midnight on 1st November.
Not all beers are eligible for CBoB; mainstream beer styles like Bitters, Best Bitters, Strong Bitters & Golden Ales have to be available for at least 7 months of the year. Other beer styles have to be available for a lesser period depending on the rarity and seasonality of the beer style. CAMRA is currently carrying out a complete root and branch revision of our beer styles, but the current styles will be used this and next year.
