2010 CAMRA Vancouver Awards

January 19, 2010

For the full release go to CAMRA’s release. It has a nice concise summary of BC’s year of beer in 2009.

I certainly agree with the top 3 breweries in BC, maybe not the order, and I’d make Crannog tie for 3rd. I can’t really comment too much on the other awards as I’m not from Vancouver and never spend time there. I can say that the Alibi Room is fantastic and Nigel, one of the co-owners, really knows his beer.

It’s great to see how popular cask ale is becoming in Vancouver. After a week of being surrounded by over 400 different cask ale at the Great British Beer Festival I fell in love with the cask.
