    Clout
    Pass on third as neither deserve a third place vote
    My vote is for the first vintage of clout. Not the second

    Well there it is folks result is as follows

    1st Nail - Clout Stout
    2nd Feral - Watermelon Warhead
    3rd LA Sirene - Saison

    A big thanks to everyone who took part. I thought it was great to see such an array of different styles in the mix and interestingly LCPA (winner from last time) didn't even get one vote. Feral seem to dominate the best brewery award as they were so well represented.

    I'm thinking of doing a similar exercise for International beers. Maybe starting off to find the best 16 belgians, and so on until we have the best Belgian, US, UK and Other

    Let me know your thoughts. The same problem exists of not having tried beers and whether you should vote or not. There seems to be strong arguments for both. Let me know your thoughts and we'll clear it up before proceeding on.

    Cheers
