The Brittish-American beer contest

The beers rated here mainly origins from three sources. One of the is a load of bottles brougtback from southern England by Lars. Anothr big part is a package from Don Bible in the US, and the third part is a package from Josh Oakes in Canada.

So who won the battle? The Americas or Britain? Hard to tell, but Young's Double Chocolate Stout got judged the winner of the night, which was quite an accomplishemnt give the very high standard of many of the beers.
