Guild member’s search to find Britain’s Best Beer

British Guild of Beer Writers member Steven Pejica has launched a web-based competition to find the best British beer of 2013 at his website Now in its fourth year, the competition runs until the end of November 2013, with the winners announced in early December 2013.

Other beer competitions in the UK require entry by the brewers. Not all beers are entered for even the most prestigious competitions. So how can they be objective? They can’t.’s Britain’s Best Beer competition is unique in that 100% of beers brewed in the UK are automatically entered. All styles are eligible; the only condition is that the beer must be genuinely brewed in the UK.’s registered users can vote on their favourite beers in two categories: draught and packaged (bottled or canned). Voters can list up to three beers in each of the two categories. The winners will be crowned aletalk’s Best British Beer 2013 (draught) & aletalk’s Best British Beer 2013 (packaged)

It is free to register with and registered users who vote in the competition will be entered into the site’s monthly draw to win a case of beer which this year has again been kindly sponsored by online beer retailer
