This page is intended to be a moving snapshot of scooper's views on various things like the best scooping pub, brewery and beer. More will be added later, under consideration are best overseas bar/brewery - let us know any ideas you have!
Anyway, what you all need to do is EMAIL US NOW WITH YOUR TOP TENS!!! We have decided that as everyone's views change regularly, we want you to update your top ten whenever you like and it'll be amended in the tables.
The current 3 categories are Best UK Beer, Best UK Brewery (still in operation) and Best UK Scooping Pub (still open). Your No.1 vote gets 10 points, No.2 9 and so on. They are sorted by points, then votes, then alphabetically.
The Present champions are -
|Best UK Beer still being brewed||Enville Old Porter|
|Best UK Brewery still in production||Roosters, Harrogate|
|Best UK Scooping Pub still open||Cask and Cutler, Sheffield|
Congratulations to them all. If you don't agree, get your votes in and change things - democracy DOES matter! (well, it does here anyway. At least if you vote for Roosters you know it won't turn it's back on all it's former supporters and go and bomb another micro just because a large brewery says. Hopefully.).
The votes in this category are spread out a bit thin, so the number of beers with more than one vote is small!
|1||Enville Old Porter||3||18|
|3||Nottingham Extra Pale Ale||2||17|
|4||Dwan An Dubhain||2||16|
|6||Sarah Hughes DRM||2||10|
|8||Big Lamp Prince Bishops||1||10|
|9||Bullmastiff Welsh Gold||1||10|
|10||Church End Baldrick's plan||1||10|
No surprises at the top slot, although I am surprised at Bathams - but pleased scoopers have such good taste! The only regional in the list is certainly one of the best.
Again, we have multiple votes for all entries, and Sheffield seems to be favourite so far - the Cask is running away with it! I assume the Great Western is featured as a lot of people would have visited it during the CAMRA AGM. Interestingly, the Beer House has "nil points" so far - a few years ago it would have been in the top 3 without question.
|1||Cask & Cutler||11||95|
|5||Great Western, Exeter||6||30|
|6||Fat Cat, Sheffield||6||30|
|7||Ship & Mitre||7||29|
|8||Waggon & Horses, Halesowen||6||24|
|9||White Horse, Hedgerley||4||24|
