Thank you to all those breweries who took part in this year's Beer of the Festival competition. There were some fantastic beers to choose from and all the Category Winners must be congratulated on the quality of beers they put into the competition. And a huge well done to Oakham Ales for their beer Green Devil IPA which was unanimously judged as Beer of the Festival 2018.
All the beers were judged anonymously by several panels of independent judges and thanks must also go to everyone who offered to undertake this very demanding task - it's such hard work drinking beer!
Well done everyone.
The Rail Ale 2018 team
