British Colombia’s best beers named at CAMRA awards 2015

British Colombia’s best beers announced at CAMRA awards

On the same night as the Academy Awards in Hollywood, beer lovers in Vancouver were celebrating their favourite beers and breweries at the annual Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) beer awards.

The 1,500-strong local chapter of CAMRA – an organisation dedicated to the promotion and responsible consumption of craft beer – conducts a poll every year to recognise the best beers, breweries, beer bloggers and more in British Colombia, Canada.

CAMRA members vote online and the results were announced at the Vancouver club’s annual general meeting.

Without further ado, these were the winners of CAMRA Vancouver awards in 2015:
