You may have been following both here and elsewhere that two of the three finalists for Best Drinks Producer in BBC Radio 4's Food and Farming Awards (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03nycpj/profiles/drinks-producer) are BrewDog and Thornbridge. (I was talking about it on Radio 4 just the other day, briefly, and you can listen here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03wgzqq).)

The decision is not an easy one (to put it mildly) and I've been having fascinating conversations with people at beer events and in pubs all over the place. Even the comments on my last blog post about it seem to be split down the middle.

Not forgetting that there is a very fine English sparkling wine among the finalists too, this is a rivalry that's inspired speculation up and down the country.

I don't normally give blatant plugs to commercial businesses, but mail order company AlesbyMail (http://www.alesbymail.co.uk/) have been inspired to put together a special BrewDog v Thornbridge case of beer, so you can drink and argue with each other about which is best, or even if it is possible to compare one to the other.

The case consists of:

5AM Saint
Dead Pony Club
Cocoa Psycho
Libertine Black Ale
Punk IPA
Bourbon Baby
(all 330ml bottles)

(all 500ml bottles)

and costs £33.99 from here (http://www.alesbymail.co.uk/shop/mixed-cases/brewdog-and-thornbridge-12-bottle-mixed-case).

The final decision on who wins is being made on Wednesday 19th March. The winner is announced on 1st May.
