There were just enough contributions*to make this difficult but we managed, after some barely simmering debate, to pick two winners.Our favourite UK entry was from a new beer blogger, Tom Morphy, whose*post ‘The Ale in Wales: a*Welsh drinker’s look through the Good Beer Guide 2016’ (http://hatinghard.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/the-alein-wales-welshdrinkers-look.html)*offers a handy survey of territory we don’t know combined with some interesting commentary on CAMRA’s flagship annual publication. We’ll be in touch by email to sort out a delivery address for the bundle of goodies below. (Disclosure: some*of which were sent as samples (http://boakandbailey.com/samples-pr/disclosure-stuff-we-got-free/).)

A Watney’s Red Barrel half-pint glass
A set of BrewDog posters, key-ring and stickers
A set of vintage beer mats from our collection
A copy of the Mikkeller home-brewing book
A rare edition of CAMRA’s glossy*magazine What’s Brewing*from 1981
The 1978*Good Beer Guide
A copy of the BFI DVD set*Roll Out the Barrel
A copy of Brew Britannia

* * *Of the overseas entries, we most enjoyed Andreas Krenmair’s ‘19th Century Brewing Methods in Germany and Austria (http://dafteejit.com/2015/12/19th-century-brewing-methods-in-germany-and-austria/)’*which mined a couple of obscure texts for specific details on how beer was made in several important cities. Home-brewers might find prompts for some interesting experiments therein. We’ll be arranging a prize for*Andreas that doesn’t involve couriering a box to Berlin.

* * *We said we weren’t going to do a round-up but what the heck: here are all the other posts of eligible length (1500 words+) posted to the hashtag on Facebook and Twitter.
