We are planning on changing the date until later in the year (most likely the end of November). The original date clashes with the rugby world cup semi finals. We're waiting on confirmation from the venue but hope to announce very soon.

It was felt that stouts weren't representative of English Ales so they haven't been included.

Will either 12A. British Golden Ale or 12C. English IPA be included in this competition?
