Each year CAMRA invites American breweries to enter the Champion American Beer at the Great British Beer Festival Competition.  The competition is the longest running and largest competition for American cask-conditioned beers.  The competition grows each year as we add more regional partners across the country that assist with consolidation transportation logistics.

Here's how it works: There is no cost to enter the competition, just a beer donation, and delivery of the beer to New England!  You don't even need to provide the firkin.  CASC, the presenters of the New England Real Ale eXhibition cask conditioned beer festivals, donates the use of their cooperage. CAMRA covers the cost to ship empty cooperage to participating brewers, who then fill it and ship their filled cask(s) to the overseas shipping consolidation point in the Boston area. With CAMRA's help, we then forward the beer to London where the competition is held on the festival floor at the Great British Beer Festival.

Logistics:  The largest obstacle to participation is the ability to ship filled firkin to New England for forwarding.  The fine folks at Stone Brewing Company, Heavy Seas, and Brooklyn Brewery generously assist by consolidating casks from their area, and forwarding them to New England.

We are always looking for more help in this area.  If you are interested in entering the competition, and have distribution channels to New England, we are looking for more partners to help us expand the geographic scope of the competition.
