Go to and vote for your favourite. There is a guide to voting on the home page.

This year the styles of beer you can vote for have been updated. There are now 12 different categories you can choose your favourites from. This reflects the growth in the different styles of beers that are brewed, You can review the new beer styles in this pamphlet:
