***See below***

The above now proceed into a county round for judging as Lancashire Area winners. Then if successful, they compete with the both Cumbria and the Isle of Man winners for the West Pennines Regional award, which puts them in top 16 in the country. Next up, a shortlist of 4 pubs or clubs is announced for the National CAMRA awards, with the ultimate winners announced thereafter.

***The Branch felt due to National CAMRA’s redefinition of real cider in the summer of 2021, that we did not have enough information that the cider regularly being sold in pubs in our area, matched the new definition to be able to “legitimately” give out awards.***
