Results of the Great British Beer Festival

August 1-5th, in Leeds, UK, the yearly GBBF was held. Sadly, once again,
I was not present. However, yesterday's "What's Brewing" gives the results
of the competition:

Supreme Champion Beer of Britain:
Chiswick Bitter (Fullers/Griffin Brewery) Closest to this in the USA
is Fullers ESB (that I know of)

Highly Commended:
Theakston's Old Peculier (available in the USA in bottles or kegs,
but of course this is not cask beer in the USA)

Runner-up
Timothy Taylor's Landlord (strong pale ale) And I don't believe this
is available in the USA
