Results of the voting for the 2018 CAMRA Good Beer Guide entries, and voting for Medway Pub, Cider Pub and Club of the Year 2017
The voting window for both categories closed at 1pm on Sunday 5 February at the Branch Social in the Roffen Club, 41 New Road, Rochester, ME1 1DX. We are very pleased to announce that the numbers of members who voted were 60% up on the previous year.
2018 Good Beer Guide entries
14 pubs (the maximum number we are allowed to submit to the GBG) have been selected on the basis of voting by Branch members. The 15th & 16th pubs on the list are 1st and 2nd reserves in case any of the 14 have to be deleted between now and the GBG publication date due to closure, change of landlord/manager, beer quality, etc.
All 16 pubs are now in the process of being surveyed by Branch members in the coming weeks, and the necessary GBG paperwork completed for submission to CAMRA HQ via Kent Region.
CAMRA HQ enforce an embargo on announcing entries until publication date in August 2017. So, don't ask before then.

A winner in each category, based on members votes, have been chosen. These are not covered by a CAMRA HQ embargo, and can be seen here Medway Branch Awards - 2017.
