THE votes are in and Wadworth's 6X is the people's choice as the favourite cask ale in Wales and the West in the first Best of British Beer Awards.
Wiltshire-based Wadworth's 6X has been chosen as the top tipple following a 'beer election', held in local pubs across the area.
Cask Marque, which organised the awards in association with national newspaper the Daily Telegraph, accredits pubs serving the perfect pint of cask ale.
The awards have the backing of organisations including the Campaign for Real Ale and the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group.
To determine the winner drinkers from across the region voted for their favourite cask ale at polling stations' inside their local Cask Marque accredited pubs, using special voting forms printed on beer mats provided ready for posting into bar-top ballot boxes All of the winning brewers will be invited to an awards lunch in London in May, to celebrate their success.
Fred West, Wadworth sales director, said: "Our brewers and pub retailers are absolutely delighted to have all of their care and skill in brewing and serving cask 6X recognised with this prestigious award.
"Our beers are brewed for drinkability and clearly the voters have confirmed their approval."
