Best Beer Selection

Gold Winner Stillwell Beer Bar

Silver Winner The Maxwell’s Plum

Bronze Winner Stubborn Goat Gastropub

“One thing for us is beer styles,” says Stillwell’s Christopher Reynolds. “It’s about having a broad selection but keeping it focussed and small.” With a strong taste for local craft creations and no shortage of one-offs and cask brews, there’s something for every beer drinker here. And with that Stillwell, with just 12 taps, wins Best Beer Selection, beating out nine-time champ Maxwell’s Plum and its 60 different draughts. “The thing about having 12 taps is that they’re turning over constantly. We try to find the best beers we can get our hands on but are deadly serious about handling those beers, the temperature, the pouring, insanely clean glassware,” adds Reynolds. “It’s a very volatile, delicate product.”
