As in the last 2 previous years Beerhouse organised the ‘People’s Choice Award’ and for a third year running the winner is Zamalek, old SAB’s Carling Black Label, showing what marketing and market share do to customer’s perception and how much work is still ahead for the craft beer movement to turn into a mass-market product. All other medals were rated by certified beer judges and sommeliers with a final best of show tasting where beers where judged for subjective ‘drinkability’
