A win for @weringo, congratulations. Check your email.
You will also start the next competition on -5pts because there are always side effects with drinking.

Thank you to everyone that entered, hope your horizons have been broadened.
I'll post some stats later on.

Quite a few re-submissions as most of you decided to capitalise on the extra bonus points on offer.
A couple I couldn't quite decipher or the information wasn't available so I went with best fit.



Beers of the World will be back for Round 6 (ish) next year

Crocodile Tiers from DEYA. I really enjoyed this DIPA, soft mouthfeel and you don't realise its 8%. Would definitely have it again. 4.21 on Untappd and well worth it.

Argh! I’ve got that super cold, so I’ll blame that for my terrible decision.

I reentered my A beer, which I feel is apt. We’ve come full circle!

Well done @weringo , if you’re in Shoreditch during the last weekend of November, send me a trust and I’ll buy you a pint!

Well done to all (esp @weringo ) and many thanks to Mark for hosting.

It's the first year I've entered and I'll definitely do it again.
I've still got a lot of my entries to drink and the ones that I have already had, have been an education to say the least. Some where nice, others beyond disgusting. My Holiday entry was Christmas Bomb! that set me back £13.90 :o It was truly awful but I downed it because it was £13.90 :cry:

Anyway, my final entry was this, but I'm in no rush to open it...

Man i'd forgotten how good that French Martini beer was!

Weringo has definitely been having the most enjoyment, i'd say about half of my beers i'd never drink again!

This was my entry for round Z:

My original entry was the same as my round X but like many others I resubmitted for the additional points.

Congratulations to @weringo for the win, and many thanks to @Bickaxe for taking the time to run this once again.

As for the above beer was quite well balanced for a sour but still pretty much rates as an average Brewdog beer for me and it's certainly one I would not buy again!

I also resubmitted one of my previous entries. I had something else planned but based on the mythical creature bonus I chose this instead:

Haha my fridge is full of mainly 10+% beers

Cheers for organising, been great fun and a good excuse to buy more beer!

My entry wasn't great but never had a Jamaican beer so had to try it.

Great round guys, well done everyone.

@Bickaxe, would love to buy you a pint, as I'm sure some others would. What's your PayPal or other preferred method of virtual-pint-receiving?

I'll have to refuse that one thank you, what you have all done is review a bunch of beers that I may never get round to trying (especially sours but the missus now had a list) so that's thanks enough. I enjoyed seeing what people came up with.

Also, Weringo got a beer voucher for winning so it seems a little pointless to effectively return that to me.

Awesome job organising this @Bickaxe. The bonus points were a great added element although ended up costing me a lot of money as I had to order a certain number of beers to meet the minimum delivery threshold, but had to do this on a weekly basis once the criteria was announced :p. The beer tokens were a very nice surprise so thanks for that! Would love to chip in for a beer advent calendar or something as a thank you for your hard work.

Here was my entry for the weekend. Originally entered Pastore DDH Denari but was told by my gf that the picture is probably an eagle and not mythical, so foretunately found this one at the pub at 3pm on Saturday

Alas I'll be away that weekend in Germany hopefully enjoying some more beers!

This was my awful submission.

Thank you @Bickaxe for running this. I appreciate you taking all my non-beer related entries to a beer competition, it's been a lot of fun.

And I wasn't last :)

Agreed the bonus points were a great idea.

I guess that level of effort explains why you were top and i was bottom :p

In fact, @Bickaxe in your stats, is there any kind of alternative table if you ignored bonus points to see if anything changes?
