There's a distinctly British theme to this month's beer club as we are featuring some of the finalists we discovered when we recently judged CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain competition. Marble Brewery's Chocolate Marble was crowned Champion and in a total coincidence we'd already featured it in our July Beer Club.  As you'll know we don't repeat beers in the Club, so we've left that one out but have included some of the other contenders for the 2014 crown, including Burton Bridge, Neath Ales and Dunham Massey.

It's not just about British beer though as there's also some treats from four Dutch masters!  The Netherlands is a hive of beery activity at the moment and September features Rooie Dop, De Molen, Kaapse Brouwers and La Trappe.  La Trappe and De Molen are regulars in our range but Rooie Dop and Kaapse are a tad harder to come by so we're very excited to include them this month too. Rooie Dop won RateBeer's Best New Brewery award last year and as a personal endorsement, my fri

We're also expecting a delivery from the tremendously exciting Left Hand Brewing Company from Colorado very soon and if that arrives in time we'll be popping their Milk Stout (96 on Rate Beer!) in as well!

As ever, let us know what you think of the beers we've included this month and most of all if you discover something amazing, tell us and we'll see if we can add it to our range.
