    I was thinking Westvleteren XII as its often cited as the best beer in the world. Wonder if anyone has entered it!

    My B is in, not happy/bit lazy, but I'm not a fan of Belgian beers (don't shoot me).

    I think with this one there's such a wealth of choice I just went for something standard, albeit a new spin on it. I'll go all-out on some of the other ones.

    Cracked open my other open option. This is quite nice for the first beer of the day! Like a lagery, slightly lighter ipa’ish Trappist. Apparently this is more of a table beer for the monks.

    Erm, I took it as midnight. There's no such time as 12:00am!

    @Bickaxe Can you confirm that please, it's supposed to be midnight on Saturdays, ie 00:00 on Sunday mornings.

    So it does...

    But one says pm and one says am :D

    This is why am and pm are rubbish, give us a deadline in 24 hour clock without any of this midday, am or pm ambiguity ;)

    Surprised you haven’t questioned if it’s BST or GMT... :D

    None of this 0000 nonsense either. It's either 2359 or 0001 for clarity ;)

    That's because GMT is the only option.

    That was for the first round only, the usual time will be entries by midday Saturday.

    The results thread will be made on a Sunday as sometimes I have other things going happening on Saturdays (like going to the pub)

    This looks great. Is it an online only kind of beer?
