Tesco is now seeking entries for its 2001 Spring Beer Challenge. The competition has helped create new national beer brands, including Badger Golden Champion, Young's Acclaim and McEwan's Number One Champion Ale. The competition has a sought-after prize of 36 weeks exclusive listing with the multiple. Previous winners have continued to be listed beyond this period and been stocked by other multiples. Tesco receives entries from all over the world and last spring's competition attracted 85 from 48 breweries. There are separate categories for large and small breweries. The small brewer winner has distribution allocated to it in Tesco stores in geographical areas best suited to it. The large brewer winner is nationally distributed. Judging is in January and the beers go on shelf in April. {{DRINKS }}
