The beer, which up against 730 other brews, was praised for its perfect balance and good drinkability • Matt Wall, from Southampton, has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise £25,000 to get his WoW Brewery idea off the ground • Winter seasonal Foxtrot Ale (3.9%) from Chiltern Brewery will be available from Friday, November 7. This dark draught winter ale is irresistibly smooth, complex and cunningly tasty, says the brewer, bristling with chocolate malt character and dark berry hop notes. Rich claret in colour it matches beautifully with seasonal favourites like red meat and full fat hard cheeses • Glasgow's WEST is developing a Baltic porter as its 2014 winter beer, which should be available at the end of November. Expect a rich beer with spicy, aromatic flavours
