EAST Anglian beer drinkers have given three Suffolk beers their vote in a regional awards.

Greene King IPA was voted the east of England's favourite cask beer in the first ever Best of British Beer Awards, following a 'beer election' held in local pubs across the region.

In second place was its Abbot Ale, and third was Adnams' Broadside.

Drinkers from across the region voted for their favourite cask ale at 'polling stations' inside their local Cask Masque-accredited pubs, using special voting forms printed on beers mats ready for posting in bar-top ballot boxes.
