SIBA Midlands Beer Festival

One of our Taster Management Advisers Marie Pohler recently went to Nottingham to assist in the judging of the ‘Bottled Gold Beers’ at the SIBA Midlands Beer Festival. After the one day festival, the judges decided that the Hooky Gold from Hook Norton Brewery Co.Ltd was the best tasting. Silver place was awarded to the Thornbridge Brewery for their Kipling beer whilst third place went to the Ein Stein beer produced by the Lymestone Brewery.  This week Marie will be heading to Manchester to deliver a seminar about off-flavours at the SIBA Great Northern Beer Festival.
