Steel City Beer Festival – Champion beer awards

As usual all the beers in our Steel City Beer & Cider Festival last October were judged by a blind tasting panel to find out which were the very best beers in the festival.

We’ll be presenting the certificates to as many of the winning brewers as we can during Sheffield Beer Week with some to be presented at a mini award ceremony at the Siba BeerX Brewers Yard on Thursday 17th March, 7:30pm.

If you are at the BeerX on Thursday evening, do pop out and see us and the winning brewers! Also at BeerX on the Thursday is a big festival bar, brewery bars, meet the brewer events and street foods. Advance tickets ordered online are £8.80 with a £2 discount available for CAMRA members, students and HM Forces, entry tickets are also available on the door but cost more! Beer is served in 1/3 pint tasters costing £1.10 each.
