2015 Steel City Beer Festival Awards

As you all no doubt remember, Sheffield had a very successful beer festival at the end of last year, complete with the regular judging panel selecting the best beers of the 200+ on offer. As the winning breweries were spread around the country, Sheffield CAMRA took the opportunity of presenting the awards during SIBA’s recent BeerX exhibition when they would all be available. In case you need reminding, here are the winners, with photos of them accepting their awards.

About Paul Crofts

Paul has been a committee member since 2014, as well as being on the festival committee. ‘I have enjoyed all the various roles I have played in that time, particularly my functions at [the 2017] festival, and I was delighted to be press-ganged into being the Festival Organiser for [the following] year (thanks Louise!). ‘As well as being fond of “lowering a couple for the tonsils”, I'm also a big music fan, particularly live music. Feel free to stop me for a chat anytime you see me in the pub (particularly if you want to sponsor something at the festival).’
