The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) has announced the 20 breweries which will feature at bars in its national trade show and beer festival, BeerX.
BeerX, which takes place from 16-19 March 2016 in Sheffield, will feature 20 different brewery bars run by the breweries themselves and featuring two independent craft keg beers, plus an array of bottles and cans of various strengths, styles, colours and flavours. Demand was high enough that members entered a lottery draw to select the breweries which would be given a place at the UK’s biggest beer industry trade show and beer festival. Nick Stafford, SIBA commercial director, said: "We think this is a great way to get people engaged with beer and also allows our members to get direct feedback at the point of sale.” The addition of the new bar space will double the size of the public ‘Festival of Beer’ with many beers being judged in SIBA’s National Beer competition, which is also held at BeerX.  “The great thing about the brewery bars is they allow brewers to choose the beers they are most proud of, whether that is a beer taking part in the SIBA competitions or a one off brew they believe to be really special and worth showcasing.” Stafford said. The 20 breweries selected for bars at BeerX 2016:
  1. Alphabet Brewing (Manchester) 
  2. Arran Brewery (Isle of Arran, Scotland)
  3. Bespoke Brewery (Gloucestershire)
  4. Box Social Brewing (Newcastle)
