SIBA (Midlands) Champion Beer Competition
We are very pleased to confirm that that the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) Midlands Region will be holding their annual SIBA Champion Beer of the Midlands Area competition at Peterborough Beer Festival on Tuesday 20th August. The SIBA Beer Awards are run across eight regions, with the champions from each region moving forward to the national competition at Beer X. The awards represent the very best beer from the UK’s independent brewers and are judged by fellow brewers and industry experts making these awards the “Brewers’ Choice” awards in the UK. The competition will take place before the festival opens to the public, then all the competition beers will be available for visitors as soon as the winners are announced and the awards presentation has taken place, on the Main Stage at around 5 pm. There will be around 180 cask beers in the SIBA competition across a range of 10 categories from dark beers, pale ales, IPAs and bitters as well as strong beers and speciality beers. There will be only ONE cask of each competition beer so an early visit to the festival is strongly recommended. The competition beers will be in ADDITION to the festival beers, so we'll have around 450 different cask beers this year.
Peterborough Beer Festival, truly offering a unique opportunity to sample an unprecedented range of cask beers in one location.

Peterborough Beer Festival Home-brewing Competition 2019
This year we'll be running the brewing competition for any amateur brewer to enter a beer in two categories. The winner will be given the chance to brew their beer at a professional brewery in the Peterborough area and have their beer on the singles bar at the beer festival. The two categories are under 4% abv and 4.1% abv and over. There is no style category, the choice is yours. Remember if your beer needs 6 months in a whisky barrel then maybe rethink your entry! Judging will take place at the start of June with brewing for the beer festival in July. NOTE: There will be a maximum of ten beer entries in each category meaning only one entry per person overall. If all 20 slots are not filled then people will be allowed to enter more. Entry is on a first to email me basis. I'll reply to confirm your submission. I'll keep people in reserve if needed. Beers need to be with me by the 31st May and must be in 3x330ml bottles. Please do not attach labels, elastic bands are fine. So what you need to do: Email me with your name, contact number and which category you're entering, Details of beer drop off/collection and how to label will be emailed to you nearer the time. Feel free to make others aware, especially people who are not on Facebook and shoot across any questions. Thanks, Mark - email: moc.liamg@eorw.kram
