At the beginning of the month our Business Development Manager Stu (Stuart Haggar) attended this years’ SIBA Midlands Awards at the Nottingham Rugby Club. The event gathers SIBA members in the Midlands region to not only put forward their beers to compete in the various categories but also to sample and judge. SIBA explains their events as ‘representing 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.’
As a Silver Supplier Associate Member of SIBA we were unable to enter the brewing competition (we manufacture beer packaging rather than the beer itself!) so instead, Stu had the job of judging (which meant sampling a rather large amount of beers).
“The event was good fun, meeting new and old faces – great beers too!” said Stu.
Saxon Packaging sponsored the Small Pack Premium Bitters & Pale Ales category, of which Stu presented the awards. Pictured below is Stu alongside the Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners.
Gold – Thornbridge Brewery
Bronze – Weal Ales Brewery
Congratulations to all the winners of the event and we look forward to seeing fellow SIBA members at the next one.
