Farmers Blonde has been awarded Bronze in the Cask Bitters & Pale Ales category at SIBA’s North East Independent Beer Regional Awards 2017.
The prestigious awards, run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) at the “B-Fest” Beer, Blues & Folk festival held at the Barbican Centre in York, are judged by brewers and beer experts and seen very much as the ‘brewers choice’ awards in the industry.
The competition is entered by breweries from the whole of Yorkshire, as well as Humberside, Cleveland, Durham, Tyne & Wear and Northumberland.
The “B-Fest” Beer, Blues & Folk Festival featured 200 of the region’s best independent beers, served through 40 rotating handpulls, alongside local craft cider, street food and live music from top local bands. The SIBA North East Region’s “Independent Beer Awards” were judged immediately before the festival opened its doors, locals were the first to try the best-of-the-best beers from the competition.
