Chief Judge Ian Chant said the Beer Show is an opportunity for brewers to showcase their talents.
“It is difficult for many small brewers to get in front of consumers and have their voice heard. Competition brings a wider range of products into the spotlight and gives consumers assistance meeting their needs – a fantastic tool for them, as they can have confidence in the panel of judges, the beers having been discussed and ‘anointed’ by experts.”
