The British brewing scene has never been more exciting, with hundreds of brewers producing thousands of distinctive, flavoursome beers ranging from light golden ales and delicate lagers to dark, rich stouts. And everyone knows of course that glass makes the perfect drinking partner – ensuring you enjoy the taste of these great British beers and nothing else.
There’s no odour from glass too, which is why it’s easy for it to preserve the amazing range of aromas of these special beers. Once you’ve had a beer from good glassware, there’s simply no going back.
Last weekend hundreds of brewers gathered in Sheffield at the annual BeerX event, the largest conference and beer festival for brewers and retailers in the UK.
Julian Grocock, Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) chief executive said: “To hold an industry event such as this in Sheffield is fantastic, but to be able to host a festival of beer for the public alongside makes it even better. We think people will be astounded by the quality and variety of beers on offer.”
Unfortunately, Friends of Glass didn’t manage to attend the event, but we would love to hear from those who did! What was your favourite beer? Do you agree that all good beer comes in glass? Leave a comment below or get in touch with us on Facebook or tweet us @FriendsofGlassUK.
