Breweries line up for ale festival

Have your say

Breweries hailing from the Isle of Arran in Scotland to the tip of the UK mainland in Cornwall will be serving ales at this year’s SIBA BeerX festival in Sheffield.

The event, which takes place from March 16 to 19 at iceSheffield in Attercliffe, is more than doubling in size this year, and is set to feature 20 different brewery bars.

Each bar will offer two independent craft keg beers.

A lottery-style draw was used to select the breweries. Bakewell firm Thornbridge has secured a bar.
