The overall champion beer of the Sheffield CAMRA's Steel City Beer & Cider Festival is Thornbridge Jaipur IPA, a classic well hopped Indian Pale Ale. Interestingly, this is the first batch of Jaipur from the new Bakewell Riverside Brewery to be entered into a beer festival - a repeat of when Jaipur was first launched at the old Thornbridge Hall Brewery, it won Sheffield's Steel City Beer Festival that year too! The tasting notes from the brewery describe the beer as initially soft and smooth but with the flavours building in the mouth to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey, which converts to powerful but pleasant and enduring bitter finish.
Joint Silver Medal winner is Bollington White Nancy (a Best Bitter) and The Brew Company St Petrus Stout.
Bronze Medal winner is Bollington Nights, a mild.
Congratulations to The Brew Company of Sheffield and Thornbridge of Bakewell, both local brewers producing great beer, and an even bigger well done to Bollington Brewery, a brewery that has only been up and running for about a year, based in Cheshire.
The full list of winners by category and information about the beer festival can be found on the festival website at www.sheffieldcamra.co.uk/beerfestival.htm
