We shot this month’s video blog in Burton on Trent at the Brewing Industry International Awards, a prestigious competition that’s back after a six year absence. 800 beers from around the world judged only by active brewers – no beer writers, no industry figures, this was about excellence, peer-to-peer.
And there wasn’t too much emphasis on beers being ‘to style’. The focus was on ‘is this a great well-made beer?’ and ‘is this a beer that drinkers would/should love?’
Anyway, the competition took place in the reopened national Brewery Centre in Burton – a great location to talk all things beer. We talked to Steve Wellington in the new William Worthington Brewery and tasted a couple of beers.
Hope you enjoy!
