We had a trip down to the House of Commons on Tuesday 27th Jan on invitation from industry publication Off Licence News. We met some beery compadres and came back with an award!
Thanks to everyone over the last 14 months for supporting our little specialist beer shop in Sheffield, I raise a glass to you all.
Off Licence News said:
"Leading industry names and MPs attended the event organised by trade magazine Off Licence News to recognise the retailers both big and small making the biggest contribution to selling our national drink.
The awards singled out the top independent beer shops from across the UK – along with the best national drinks chain and supermarket.
Rosie Davenport, Editor at Off Licence News Editor, said: “Pubs do a great job promoting beer, but the swathes of great beer shops play just as important a role in enhancing consumers’ appreciation.
More people are drinking great beer at home than ever before and the businesses recognised at Off Licence News’ Celebrate British Beer Awards are dedicated to sourcing and selling interesting brews and supporting the UK’s vibrant brewing scene. “
