Brewers from thirteen top craft breweries got together to brew a special beer on Friday 22nd July to mark “Northern Craft” - our 10th summer beer festival.
Head Brewer Matt called in his generation of craft brewers to come and pool ideas. Brewers from Magic Rock, Thornbridge, Pivovar, Ashover, Cloudwater, Marble, Quantum, Siren, Buxton, Fyne, Runaway and Roosters collaborated.
Beer lovers attending the festival were able to watch the beer being brewed, a highly hopped session IPA, which will be on sale in a few weeks.
Throughout the three days of Northern Craft 8 and a half pints of beer a minute (or a pint every 7 seconds) were sold. During 33 hours of opening from noon on Thursday to 11pm on Saturday, 243 casks and kegs, of 106 different beers from 29 breweries were drunk dry.
