South Gloucestershire Show

Visitors to the South Gloucestershire Show this summer will have the chance to decide which is the area’s best beer.
The annual event, which runs on 6 and 7 August at a site in Henfield, is holding its first beer competition.  Five breweries that are based in South Gloucestershire are going head to head to see which brew comes out on top.
Great Western Brewery, Cotswolds Spring Brewery, Bath Ales, Severn Vale and Wickwar Brewery have all entered a pale ale and a bitter into the competition, which was launched by the Thornbury and Yate MP Luke Hall.  The beers will be available at the show as well as at local pubs.
Ballot forms will be available to pick up at pubs and the ballot box will be in the Beer Festival area at the Show.
