SIBA unveils speakers for BeerX

The speakers, who will address BeerX on Thursday 13 March, are: Tim Martin, founder of JD Wetherspoon; Dr Charlie Bamforth, UK and USA brewing industry guru; Steve Grossman of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Nicky Morgan, economic secretary to the treasury.

Also included will be presentations by Fuller’s head brewer John Keeling and Roger Ryman of St Austell Brewery, who will share their brewing expertise. SIBA brewers looking to export can benefit from a series of seminars and sessions with buyers from export markets.

SIBA chief executive Julian Grocock said “Our goal for BeerX is to present British beer at its best to a wide ranging audience. With a line up of high quality speakers, a programme of seminars from respected industry experts, a Festival of Beer, as well as the announcement of our brewing and business award winners, BeerX 2014 looks set to build on the success of last year’s inaugural event.”

BeerX takes place from 11-15 March at iceSheffield. It will showcase around 300 SIBA regional award-winning beers as they are judged in the UK’s biggest national beer competition.
