Stevenage Beer Festival 2016 – a belated report

Thanks to everyone who attended the first Stevenage Beer Festival back in February.

The overall verdict was that it was a success although there are of course things we can learn for next time – and we’re certainly hoping that there will be a next time!

For those who wanted to know what the most popular beers and ciders were, here’s the list!


  • The winner was Redemption Trinity – we will be looking to visit Redemption Brewery later in the year to award their certificate.
  • Joint runners-up: Weird Bear Pankot Palace & Atom Halflife and
  • Joint third place went to: Brewsters Decadence & Milton Nero

Cider & perry:

  • The 4 following were the most popular: Orchard Pig Maverick; Orchard Pig Marmalade; Apple Cottage T’Orchard; Farmer Jim’s Perry


  • Joint winners: Mongozo Coconut & Grisette Fruits of the Forest


  • Winner – Cloudwater Dark Lager
  • Runner-up – Pig & Porter Honey Hill Wit

We will act upon the suggestions that you made to make the festival better – such as availability of seating, choice of food – so thanks for your feedback.

One or two people were interested in seeing the festival programme again – so here it is:


Now – onto Hitchin in June!
