During the 2018 Beer & Cider festival you voted for Kniveton Cider Company's 'Four in a corner' as cider of the festival and Old Sawley Brewery's 'Plummeth the Hour' as beer of the festival.

The certificate for Cider of the Festival was presented to Kniveton Cider Company owners Hannah and Kev at the September Branch meeting. It was a pleasure to present the award to a local cider producer and both Kev and Hannah work very hard to support the branch and to organise the ciders, cider bar and cider bar volunteers at the festival.

To present the certificate to Old Sawley brewery we took a trip across the border and were very pleased to be met by Roo (head brewer) and a number of members of the Erewash branch of CAMRA including Will who had arranged the evening. Roo gave us a tour of the brewery followed by the presentation of the certificate and then a very enjoyable evening discussing, and drinking, some of Old Sawley's great beers.

We noticed a framed print of the Facebook post we made to Old Sawley to let them know they had won the award so I think it is safe to say they are pleased to have received the award!
