Freedom Brewery has retained its crown — winning King of Craft at Casual Dining for a second year running. It took the top spot with its (vegan certified) Freedom Pils – Pilsner Lager.
As in previous years, it was a close-run competition. Over the last two days at the show, the 2018 judges — including dozens of VIP drinks buyers, press and beer experts — have been sampling their way around the many delights of the Craft Beer & Cider Pavilion. It’s a tough job…
