The Brewers Society has chosen the Beer Hall at Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley to host its annual 2013 North West Beer Festival. 

SIBA The Society for Independant Brewers has made the decision to move the huge event from Manchester (where it was held for the last 3 years) to the Lake District, as a recognition of the strength of the brewing industry throughout Cumbria.
