Headline Partner - Budweiser Budvar
Not many people in here in the UK realise that we at Budvar know a thing or two about gastropubs. On our home turf in the Czech Republic we run half a dozen of them under the Budvarka brand name and these, plus our restaurant at our brewery tap, are regarded as some of the best eateries in the republic. What they have in common is that we have made them all beacons of first class cuisine, both traditional Czech and modern European.
It's because we've got these gastropub credentials that we understand something of the blood, sweat, toil and tears that go into creating them and why we can take so much pleasure in sponsoring this important event. Of course the blood, sweat, toil and tears that is really at the core of our being is devoted to brewing Budweiser Budvar. It's about creating a lager using nothing but natural materials in a 100 day brewing cycle, 90 of them spent in secondary fermentation (the competition thinks going to 30 is magic) and every drop is brewed at our one and only brewery in Southern Bohemia.
That's why mainstream lager drinkers love us as well as craft-beer aficionados, beer-writers and other beery pundits. Besides enjoying
support across a whole spectrum of educated drinkers we also live in harmony with a greater variety of foods and dishes than any other beer. But being well-informed you probably know that already.

Sponsoring Business Innovation of the Year
Hooper's is a range of traditionally British alcoholic brews that takes its name from William Hooper, who spent the early 19th Century travelling the globe to find innovative ideas that he could bring back to British drinkers. He was inspired to create a new range of refreshing alcoholic beverages and Hooper's was born. Today's bottle design is inspired by the hoops used in barrel making which gave
rise to his now famous surname.
Hooper's Dandelion & Burdock, Ginger Brew and Cloudy Lemonade have been created using natural flavours with no artificial colours and are
designed to be served over ice. Hoopers is the perfect partner to great British food.
The Hooper's range meets evolving consumer needs for refreshing, classically British flavours with heritage and a contemporary twist. The brand is supported with a range of quality POS items including branded glasses, ice buckets, chalk boards and tin plaques.
