Phipps NBC has secured the few very last casks from Sheffield's legendary Kelham Island Brewery for this year's Beckets Park Beer Festival.The Independent brewing world was rocked by the announcement earlier this month that Kelham Island was closing down for good. Its Pale Rider brew was CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain in 2004 and since then it has been regarded as one of the country's finest brewers. These three casks will definitely be the last time anyone sees and tastes genuine Kelham Island Sheffield brewed beers at a beer festival as brewing has finished with all casks sold.The weather is expected to be dry and warm, a perfect accompaniment to any delicious cold ale or beer.
