In 2015, brewing members of Hopshires will be able to enter a bottled beer for competition to determine the Hopshires Champion Bottled Beer. Qualifying beers will only use hops grown in the Hopshires region. The beers will be judged by a panel of hop growers, bottled beer shop owners and members of the public recruited by the Three Counties Showground with the champion beer being announced in the week of the Malvern Autumn Show, 26th & 27th September, at the Three Counties Showground.
Hopshires bottled beers will be on sale at the Hopshires stand in the Orchard and Hopyard Pavilion on the show weekend
