The ‘National Association of Wine and Beermakers’ is the primary organisation in England that draws together individuals, clubs,
and federations in England who are involved in amateur wine and beer making.
The primary activity of the ‘National Association of Wine and Beermakers’, or NAWB, is to stage the world’s premier Annual show for the hobby of home brewing. The ‘National’ is normally held at the end of March or early April. It is a two-day show with the AGM and Conference held on the same weekend.
Between 1996 and 2010, the ‘National’ alternated between two venues - Scarborough and Weston-Super-Mare. However, Scarborough became too expensive; so the committee decided to move to a new venue for the Annual show in 2011 and Hull was chosen. It was hoped that this new venue is sited conveniently enough to enable members from all over the country to travel to it. From 2014 the show moved from Weston-Super-Mare to Coventry and a very successful show was held there. In 2017 the show moved from Hull to Manchester.
So you are stuck at home during lockdown. You can’t go the pub, a wine bar or a restaurant. You have improved your culinary skills, but you need a new hobby. How about trying Homebrew? It could even save you money!
UPDATE: It is with regret that, due to the continued issues with Covid and the uncertainty of being able to meet in large gatherings, the committee have decided to postpone the Annual show again this year.
The Coventry hotel has been booked for March 18th-20th 2022. The schedule will remain the same as
it was for 2020, apart from the dates.
This means that the members recipes for 2020 will now be for 2022, and the 2021 recipes will be for 2023. The same applies to the other classes
that change each year, i.e. the liqueur class 24, the guest beer class, and the judges classes. The entry form will be amended in due course for the
change of dates and updated on the web site. We hope that members have retained their show schedules as they will not be reprinted for 2022. All
details are the web site.
