THE INTERNATIONAL BREWING AWARDS celebrate a long and successful history. Started in 1888, they are often dubbed ‘the Oscars of the brewing industry’ – and with good reason.
An Award is a recognition by fellow professional brewers that a beer is an outstanding commercial example of its style. The Competitions were first run in 1888 – constantly developed to reflect the global market for beer.
The superb technical installation, including draught beers under gas, ensures integrity of product and dispensed to the Judges at the brewers’ recommended temperature. Stewards are all from within the industry, ensuring integrity of pour and dispense to the judges.
All Judges are currently practising brewers. With 9 broad categories and 34 classes, linked to the consumer experience, there is a place for every beer with every beer having a chance of winning – even those new or innovative variations on styles.
