BrewCon 2020: Postponed

Unfortunately due to COVID we have had to postpone BrewCon 2020, to be held in 2021. Members can access all of 2019's talks via the resources portal. For more information you can still access recent programs and prospectuses here. If you need to speak to someone at the IBA relevant contacts are below. 


Presented by the Independent Brewers Association (IBA), the Conference and Trade Expo exists to build excellence and best-practice in the Australian Beer Industry. The conference is the Australian Brewing Industry’s keystone event and is growing to be an education and trade event of international significance.

The last evening of the conference celebrates with the Indies, a night where the industry gets together, beer in hand, to support and celebrate the Independent Beer Industry. The Indies is a national competition organised by the IBA to celebrate the art and science of brewing and build greater consumer awareness of the excellence within Australian Independent Brewing.

The BrewCon Conference is programmed by IBA members and project groups. Presentation submissions will re-open once the new dates are confirmed.  The IBA encourages every aspect of the Australian Indie Beer Industry to apply. For inspiration please refer to previous programs.
