Driving quality. celebrating excellence.

We are excited to open entries for the 2020 Indies Awards.

ENTRIES NOW CLOSED

In a year of that has been challenging in unexpected ways, quality is more important than ever. This is an opportunity for brewers to be rewarded for their hard work, and to benchmark their beer against their Indie peers. 

In the interest of safety and assurance the awards will go ahead we have made some changes for 2020. The main difference is judging will be done at smaller locations around the country, rather than one central location. Because of this, judges will be selected by the IBA technical committee, instead of the usual application process. 

This change gives flexibility to judge in smaller groups without the need for excessive travel. Unfortunately that means we won't be able to judge kegged or draught beer. All entries will need to be packaged and comply with the mandatory labelling regulations outlined on the IBA website
