The Indies, is 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.

It’s the largest 100% independent beer awards in Australia, and a great way for breweries to benchmark quality against peers, as judged by a broad range of judges, brewers and the wider industry.

Indies Awards to go Virtual

Due to the difficult decision to cancel BrewCon 2021 we are pushing on with the Independent Beer Awards this year. You’ll remember we successfully delivered the ceremony online in 2020 so now we are working towards a bigger and better version for mid-October this year, including official state parties once again. Stay tuned for confirmation of the date and opportunities to get involved.
