The Independent Beer Awards 2021 is now open for entrants. 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.
This year we are back judging kegged product, after a focus on packaged product only in 2020, and because of this — and the incredible growth of independent breweries — we expect 2021 to be our biggest and most competitive competition yet.
Don’t forget: members receive discounted rates on entry fees and logistics. If you aren’t sure of your membership status contact [email protected] to double check, or join here to take advantage of our discount structure.

Entering breweries need to make sure they are familiar with entry and style guidelines before submitting. Detailed delivery information and labels will be sent to participating breweries once the registration process is complete.
