A Tonne of Malt for the Champion Lager

Barrett Burston Malting has come on board to present the Champion Lager trophy at 2020 Independent Beer Awards, and will be awarding the winner with a literal tonne of malt.  

Barrett Burston say it's because indie brewers are the lifeblood of our amazing industry and after the events of 2020, they want to support in any way they can.  Jake Jacob, President of Barrett Burston Malting, calls indie brewers  "the new pioneers" of the beer industry, and says that Barret Burton is pleased to have been able to continue malting throughout 2020 to keep supply going.

“The independent brewing Industry has demonstrated great agility and resilience in the face of unprecedented adversity this year, it has been fantastic to see indie brewers band together as a community and support each other,” Jacob says.  “It’s an honour and privilege to be able to celebrate and support indie brewers at this year’s Indies Awards.”

This year the Indies is going online, with a awards virtual awards ceremony, and Indies parties happening, within gathering restrictions, around the country.  Entries have been extended and now close on September 16.
