Following their hugely successful inaugural year in 2014, the Craft Beer Awards returns in 2015, celebrating the people, the ingredients, the processes and of course, the beer at the craft beer night of nights.

The Craft Beer Awards are an invaluable platform to showcase the continual improvement of Australian craft beer and provide a unique chance for brewers to benchmark themselves against the best in the business.

Entries for the Craft Beer Awards open on Monday 17th August and close Monday 31st August.

Last year newcomers to the scene Modus Operandi won the coveted Kegstar Champion Australian Craft Beer award with their beer Former Tenant. Jasmin Wearin of Modus Operandi, says, “The Craft Beer Awards truly reflect the needs and progressive nature of our craft beer industry and is unquestionably the night of nights on the craft beer calendar minus the gold Logies and fake tans!”

The Craft Beer Awards ceremony, a highlight on the annual craft beer calendar, will be held on Friday night the 23rd of October at a yet-to-be-disclosed location where the forward thinking and technically brilliant personalities of the craft beer industry come together to raise a glass to creativity, craft and class. Tickets will go on sale from Friday the 4th of September, 2015.

The Craft Beer Industry Association (CBIA) is the national body representing the craft beer industry and in 2014 began the Craft Beer Awards to encourage and support excellence in the industry. The competition, held during Sydney Craft Beer Week, is open to all Australian breweries and brewing companies eligible for CBIA membership.
