The finalists of the SIBA Business Awards 2019 have been revealed, with winners being announced next week at the association’s BeerX show, in Liverpool.

Neil Walker, chair of the judges, said: “The SIBA Business Awards 2019 represent our biggest competition ever, with a 25% increase in entries on last year, which was in itself a record breaking year for the awards. What has been particularly impressive, though, was the standard and quality of entries, with judges having a really difficult task separating an over-achieving pack!” 

The awards recognise excellence across the beer and brewing industry, from independent craft breweries making efforts to improve their green credentials or business efficiency, to bars, retailers and restaurants who have shown a talent for supplying the best beer in the UK.
