THE IBA

ABOUT THE IBA

On average, a new independent brewery opens in Australia every six days. Over 600 independently-owned breweries span the country, each one with its unique identity and contribution to Australian life. The Independent Brewers Association provides a united voice for independently-owned brewers across Australia.

We work with government agencies, industry, trade and international counterparts to represent the interests of Australian independent brewers. Working alongside our members, we seek to build a strong, sustainable future for our industry and to unify our sector under the vision of Quality Independent Beer Everywhere.

IBA EVENTS

Each year the IBA runs four key industry events:

  • BrewCon and the Trade Expo
  • The Independent Beer Awards (‘the Indies’)
  • Good Beer Week

We also run IBA Mash Ups at various locations and times around Australia.
