Membership


The IBA has a clear mission: quality independent beer everywhere.

We’re here to educate and influence for the Benefit of Australian independent brewers. In our events, programs and campaigns we advocate, lift awareness, ensure quality and drive member value.

Strength in diversity

The diversity of our sector is both our biggest strength and our biggest challenge. In such a fragmented sector, IBA membership fees are an important investment in the coordination and sustained growth of our sector. Working closely with our members, the IBA plays a critical role in helping to level regulatory playing fields, promote the unique contribution Independent Brewers make to Australian life and ensure our sector works as smart as it does hard.

Types of Membership

There are three types of annual IBA membership.

Full membership: open to all Australian Independent Brewers.

Brewery in planning: offers most of the benefits of Full IBA membership while brewers await their excise/wholesaler/ producer licences.

Associate membership: available to all firms supplying or advising the Australian brewing industry. IBA Associate Membership is an effective way to reach the Australian brewing sector and is a prerequisite for participation as an exhibitor at BrewCon’s Trade Expo.
