New Partnership Program 

We’re pleased to say we’ve seen a significant increase in Associate Members over the past two years which we hope is a testament to your faith in our ability to assist and grow the Australian independent beer industry.

As a result of this increase we felt it was the right time to look at how we meet your aims and objectives by delivering meaningful and measurable benefits while at the same time meeting the needs of our brewery members.

In response we have restructured our Associate Member offering to ensure that you’re provided with exclusive access to the customers you want to attract by offering services that turns their challenges into opportunities. Partnering with us also means that we can continue to work hard so the indie beer community thrives to achieve its objective of 15% market share over the next decade.

You can read more about this exciting opportunity in our IBA Partner Options Brochure.

It provides information on the many ways in which you can engage with the IBA and our 500+ Brewery and other Associate Members. So, as you consider the possibilities, we hope you find an opportunity that is right for your business. This is a new chapter for us, and as always, we’d love to chat and hear your views.

Please take the time to read through the IBA Partner Options Brochure and consider how you want to work with us. We’d suggest also talking this through with your colleagues as we are sure they’ll have a wealth of ideas as to how to maximise your investment. We’re going to give you a little time to think about it but here’s a quick summary of what you’ll need to do now:

  • If you want to stay with the current arrangements you don't need to do anything right now, we'll transfer you to Level 1 and be in touch if we need anything. If you have any questions, though, you can email Jaime, our Membership Coordinator extraordinaire at [email protected].
  • If you’d like to discuss moving to one of the new partnership models, please get in touch with Guy on +61 (0) 413 539 725 or [email protected] after the 26th of April.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you’re keen to partner with us as the IBA and indie beer community continue to evolve.
