2015 Australian International Beer Awards Presentation Evening

Join the who’s who of beer and brewing and share a celebratory beer with this year’s winners at the 2015 AIBA Presentation Dinner Presented by Barrett Burston and Grain Corp. 

The champion trophies will be announced following an inspired three course dinner created by local and international guest chefs. Commencing with entrée from Brooklyn Brewery’s finest Andrew Gerson from the USA and followed by main from local chef, Merricote’s Rob Kabboord, both courses will be matched to a 2014 award winning brew.

Accompanying a very special dessert course created by dessert extraordinaire, Pierre Roelofs is the unveiling of this year’s   AIBA collaboration between 2014 Champion Small, Medium and Large Breweries, ‘Girt By Three’. This brew promises to be a celebration of Australia’s rich brewing history as well as a nod to its future! 

An array of beers from around the globe will be on offer throughout the evening in an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation.

This is the brewing industry’s night of celebration and is not to be missed!
