Following three days of deliberation from an international panel of 38 judges from around the world, 82 medals were awarded, including winners from Cambodia, China, Czech Republic, Finland, Norway, Taiwan, Thailand, USA and the UK. 

For the first time in its 138-year history, Manchester hosted the brewing industry ‘Oscars’ which date back to 1886 and have a rich history championing the world’s best brewers.

The judging for The International Brewing Awards took place over three days between 19th – 21st March and provided an unparalleled opportunity for brewers to have their products evaluated by internationally acclaimed, commercially practicing international brewers.

Rob McCaig, Chair of Beer Judging, said: “We’ve had such an outstanding line up of judges from all corners of the world, and they’ve all done a remarkable job tasting and evaluating some of the finest beers from around the globe.

“This year proved to be one of the toughest yet to determine which of the beers were deserving of a medal. We had an exceptional amount of great quality beers enter this year, making the job of our judging panel extremely difficult. It’s a shame we couldn’t award more medals, as there were so many beers that were deserving of the accolade – some of which narrowly missed out.”

All the gold, silver and bronze medal winners announced at Depot Mayfield, Manchester will collect their medals at an official Awards Ceremony on 1st May 2024 at The Guildhall in London, when 12 trophy winners will also be announced.
