The SIBA Business Awards 2022 finalists have been revealed, showcasing the UK’s best breweries, taprooms, retailers, pubs and beer industry businesses.

The Awards, run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), seek to congratulate excellence in the brewing industry across a variety of categories, from pump clip, can and bottle design, to efforts taken by brewers to make their business more sustainable.  

SIBA also awards the UK’s best pubs, bars and retailers of craft beer from independent breweries. 

Chair of judges Neil Walker said: “Massive congratulations to all of this year’s finalists - not only did we see a huge sixty percent increase in entries compared to last year but the quality of entries was genuinely astounding, with some truly inspiring businesses in the running.  

“To have made it this far and been named a finalist in the 2022 awards is a huge achievement, and I wish you all the best of luck when we announce the overall winners at BeerX UK in Liverpool next month.” 

New awards

The 2022 Awards include three new categories in response to shifting consumer buying habits. These are the ‘UK’s Best Independent Craft Beer Retailer- Online’ award, as well as the titles ‘UK’s Best Independent Craft Brewery Webshop’, and ‘Community Engagement’. The latter accolade is aimed at breweries which have established themselves as assets to their local communities over the last year. 

Amongst the 2022 judging panel were Caroline Nodder, Independent Brewer​ and SIBA British Craft Beer Report​ editor, Kate Oppenheim, KO Media​ and BII News​ editor, and Barry Watts, SIBA head of public affairs and policy.  

The SIBA Business Awards 2022 will be presented on Wednesday 16 March at BeerX UK in Liverpool by acclaimed beer writer and consultant Peter Brown. Brown has been named British Guild of Beer Writers’ ‘Beer Writer of the Year’ four times, and has won three Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards, among other accolades.
