Registration for the 2024 International Brewing & Cider awards is now open.

Entries opened on Sunday 1 October and will close on Thursday 1 February 2024.

The judging process will then take place between 19 and 21 March next year, with the winners announced on 22 March 2024.

Very best

Entrants will see their products evaluated by a panel of practicing brewers and cidermakers with the winner set to gain recognition on an international stage, showcasing their product as an outstanding example of its style.

Brewers and cidermakers can submit their product into nine beer categories with 36 classes and three cider categories with 15 classes.

The classes are differentiated by alcoholic strength to ensure every beer and cider has a place in one of the broad categories, including variations on style such as Sour Beer, Special Hop, and Spanish Style Cider.

International Brewing & Cider Awards director Ruth Evans MBE said: “The International Brewing & Cider Awards first took place in 1886 and throughout this time the integrity, professionalism and judging standards of the awards has been unswerving, and we continue to champion the very best of the international brewing and cidermaking world.

More exciting than ever

“Throughout our history, we have encouraged innovation and diversity within the industry, and our wide range of categories and classes are testament to our ethos of ensuring the best beers and ciders receive the recognition they truly deserve, whether they be large volume or special niche products of excellence.”

In addition, the awards, which will be held in March 2024 in Manchester, will be accompanied by a public festival.

All brewers and cidermakers who enter the awards will be provided an opportunity to exhibit at the International Brewing & Cider Festival.

Evans added: “The 2024 Awards promise to be even more exciting than ever before with the introduction of a public festival, and we’re encouraging all brewers and cidermakers worldwide to enter their products as soon as they can, so they do not miss out on the chance to have their beer and cider recognised as the best in the world.”
