The moving celebration of independent craft beer that is The Indies (the new name for the Craft Beer Awards) heads to Sydney for 2018.
Awards will be handed out for the best beers and brewing companies at Paddington Town Hall as The Indies close out BrewCon 2018 on June 28.
One of the highlights of the year for the Independent Brewers Association, The Indies are judged by a respected panel of local and international beer judges. They are intended as a platform to raise consumer awareness of independent beer as well as showcasing and celebrating excellence in beer.
Last year's big winners included Dainton (Champion Australian Craft Beer), 4 Pines, Fixation and The Wheaty Brewing Corps, who took out the Champion Brewery titles.
