Winners for the AIBA 2020 Isolation Edition have been announced at tonight's special virtual brewers choice awards night.
Hosted by AIBA Judge Kirrily Waldhorn and Good Beer Week's Co-Founder Miro Bellini, the awards celebrated the Australian beer industry in isolation, as part of the Good Beer Week Virtual Festival.
With almost 150 votes in from our AIBA exhibitors, we're lucky to have had so many great breweries be awarded trophies for their champion beers and many of them remain favourites for the industry and the consumer.
