Melbourne International Beer Competition Announces 2019 Winners

Thank you to all the brands who came out to compete this year!

The Melbourne International Beer Competition

The 2019 Melbourne International Beer Competition was held at the RACV City Club in the heart of Melbourne. This year’s judging panel included buyers from top retail stores, sommeliers, distributors, and importers from Australia and the greater Asia Pacific Region. As with all of our competitions, we only select trade buyers to be our judges, ensuring that the brands submitted are tasted by the true decision-makers of the beverage industry. The judges were thrilled by the high quality of known beers submitted as well as the large number of new breweries looking to break into the Asia Pacific Market. The next Melbourne International Beer Competition will be held in June of 2020.
