The International Brewing & Cider Awards

The world’s most historic international beer and cider competition, The International Brewing & Cider Awards, has announced the expansion of its prestigious awards into Manchester, UK, and the launch of a beer and cider festival

For the first time in its 137-year history, the Awards will be accompanied by a public festival – The International Brewing & Cider Festival, which will be a two-day ticketed event for the public, showcasing the range of beers and ciders entered into the competition from around the world, together with local manufacturers.

The biennial competition, known as the ‘Oscars’ of the brewing and cider world, will take place in March 2024 at Depot Mayfield Manchester, which will see industry professionals gather to celebrate the extraordinary and well-crafted beers and ciders from all corners of the world.

The Festival will take place following the end of the competition, on Friday 22nd March and Saturday 23rd March, offering for the first time a rare opportunity for attendees to taste such a wide range of local, national and international products, including award-winning beer and cider from the Awards.

Tickets to the International Brewing & Cider Festival will be available for purchase from November on the official festival website
