The BBPA’s Annual Dinner and Awards ceremony, a must-attend event for brewers and the on-trade, takes place on Wednesday 12th October, and once again returns to the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.

The BBPA Industry Awards will have a fresh look and feel for 2016, with four categories as follows:

The Off-trade Retailer Award 2016

This award seeks to reward a company which has shown exceptional support to the beer industry throughout its estate.

Beer Champion 2016

The BBPA Beer Champion Award of 2016 looks to recognise companies that have successfully sought to promote, improve and celebrate beer.

Pub Champion 2016 in association with Nestlé Professional

The title of Pub Champion 2016 will recognise companies that have worked to secure pubs for future generations. This year the Pub Champion Award is supported by Nestlé Professional and their expertise in food and beverage solutions.

BBPA Heart of the Community Award

The winner of this award will have demonstrated a commitment to their local community.

The BBPA Industry Awards are free to enter, and will be awarded as a result of an application process followed by a decision from a panel of expert judges.

For more information on each of the four Award categories, entrants can visit the new, dedicated awards website. The deadline for entries is 26th August.

Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive, BBPA, comments:

“The BBPA Annual Dinner and Awards 2016 will see us continue our successful partnership with Pub & Bar magazine that delivered such a great night last year.

“The awards recognise the valuable contribution the brewing and pub sector makes across our economy and society. I’m looking forward to seeing the entries we receive this year.”
