ALIA 2018 had a Hallowe’en theme

By Andy Young, The Shout

The countdown to the 2019 Australian Liquor Industry Awards (ALIA) is on, with several beer-related finalists being revealed.

After the voting closed, the votes have been tallied to reveal the finalists in the on-premise categories. These finalists will now go to ALIA’s extensive panel of judges from all sectors of Australia’s liquor industry. Full details on the voting and judging process are available on the ALIA website.

The judges will now vote for the top three in each of the categories, to ascertain the ALIA winners. These votes will then be audited by PKF, with the winners revealed at this year’s awards, taking place at The Star on Wednesday, 23 October. Make sure you are part of this year’s ALIA celebrations, and book your ticket.
