With Larry Emdur taking to the stage for the sixth time to emcee the evening, 50 awards were presented across the on and off-premise, including nine specialist beer and cider awards.
The stand-out performer of the night was again Coopers who snagged Best Full Strength for Coopers Pale Ale, Best Marketed Beer or Cider Brand, and the, much coveted major trophy, Liquor Brand of the Year.
James Squire also cleaned up on the night with One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale nabbing both the Premium Domestic and the Craft Beer category awards.
