With the AIBA judging officially wrapping up at the end of last week, the countdown is now on to the awards presentation in May.
A grand total of 1,480 beers from around the globe were judged by industry heavyweights – including more than 220 Lagers, 140 IPAs, 171 Pale Ales, 87 Pilsners, 95 Wheat Beers and lots more.
Along with changes to the trophies, this year’s AIBA also saw improvements in the use of technology to assist the judging process, including the use of laptops, for immediate results, to determine what brews were judged in the final taste off.
The winners will be announced at the AIBA Presentation Dinner, on Thursday, 23 May 2013 at Peninsula, Docklands. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.rasv.com.au/beer.
