About SIBA

Introduction to SIBA

SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers and Associates, was established in 1980 to represent the interests of the growing number of independent breweries in Britain.

SIBA currently represents over one thousand independent craft breweries, supplier companies and associate members such as Homebrewers and International Brewing Members.

SIBA are the Big Voice of indpendent beer – As well promoting independent brewing and lobbying government on behalf of brewers, SIBA also run regional and national independent beer awards for cask, keg, bottled and canned beers, host regional meetings for the benefit of members as well as the UK’s biggest beer & brewing trade event BeerX UK in Liverpool.

Assured Independent British Craft Brewers 

The ‘Assured Independent British Craft Brewer‘ initiative is run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), who ensure that any beers which carry the Independent Craft Brewer logo are relatively small, independent and brewing quality beer.

The logo is used on pumpclips, beer bottles, can labels, and at many beer festivals across the UK, and wherever it appears the beer will have been made by a truly independent craft brewery.

A new consumer logo is due for launch in June 2024, contact press@siba.co.uk for more info.
