Melbourne Royal announced the trophy winners for the 2022 Australian International Beer Awards last night at the sell-out presentation dinner in the spectacular Victoria Pavilion at Melbourne Showgrounds, with more than 900 guests from the beer and brewing industry. 

As the who’s who of the beer industry gathered to celebrate the best beers in the world, the impressive Victoria Pavilion came to life – the perfect venue for a grand celebration like this.  

The team of passionate event planners at Melbourne Royal curated an evening that included the pomp and ceremony of an awards night, great fun entertainment, a three-course meal matched perfectly with award-winning beers, and plenty of room for networking and catching up with industry colleagues. 

The impressive venue provides flexibility and versatility to design large industry events and has unrivalled audio-visual capability that brought the awards to life for the full house of guests as winners were announced. 

Western Australia’s Beerland Brewing was awarded the prestigious title of Champion Australian Beer for their Beerland Blueberry Clouds.

Presented by Danielle Green MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria, Champion Victorian Brewery was awarded to Reservoir’s Hawkers Beer, who also snapped up Champion Large Australian Brewery.
