The entry deadline for the SIBA Business Awards 2020 has been extended.

The prestigious industry awards are open to entries from breweries, retailers, pubs, bars, restaurants and suppliers, and this year feature a new category for the UK's Best Independent Craft Brewery Taproom. It follows huge growth in the number of breweries opening their doors and serving beer on-site.

The entry deadline has now been extended to Friday, February 14.

The winners are set to be announced at the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) flagship event 'BeerX UK' in Liverpool in March.

Neil Walker, SIBA Business Awards judging chair said: "The SIBA Business Awards seek to acknowledge the most forward-thinking, innovative and successful beer businesses and have evolved year-on-year to include categories which best match with the direction of the independent craft brewing industry – one of the most exciting sectors in the UK.

"The quality and quantity of entries has gone from strength to strength in recent years so if you believe your business is the best in the UK at what you do then I would urge you to take a look at this year's awards, they're set to be the best ever."

The SIBA Business Awards are unique in being both free to enter and judged by a panel of independent industry experts, managed by not-for-proft trade association the Society of Independent Brewers.
