Raise The Bar – A national competition for new breweries

New for 2018 and a first for the industry, We Are Beer (that’s us!) are launching ‘Raise the Bar’ – which seeks to find new, up-coming brewers and shine a light on creativity and innovation. In a bid to champion new talent, our expert panel will independently blind taste all submissions. They will then select the top four brewers to attend all three We Are Beer festivals – London, Edinburgh and Bristol – providing them with a platform to showcase their beer to 17,000 people across the UK this year.

The Raise the Bar panel includes: Jenn Merrick, former Beavertown head brewer and founder of a new community based brewery, Earth Station, Ben Freeman, co-founder and brewer at Pressure Drop, Jonny Garrett from Craft Beer Channel, and alongside ourselves.

Potential brewers (under 2 years in commercial production) are asked to enter online at before submitting some samples of their beer for panel review. Entry deadline for Raise the Bar is 13th March 2018.

Good luck and keep up the good work.
