Nothing can replace the experience of face-to-face interactions. We look forward to the workshop and interaction with the brewers, their questions and the exchange of information.” – Sylvie Van Zandycke, Director of Sales & Marketing, Lallemand Brewing.

Also, hats off to the organisers for conducting something after all the challenging times and it would be nice to meet all the industry friends and peers at this expo. The fact that this is only specific to the beer and brewing industry makes it more exciting.”
Echoing a similar opinion, Anand Nayak, Director of Strategic Business Marketing at Endress + Hauser said “At Brewer World Conclave, we are excited to showcase our innovative products for the brewing industry and we also look forward to meeting you everyone at the Conclave for fruitful interactions.”

The Beer of India Awards
The Beer of India awards aims to award excellence in the Indian brewing industry. A first-of-its-kind awards show in India, conducted by Brewer World, is solely dedicated to the Beer and Brewing Community. The mission of the awards ceremony is to recognise the excellence in beers across India with a blind tasting judging process. It is going to be one of the most premier Beer judging competitions for the industry in India.
The judging panel consisted of BJCP Judges, Certified Cicerones and sensory experts. The judging process was concluded in the first week of May 2022 and the winners would be announced during the Conclave Awards ceremony which will take place on the 27th of May, 6 PM onwards.
Elated about his experience with ‘The Beer of India Awards’ event, Sameer Patwardhan, who is a BJCP Judge, Head Brewer and Co-founder of Kimaya Brewing Co. says “Having a standardised competition with both macro and micro breweries was a game changer and it was very much needed especially because it brought everyone under one roof with the beers only being judged under the standardised rules of appearance, aroma, flavour, mouthfeel and overall adherence to style.” He added that as part of the judging panel, one of his favourite memories were the spirited debates among the judges over the beers. He underestimated the diverse ingredients that breweries across India are using for their beers and judging them with his peers was a great experience.
“Brewer World has tirelessly curated a platform such as Conclave 2022 for the Indian beer industry and all its stakeholders to discover possibilities which lie within the worldwide beer market. It also presents the opportunity to interact with all of the world’s leading brands and make them succeed internationally. It is an event which gives the beer its due recognition.” says Anitha Raghunath, Co-founder & Managing Director, Brewer World.
