UpFlow Crowned Champion Brewer and Wins Big at the 2022 Independent Beer Awards

We're dedicated to producing Australia's best tasting non-alcoholic beer and our recent wins at the 2022 Independent Beer Awards (The Indies) confirms our beers are the best non-alcoholic beers out there. Not only were we crowned National Champion Contract Brewer award, but every one of our beers picked up a medal, with our Stout earning an impressive Gold medal.

The Indies are a night where independent brewers from around the country come together to celebrate and reward excellence. This year's Indies was the largest ever, with a total of 1458 beers from 207 breweries. To have taken out the Champion Contract Brewer award against both alcoholic and non-alcoholic breweries is a huge achievement that we are extremely proud of. 

Head brewer and founder of Upflow Brewing Co. Julian Sanders, had this to say about our win,  "Although UpFlow has won multiple awards for its beers over the past few years, this recognition by our colleagues - the independent brewers of Australia is the most important to us. The 55 judges are highly experienced and knowledgeable and the consistency of these results - gold or silver medals for every beer that we entered - is a testament to the hard work of our team towards our goal of the best tasting zero alcohol beers on the planet. Thanks very much to the IBA for hosting such an entertaining and well managed event - our team of 8 are super chuffed to be able to contribute to what beer can be in Australia. We have only just started taking beer to new places!"

A big thank you to all of our customers and distributors for your support.
