At the recent Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) Western Australia’s Gage Roads Brewing Company’s Little Dove (draught) was awarded Champion Australian Beer. 

Conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the AIBA is the world’s largest annual beer competition judging both packaged and draught beer. 

Other major Australian trophies awarded included Champion Large Australian Brewer to Stone & Wood Brewing, Champion Medium Australian Brewer to Two Birds Brewing in Victoria, Champion Small Australian Brewer to Pirate Life Brewing in South Australia and the Australian Gypsy Brewer Award to BrewCult in Victoria.

Stone and Wood’s co-founder Jamie Cook told The Echo, ‘We are absolutely stoked to be an independent brewery that’s doing so well on the national scene. Many of the large breweries have been bought out by the multinationals and for us to win this award is incredible. This is something that the northern rivers community can take pride in, as they’ve helped us to get to where we are today; we wouldn’t have been able to have achieved this win without their support.’
