What Has SIBA Ever Done For Us…?

With James Calder, Head of Public Affairs and Comms

Season 1


Episode 22

SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers, was established in 1980 to represent the interests of the growing number of breweries in Britain, and currently represents around 830 independent craft breweries in the UK.

Regardless of your own thoughts on SIBA, there’s no denying their active role in lobbying government helped bring about Small Breweries’ Relief, which has played a pivotal role in the new wave of independent breweries launch since the turn of the Millennium.

Plus, they hold the 2nd largest industry trade show in Europe with a national beer competition – a well attended event and highlight in many brewer’s calendar.

In this week’s episode, we catch up with Head of Public Affairs and Communications, James Calder, to throw some challenging questions in his direction about the role of SIBA for independent brewers, and talk about Peanut Butter Snickers Stouts!
