ALDI is celebrating its wins from last month’s Melbourne Royal Australian International Beer Awards, the largest annual beer competition in the world assessing both draught and packaged beer. This year saw 65 judges taste 2,630 entries from 355 exhibitors, from 20 countries.

ALDI’s Buying Director for Beer, Cider, Spirits & RTDs Paul Handley said: “We’re absolutely chuffed at our results in this year’s AIBA awards. We’ve always known our beer range is of the highest quality and it’s an honour that the best and brightest in beer judging agree. This recognition is a testament to the incredible work of our supplier partners, keeping our beer range diverse, affordable and delicious for our shoppers.”

Thirty five trophies were handed out on the night and nine medals went to ALDI Australia’s beer range.  

Brad Jenkins Melbourne Royal CEO said, “We have had an extraordinary response to the 2022 Melbourne Royal Australian International Beer Awards from the beer and brewing industry. We received a record number of entries this year, despite the ongoing global challenges and the natural disasters that occurred across north-east Australia. This is a testament to the value and importance the beer and brewing industry places on winning a trophy or medal in these world-class awards. “
