Championship trophies were awarded to nine brewers and one cider maker and over 125 brewers and cider makers from 21 countries were awarded bronze, silver and gold medals.
Bill Taylor, chair of the judging, said: “We judged more than 1,100 beers and ciders in Burton-upon-Trent in March this year.
“It’s a tremendous achievement to come through that process to win firstly a medal and then one of just 10 championship trophies, so everyone on the podium today should feel very proud.”
Championship winners included Frontier, from Fuller Smith and Turner, in the keg lager category and pils unfiltered lager, from Camden Town Brewery, in the smallpack lager category. The international cider awards champion was Cidre Demi-Sec from Zeffer Cider Co, Auckland, New Zealand.
The winners were announced after 45 judges spent three days assessing beers and ciders.
The next International Brewing and Cider Awards will be judged in March 2019, with entries opening in September 2018.
