The World of IBD

When you are starting out in your career or building on your existing experience, nothing is more valuable than contact with other likeminded people.

The IBD delivers a rolling programme of events that are often regionally focused, giving you access to networking and discussion in your own area.

From technical sessions on the latest developments in the industry through to social events and annual dinners, you have the chance to reflect on your practice in the world of brewing and distilling, while forging new contacts and developing higher levels of understanding.

The IBD is organised into geographical sections which organise events tailored to the needs of its members.

Our Early Career’s Network provides invaluable support and development opportunities to people early in their careers.

Many organisations, mindful of the IBDs revered status within the industry, choose to advertise and recruit through us – see current vacancies below.

The IBD has been representing and educating brewers, distillers and fermenters since 1886. Find out how our history has made us into the world leading organisation we are today…. And then help us make the future even brighter!
