The Drinks Retailing Awards 2016
The Drinks Retailing Awards are among the trade's biggest highlights, bringing together the leading lights in retail. Not only is our judging process one of the most rigorous and thorough of all the industry awards, but we are also unique in covering the entire breadth of the take-home market, striving to reflect excellence in as many areas of the trade as possible.
Every year, we look to honour retailers who have delivered excellent service, range and value, to create successful and profitable operations.
For our winning retailers, taking home a Drinks Retailing Award represents the ultimate accolade for their business and is a huge achievement. All retailers who make it to the final round are invited to attend the awards as our guest. The awards are presented at a glittering ceremony on the evening of February 2, 2016 at one of London's most prestigious venues, The Dorchester Hotel.
Our winners say:
"We are really delighted to retain the ‘Independent Beer Retailer of the Year' Award. Being recognised by the industry for a second year in a row is a real achievement for everyone involved in Real Ale. We have to thank all of our loyal customers who have constantly supported us, as well as all of the innovative craft breweries who we are proud to support and who are continuously striving to make even better beer. I am extremely proud of our dedicated team who constantly strive to develop our business, and have continued to maintain excellence"
