Honorary membership is awarded to a person distinguished in any of the technical, organisational or productive aspects of brewing who has been of material assistance to the Brewers Guild of New Zealand.

The awards of Honorary Fellow and Honorary Member may be made to individuals who have worked for, or owned, a Brewers Guild member organisation. However, the individuals no longer need to be working within the Brewing Industry and/or their company does not need to be a member at the time of the Award.

Industry Achievement Award
This is awarded to a person who has gained recognition for outstanding achievement in a field allied to the brewing industry. This Honour is distinct from other Industry Awards at the New Zealand Beer Awards because it awards individuals rather than organisational achievements.

To be considered for an Industry Achievement Award, the person must have been active in the brewing industry for at least five years.

During this time, the person will have demonstrated a commitment to supporting the interests of brewers and actively going above and beyond in their conduct and service to make the day-to-day activities for brewers easier.

More than focusing on ‘just doing their job’ this award recognised excellence in customer service, positivity in attitude and a commitment to collaboration.

The selection of Honours Awards recipients will be made by an Honours Committee comprising of an Honorary Fellow and two members of the Brewers Guild of New Zealand Board.

Nominations close Tuesday 12th July at 5pm. To submit a nomination, click here.
