Proud to be an assured, independent and british craft brewery

The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) was established in 1980 to represent the interests of the growing number of independent breweries in Britain, a growth which has continued to this day, with the not-for-profit trade association now representing over 870 independent craft breweries across the UK.

The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) was established in 1980 to represent the interests of the growing number of independent breweries in Britain, a growth which has continued to this day, with the not-for-profit trade association now representing over 870 independent craft breweries across the UK.

There has never been a better time to be a beer drinker in the UK, with more fantastic tasting beer styles being brewed than ever before by a growing number of talented, innovative brewers. However this growth in the independent beer market has not gone unnoticed by the global beer brands, who have begun to buyout previously independent craft breweries, or release their own products marketed as craft.

It's because of this that SIBA launched the 'Assured Independent British Craft Brewer' campaign, to make it easier for beer drinkers to identify beers from truly independent craft brewers.

The Assured Independent British Craft Brewer seal can only be used by a brewery which:

  • Is a brewing member of SIBA and brews quality beer as outlined in SIBA's Handbook.

  • Is a truly independent brewer who is a sole trader, a partnership, a limited company or a public company but is not a subsidiary of a larger firm with attendant or other subsidiary brewing interests.

The SIBA Food Safety and Quality audit is a scheme of improvement providing the necessary food safety and quality assurance demanded by many retailers. Lincoln Green firmly believes that this also gives consumers the confidence that they are drinking beer from one of the very best professional craft breweries in the UK.
