Announcing the Top 100 award winners

Enjoy exploring the Top 100 beers and ciders from the 2020 New World Beer & Cider Awards

The New World Beer & Cider Awards bring you great beer and cider from New Zealand and overseas. 600 different beers and ciders from more than 100 breweries and cideries were entered into the competition. The entries were judged by an independent panel of experts who blind-tasted and evaluated each entry. All beers and ciders entered into the competition must be packaged in a bottle or can and are required to have a minimum amount of stock for thirsty customers, but they don’t have to be stocked in New World stores to be entered into the competition.

The Top 30 beers and ciders are available in all liquor-selling New World stores nationwide until 28 June 2020, or while stocks last. As many are brewed in small batches by independent breweries, supplies may be limited – so our advice is to buy them when you see them!

The 70 Highly Commended have varied availability – some are widely available, some are only available in selected New World stores and some are seasonal releases. Again these are all fantastic brews so if you see them, snap them up! 

The Top 100 list of award winning beers and ciders can be downloaded, or you can search by style using the filters below.

And remember to rate your favourites on Untappd!
