The ICBI is the official representative trade body for independently operated microbreweries in Ireland.

The organisation is run by brewers, with the chief aim of the promotion of Independent Irish beer and brewing.
We act on behalf of our members on matters of policy and legislation as well as the overall development of the sector.

Message from Chairperson

"I am honoured to have been elected as chairperson for 2017/2018. I, like our other members recognise the need for the independently owned microbrewing sector to come together with a single voice on issues relevant to our quite unique and still emerging industry.
The sector has experienced phenomenal growth in the last decade, though industry pressures mean that it is crucial for us all to jointly promote independent Irish beer and to continue to educate and instill passion in our customers.
The aim of the ICBI is to ensure that our community of artisanal producers, sharing a common ethos to create great beers, can work together to promote the microbrewing sector as a whole. To forge industry and stakeholder relationships and to use tools such as our Independent Irish Craft Beer Symbol and our annual Indie Beer Week to communicate directly with consumers.
We are proud to be an organisation run by independent brewers for independent brewers."

Kevin O'Hara (Independent Brewing Company, Connemara) December 2017
