Fellow Membership

Obtain the highest level of recognition as an IBD member.

Fellow Membership

The Institute of Brewing & Distilling recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the profession and the industry.

Who is the IBD Fellowship for?

The IBD thrives recognising talent, passion and dedication to the drinks industry. We believe it’s important to celebrate those who have committed their careers to create high-quality products consistently and also give back to the industry, encouraging others to succeed too.

Becoming a Fellow of the IBD grants the status that these professionals deserve from the drinks industry membership organisation that provides the gold standard in technical qualifications most recognised in the world.

You'll need to:

Every Fellowship candidate requires a nomination by the nominee’s IBD Section Chairperson along with recommendations from an additional two IBD Fellows, not necessarily from the same Section, but known to the Nominee.

Honorary Fellowship

For these professionals who have assisted the IBD in achieving its charitable objectives with commitment and dedication to giving back to the industry.
