The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), the group representing mainly smaller brewers, is to move into its first ever head office at the National Brewery Centre (NBC) in Burton-upon-Trent this month. The new office will house SIBA’s chief executive Julian Grocock and a small support team headed by national manager Charlie Gorham. Grocock said: “I can’t think of a better home for the body representing the UK’s craft brewing industry than the National Brewery Centre. “We share the NBC’s ambition to revitalise British beer and bring it to a new generation of drinkers and by sharing a building we believe we will be able to support each other very effectively in fulfilling this aim. This is a perfect partnership.”
