Fourpure and Magic Rock reinstated as SIBA members

The brewing group, In Good Company Limited, has announced its craft beer brands Magic Rock and Fourpure have been reinstated as SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) members. Following the new independent ownership of the breweries, this is the first time in SIBA history that a brewery has been given back its membership.

After the sale of Fourpure and Magic Rock to Odyssey Inns Ltd in 2022, the breweries are now part of a new independent brewing group: In Good Company Limited allowing it to be reinstated to SIBA. With the ability to offer a selection of exciting craft beers from a single supplier, In Good Company provides the hospitality sector with an easy way to serve up a range of craft beers.

Steve Cox, Chief Executive Officer at In Good Company said: “As independent breweries, Magic Rock and Fourpure value the support that SIBA provides. We believe that it’s important for them to be reinstated as members of SIBA, as it allows us to connect with like-minded brewers and access valuable resources. We’re continuing to look at ways of how contribute to the vibrant craft beer community and it’s a step in the right direction to do it as a SIBA member.”

The Chief Executive of SIBA, Andy Slee said: “SIBA are delighted to welcome back former members Fourpure and Magic Rock, who under their new ownership are now once again eligible for membership and for entry into SIBA competitions. I want to wish them both a warm welcome back to the fold, and to congratulate Magic Rock who picked up two Gold awards at their inaugural SIBA North East Independent Beer Awards last week.”

Following its recent reinstatement, along with winning two Gold Awards at the SIBA North East Independent Beer Awards, the Yorkshire-based brewery, Magic Rock, also won Silver in the Overall Champion of the Cask Competition for its Ringmaster Pale Ale.

Established in 1980, SIBA is a membership-based organisation that represents around 750 independent craft breweries. Its vision is to promote and deliver the future of British beer as the voice of British Independent Brewing.
