Author: Lancer Beverage / Published Date: 15 November 2016

Huge congratulations to all of the winners of the 2016 AHA Victoria Awards night.

The AHA Vic State Awards for Excellence is the Victorian hospitality industry’s marquee social and industry recognition event of the year. Over 1000 key industry suppliers, decision makers, AHA corporate partners, industry leaders as well as senior government ministers attended the annual event to support the wide range of hoteliers representing both regional and metropolitan areas.

The gala dinner was held on Monday the 14th of November at Palladium at Crown, and was hosted by Ian Cover and Dave Thornton.

With lots of live music and entertainment, it was a wonderful way to celebrate the incredible work of the hospitality industry staff.  For the second year, Lancer Beer Systems proudly sponsored the award for Best Presented Beer, which was deservingly awarded to the American Hotel Echuca. 

This year also saw the creation of a new category, The People’s Choice Award, where patrons and regular customers voted for their favourite Hotel, Pub, or Restaurant. With over 3000 votes, it was the Criterion Hotel in Sale that took out the title.
