1st Annual Berlin International Beer Competition Is Set For March 5th, 2017

We’re excited to announce that the inaugural Berlin International Beer Competition (BIBC) will be held on March 5, 2017 at the Kempinski Hotel in the heart of Berlin. The competition will be held in conjunction with the Berlin International Spirits Competition and the Berlin International Wine Competition.

The BIBC will follow the same format as the rest of the International Beverage Competitions series, including the upcoming 6th Annual New York International Beer Competition. All the judges will be real trade buyers including bar and restaurant owners, retail store buyers, distributors, and importers. The judges will judge the beer, cider and sake in a blind taste test by their category and retail price – as if they were buying it for their business.

The competition is open to all commercially produced beer, cider and sake available anywhere in the world. Your liquid does not have to be currently sold in Berlin – just commercially produced.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions, and we look forward to seeing you in March!
