Beer Competition with a tradition and strict rules

Beer competitions have been held in Burton/England since 1886. The competition is now knows as "The Brewing Industry International Awards". Tradition and experience have given this competition a special quality, transforming it from a national event into an international competition, attended by entrants from 40 countries.

This year’s Millennium Competitions have seen international participation rise further. This has been especially highlighted by beers packaged in bottles and cans. In the packaged beer category, the lager group had an international share of 87%, speciality beers represented the second strongest international participation, with a foreign share of 68%, followed by strong beers, with an international share of 51% (see Fig. 1).K. were tasted (see Fig. 2).
