On October 9th and 10th the Judging Sessions for the European Beer Star 2019 took place at the Doemens Academy in Gräfelfing close to Munich.
145 tasters from 28 countries judged 2,483 beers (41 % German, 59 % international) from 47 different states. The number of beers entered rose by 6 % compared to 2018.
As usual the winners will be announced at the upcoming BrauBeviale in Nuremberg in November.
The European Beer Star addresses breweries around the globe that are committed to the traditional European art of brewing. The award is limited to beer-categories which originate in Europe and hands out awards for authentic, distinctive beers of an impressive taste and quality that fulfill the criteria of the particular type in the best way possible.
The European Beer Star is a project of Private Brauereien Deutschland e.V. and Private Brauereien Bayern e.V.
