2012 Brussels Beer Challenge Competition
The Brussels Beer Challenge aims to promote the beer industry in a market that is not only a benchmark for beer but also home to connoisseurs. The event dovetails with “Brussels, 2012 gourmet food capital” which provides the ideal setting for promoting products from the global beer industry. For more information, please visit: http://www.brusselsbeerchallenge.com/
The Brussels Beer Challenge competition judging takes place in early November and awards will be announced on November 4th 2012 at an award ceremony in Brussels. The Brewers Association Export Development Program will present these awards to brewery representatives at its own ceremony at the 2013 Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, DC.
For beers being entered into the Brussels Beer Challenge Competition, the BA will cover the entry cost and shipping, including customs charges from the Brewers Association to Belgium for up to three brands (bottles and cans only) per brewery for Export Development Program members – you are responsible for sending these beers to the BA warehouse. Breweries can submit more than three brands but will be asked to remit payment for the number of brands submitted beyond three.

1 case of bottles or cans of each brand is needed for the European Beer Star competition.
Container Size & Quantity Needed:
