The European Beer Star, organized by the Bavarian Private Brewers Association, took place for the 19th occasion in August and is committed to the traditional European art of brewing. It recognizes high-quality, authentic beers that are genuine and distinctive, and is limited to beer categories that originate in Europe.

The Brewers Association (BA) Export Development Program (EDP) views international competitions as a key mechanism by which to generate publicity for the U.S. craft beer industry and assist EDP subscribers with gaining attention and distribution for their brands in select target markets. As such, the BA covers the cost of a consolidated airfreight shipment to judging sites and covers the entry fee for up to three brands per brewery in select international competitions for its member breweries.

This 2022 competition attracted 2,168 beers from 40 countries judged by 140 beer experts, including Lotte Peplow, American Craft Beer Ambassador to Europe. It took place at the Doemens Brewing Academy in Gräfelfing, near Munich, and judges awarded 213 beers with gold, silver, or bronze in 71 categories. Congratulations to the EDP member breweries who won 25 medals in total including eight gold, eight silver, and nine bronze.
