Beers Judged As Beer Drinkers Do.

According to CEO Sid Patel of London Beer Competition organiser Beverage Trade Network,

“The craft beer revolution has brought us many different styles, previously either unknown or re-found. Our judges have thoroughly enjoyed looking at and debating the different entrants, looking at beers the way beer drinkers do. Yes, they professionally analyse the quality, but crucially make awards by adding appearance and value for money into the mix.”

The  judging panel consisting of beer industry experts from across commercial buying aspects. Judges ensure that all beers selected as winners are exactly the types of beers that are favoured by both the beer trade and the end consumer. Beers were judged on the basis of three primary criteria – quality, value and packaging. This is then scored on a 100-point scale. Beers that scored 90+ points were awarded Gold medals, 76 to 89 points were awarded Silver medals, whilst Bronze medals are awarded to those that score 65-75 points.
