Who are we?

The Beer Awards is a new beer competition run by the world’s leading experts in drinks competitions, The IWSC Group.

Launched in 2016, The Beer Awards aim is to highlight exceptional beers using The IWSC's rigorous judging method in order to make consumer drinking choices that little bit easier. 

With over 47 years' experience in judging quality in alcoholic beverages, IWSC Group's team of judges is headed by Simon Jackson (former CEO of The Institue of Brewing & Distilling) who will be chairing the judging panel and leading the charge of high calibre judges from across the world including brewers, beer sommeliers and beer writers to assist in finding the world's best beers. 

With the explosion of new breweries opening their doors all around the world, The Beer Awards medals will act as a credible point of difference on a crowded shelf and influence purchasing decisions both on and off trade.

Competition winners will be provided with a marketing toolkit to allow them to be able to display artwork of their success on packs or point of sale. The winning products will be supported with a year round marketing and PR campaign.
