The Meininger’s Inter­na­tio­nal Craft Beer Awards have been assi­gned this year alrea­dy for the sixth time. Mean­ti­me it beca­me one of the big­gest ger­man brewing com­pe­ti­ti­ons. Howe­ver, it dif­fers from the other com­pe­ti­ti­ons in some way.

The beer don’t com­pe­te against each other, but the jury assigns points for appearan­ce, aro­ma, tas­te and over­all impres­si­on. Addi­tio­nal­ly every beer ist asses­sed in 21 sen­so­ric cate­go­ries and the results are pre­sen­ted in a spi­der dia­gram.

The best 30% of each category’s beers get pla­ti­num, gold and sil­ver medals. This way, a mul­ti­tu­de of medals are awar­ded – for instan­ce 197 x gold, 138 x sil­ver und 31 x pla­ti­num in the cur­rent year. Addi­tio­nal­ly the best rated beers get a “best of show” award and the most suc­ces­full bre­we­ry is hono­red, too.
