On May 3, 2018 the competition marked the final days of this year’s Craft Brewer’s Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Held every two years, 2018’s awards saw over 8000 entries representing 66 countries, a 25% increase over 2016’s competition.
Judging of the competition occurred over three days and incorporated a panel of 295 judges from 33 countries, including 11 judges from Canada, our largest contingent to date!
After the dust settled, the United States had the most award-winning beers at 242, with Canada finishing second with 14, and Germany coming third with nine award-winners. Special recognition goes to Belgium, which had the highest winning percentage; 10 percent of all their entries took home a medal.
Congratulations to all the winners!
