May 1-2, 2012 WorldBeerCup.org Every two years a highly qualified professional panel of beer judges honors the top three beers in 90 beer style categories with gold, silver and bronze awards. The World Beer Cup is often referred to as "the Olympics of Beer Competitions" because it is one of the very few international beer competitions awarding only one gold, silver and bronze in each category.
“Brewers all over the world participate in order to win recognition for their creativity and brewing ability,” said Charlie Papazian, President of the Brewers Association, the US-based trade association that has put on the competition every two years since 1996. “For a brewer, a World Beer Cup gold award allows them to say that their winning beer represents the best of that beer style in the world.”
