Weyermann® Go for Gold: Meininger´s International Craft Beer Award 2019

A total of 1,229 beers from 31 countries will compete for a prize at the sixth Meininger’s International Craft Beer Award.

Entries were submitted by 250 breweries this year. The flavourful range comprises 74 categories, ranging from barrel-aged beers, IPAs, pale ales and wheat beers to freestyle or experimental-style beers, Helles, Pils, Kellerbiers and export beers:

An expert jury consisting of brewers and beer sommeliers as well as research and teaching experts will taste and evaluate the beers over two days. This year our Weyermann® brewmaster Constantin Förtner has been invited to prove his expertise as beer-judge.

Using the international 100-point scale, the beers are not measured against each other, but are instead judged individually on their appearance, aroma, taste and drinking experience by a six- or seven-strong judging panel. Furthermore, the Award also includes a sensory description of the aromas and attributes typical of each beer style.

We wish Constantin Förtner two great days and all participants, especially our Weyermann® customers, best of luck!
