The range of varieties in European beer styles is represented in 60 different categories. An international expert jury evaluates the beers submitted during a 2-day blind tasting.
The key test criterion here is the sensory experience. However, in addition to beer quality, meeting the requirements of the category description is key. The European Beer Star is solely concerned with special, authentic beers. The three best beers in each category are awarded a gold, silver and bronze medal.
The expert tasting session took place on 10. and 11. August 2017 at the Doemens Academy in Gräfelfing, Germany.
The dates for the competition in the next year are already fixed. The tasting of the European Beer Star 2018 will take place on 11th and 12th October 2018
