Dear brewers, dear beer lovers,

2020, the European Beer Star was once again the most important beer competition for the whole world. Against all expectations, we had received 2,036 entries from 42 countries this year. 
An enormous challenge for our jury. Because – due to the circumstances – it consisted of significantly fewer experts than in previous years.
A sophisticated hygiene concept protected tasters and helpers in the best possible way.Each of the ten teams had its own room, which was regularly aired. In addition, the size of the group was limited to a maximum of eight people and a minimum distance of two meters was specified. The protective masks could only be taken off at the tasting table.

The great work of the European Beer Star team

consisting of the ladies and gentlemen of the association’s office – led by Kilian Kittl, as well as the team of the Doemens Academy, made it possible at all that we could hold the competition again this year. 
Have fun with reading!

Since 2004, the beery highlight of every autumn has been the European Beer Star. Over the years it has matured into the world’s foremost annual beer competition. Many individual factors play an important role. Much more than you can expect in the “hot” phases in October (expert tasting) and November (consumers favourite, award ceremony and winners night). This fact inspired us to launch our magazine. The BEER STAR NEWS will now provide an insight into the competition twice a year. Our recommendation: A good sip, preferably of a beer that has received an European Beer Star award, will complete your enjoyment of the following pages. Cheers!

We keep you up to date
