Registration

Registration Processes
  • STEP 1: BREWERY REGISTRATION: - Dec, 2021
  • STEP 2: BEER REGISTRATION: Jan. 2022 - Feb. 2022

A confirmation email will be sent to participants immediately after registration of the brewery and beer. Once all payments have been made, the beer registration process is complete, and participants will receive an email confirming their beer registration with a beer label attachment.

Determining The Proper Category For Your Beer
Each brand may only be entered once. No beer may be entered in multiple categories. Brewing companies entering beers in the 2022 Korea International Beer Award should carefully review the category and subcategory designations before registering a beer. It is imperative that beers are entered into the proper category and subcategory since judges evaluate beers based on these category descriptions. It is the responsibility of each brewing company to enter its beer in the appropriate category and subcategory. The staff of the Korea International Beer Award cannot assist brewing companies in this decision.
