Determining The Proper Category For Your Beer

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 2024 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.
