2024 Honey Beer Competition

Judging

The 2024 Honey Beer Competition will take place in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, August 10. Judging will be closed to the public. Online registration ends Friday, July 19.

The Honey Beer Competition medals will be awarded on a merit basis by a majority vote. Judges are asked to evaluate the beers in silence until everyone on the panel has finished their evaluation. A moderator records the judges’ votes.

Beers are presented to judges in a blind tasting format. Judging is absolutely anonymous; no beer bottles are visible to the judges at any time until the competition is over. No judge may evaluate a product in which he/she has a stake or ownership. Judging is not based on personal preference, but by product adherence to the guidelines as set by the Beer Judge Certification Program.

The judges’ decision is final and awards will not be changed after the judging is finished.

All entries will receive BJCP judges notes and all winners will receive a physical medal and a digital seal for use on packaging and promotional materials.

All entries will be judged for the design and packaging awards. There is no additional registration required.
