The jury is made up of independent international experts who will perform tastings of the beers in two steps:
Step 1: a face to face tasting at the brewer’s stand, selecting those beers that will proceed to the final.
Step 2: the final beers will be tasted and evaluated blind and anonymously. After an in-depth sensory analysis, the beers will receive a score.
The organization reserves the right to specify the categories and to remove or add categories.
