“Here’s a puzzler: in the ever-expanding world of brewing competitions, is there a maximum number of entries that can be judged? How big can big be? The answer comes courtesy of America’s Brewers Association, which is envisioning a ceiling of 5,000 entries for the next edition of the World Beer Cup in 2014. And to encourage as many entrants as possible, initially there will be a restriction on the number of beers that can be entered. “Demand for participation in the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup has always been high,” said Brewers Association sales and marketing director Barbara Fusco. “But this year seemed to be a critical mass where interest was very high and there was a rush to enter all at once.” As such there’s a new two-stage entry process in place. The two stage process, she added, will allow for a level playing field, that brewers from around the world will have an equal opportunity to participate in the World Beer Cup. As the name suggests it is intended to be a global stage for brewing in contrast to the BA’s Great American Beer Festival.  

Step 1: Brewery Registration: October 17 – October 30, 2013

If you plan to enter the 2014 World Beer Cup, it is strongly recommended that you register before October 30th.   

Step 2: Beer Registration: November 6 – November 19, 2013

Registered brewers will receive an email with instructions on how many beers they may enter.  Breweries will enter their beers online and select appropriate categories in which their beers will compete.

“An increase in entries is expected this year.  Awards from the WBC have proven to be a marketing and sales boost for winning breweries and give lasting recognition to the brewers themselves.  We look forward to receiving your entries.”   

Mark Snyder, Brewers Association
