After 2 years of consecutive success, the 3rd edition of the London Beer Competition brings the best deals for beer brands. This international competition, due to its unique approach to judging, has been recognized as a unique and ideal competition among all the other beer judging events from across the globe.

All global beer competitions have been organized in the same way for years, by beers being blind-tasted and judged by experts. The London Beer Competition has taken a step ahead and brought a different approach to judging. Apart from quality, the London Beer Competition also judges all beers, based on their packaging and value for money. To be more precise, the London Beer Competition judges in the way a consumer would, when picking a beer to drink.

The average customer always looks at the price first. Then they look at the label and pick out the beer bottles with designs and stories that appeal to them. So, these two things come before a producer even gets a chance to show how well their beer tastes.

Putting this into place, the London Beer Competition judges beers based on three main parameters:

Quality

We celebrate the beers that are both enjoyable and easy to drink, beers that are well-balanced where alcohol levels all work seamlessly together.

Packaging

What a beer brand looks like is how every consumer chooses their beer. Up to 70% of consumers would choose a new beer just because it looks good. So, well-designed packaging is a must-to-consider factor.

Value

To be a good beer, it is not necessary to have a higher or cheaper price. What affects most is the value for money it holds.
