European Beer Star Award 2013

The European Beer Star Award took place for the tenth time in 2013, focusing again on breweries from all around the world that demonstrated a commitmennt to the traditional European way of brewing.

In a total of 51 categories, 1,512 beers (44% German, 56% international) were exposed to the rigours of one of the toughtest competitions in the world. The awards were reserved for special beers which were assessed purely in accordance with sensory criteria and whose quality led them to stand out from the others in their category. Given the fierce competition, the Bronze Award for the wheatbeer Bock Vitus in the “South German-sytle Light-coloured Weizenbock” category was a great honour for the State Brewery.
