All World Beer Cup entries must be commercially available, fermented malt beverages conforming to the trade understanding of “beer” (see “Beer Eligibility Criteria” section below) brewed by a permitted commercial brewery.
“Commercially available” means available for sale at retail at the time of registration. Entering United States breweries must have a current Brewer’s Notice on file with the U.S. Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).
A non-refundable fee of $180 is due during the brewery registration process (Oct. 26–Nov. 10, 2021). This fee also will cover your brewery’s first beer entry into the competition.
After the initial $180 application fee, the cost to participate is $180 per additional beer brand entered into the competition.
REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY: No refunds will be issued after Feb. 25, 2022 for cancelled entries or beers that are not sent in for competition. The World Beer Cup does not offer credits for future competitions.
