The New York International Beer Competition was thrilled with the quality of beer submissions that it received in its first year. We were proud to showcase our 100+ beer submissions from over 16 countries.

“I’m honored that Samuel Adams has been recognized by the New York International Beer Competition. We are proud to stand beside so many great craft beer colleagues, especially in New York, a city with so many knowledgeable people who know beer, sell beer, and drink craft beer. ” says Jim Koch, Founder & Brewer of Samuel Adams/Boston Beer Co..

Giuseppe Collesi of Italy’s Collesi Brewery, which won the 2012 International Brewery of the Year Award from NYIBC, agrees: “I’m honored and thrilled to receive the 2012 International Brewery of the Year from NYIBC. This prestigious NYIBC award comes at a time when we are trying hard to get our beers distributed in the US and I believe it will substantially help to speed up the brand recognition and awareness among the discerning US beer consumer.”
