Why Submit To NYIBC?

Reasons to Submit to the New York International Beer Competition

---We are the only International Beer Competition where all the judges are real trade buyers judging the beer by its category and actual price.  Our judges are buyers from the top liquor stores, beer focused bards, distributors and importers from the New York Metropolitan area.

---This is an opportunity for breweries, distributors and importers to place their beers in front of real trade buyers in one of the biggest beer markets in the world.  All of these judges buy and sell beer for a living.

---This is a wonderful opportunity for established breweries to reconnect with their buying audience in a true blind tasting situation.

---This is a perfect opportunity for a new beer to the New York Market and to the United States to be tasted and poured by some of the top beer buyers in New York.  On average over 30% of the beers submitted are new to the area and to the United States looking for distribution.

--Open to all commercially produced beers, meads and ciders produced around the world to be in front of real trade buyers.  Your product does not have to sell in New York or even the United States to be in the competition.

---We are holding the annual beer competition in the Media Capital of the world….New York.  The media is invited to report and observe the competition as well as attend the Press/Trade Winners Circle.  Winning breweries and their representatives are invited to attend at no additional charge.

---We work with our media sponsors to promote the competition as well as the winners.

---We do not charge winning breweries the use of the medal images

---The only additional charges to the winners is the opportunity to purchase stickers promoting their wins.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions about the competition.
