COVID-19 Update

March 18th, 2020

Dear Entrants,

In response to the global COVID–19 outbreak, the International Beer Challenge team has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that we successfully deliver the competition in the best way possible for our entrants this year.

As ever, we will strive to offer you the best service and helpful support during this challenging period.

• Our entry deadline and shipping deadline will remain the same for the time being. However, we will continue to review this with regards to the ongoing COVID-19 global situation.

• We will work with entrants with regards to sending their sample shipments to meet our delivery deadlines and ask entrants to keep us updated with delivery information via

The blind tasting assessment day is currently scheduled for mid-September and we are hopeful that we will be able to proceed as planned. We will continue to monitor and act on advice from the UK government and the World Health Organisation, regarding precautions on COVID-19. Following this advice, we will implement appropriate health and safety precautions to ensure our commitments to the safety of attendees and staff at this event are met. The International Beer Challenge has the safety and wellbeing of our judges and staff members as our absolute priority.

Finally, … We will continue to provide regular updates throughout the forthcoming weeks. We would like to wish all our entrants all the very best during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please to do not hesitate to get in touch with us at

Best wishes,

The International Beer Challenge team
