The Brewers Association Export Development Program

The Brewers Association Export Development Program (EDP) is designed to promote US Craft Beers in targeted global markets through trade missions, shows and competitions such as the 2015 European Beer Star competition.

The European Beer Star is one of the most recognized beer competitions in the world, committed to the traditional European art of brewing. The competition evaluates the beers on the basis of purely sensory criteria and is limited to beer categories, which originate in Europe. Fifty-five Brewers Association Export Development Program members sent 233 beers for the 2015 European Beer Star competition. Twenty-three BA EDP members won 34 awards in 26 different categories in the competition. Overall in the European Beer Star competition, there were 1,957 beers entered from 44 countries (41% German, 59% international). This is an increase of 21% more entries compared to the successful prior year.

Judging of the beers was done by an international expert panel at the Doemens Brewing Academy in Gräfelfing near Munich, with 115 beer and brewery experts from all over the globe. Judges were in 14 teams from 27 different countries. Brewers Association Sylvia Kopp, American Craft Beer Ambassador was part of the judging team at the European Beer Star competition.
