Denver International
Beer Competition 2016
The Denver International Beer Competition is the premier International Beer competition in the Rockies.

Welcome to the Official Website of The Denver International Beer Competition!

The 7th Annual Denver International Beer Competition, was held on April 2 & 3, 2016 at the Omni Interlocken Resort, Broomfield, Colorado.

Our judging panel consists of 20 to 30 seasoned BJCP certified professional beer judges. Judges score all beers based on points, providing the fairest method for recognizing bonafide award winners.

Unlike other competitions that base awards on 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, we recognize winners on their individual merits.
