Announcing - International Beer Awards 2021

It is with Pleasure that the North American Brewers Association can announce the return of the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest in 2021 along with its associated International Beer Awards in Idaho Falls. The Beer Fest will return to Sandy Downs on August 28, 2021 as the premiere event capping Idaho Beer Week. The competition will resume with judging of commercial beer entries between August 24 through August 27.

The 2021 dates for Idaho Beer Week are August 22 through August 28th; International Beer Awards ceremony will take place August 27th and of course the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest at Sandy Downs will be on Saturday August 28th. Information will be posted on our website as plans are set and you’ll also receive the usual electronic and paper notifications. NOTE: When entering beers in the competition you are encouraged to use electronic entry and payment on our secure website.

We’ll also continue to offer brewers a FREE means to promote your beer and brewery. We’ll have a section of our website for breweries to post promotional videos. We’d suggest an approximately 5 minute long video that shows the outside of your brewery, the tasting room (as applicable) the brewery (kettle and tun, tanks, canning\bottling line, filter, etc.) and perhaps your flagship beer(s). Please send a copy of your brewery logo as well.

In another area we’re opening our beer reviews, which are posted on our website and facebook page to beers you may wish to promote. To take advantage of this offer please ship us two of your selected beer(s) along with a short description or designated style type, and a jpeg image of your beer. We will not be “judging” these beers, but rather providing a flavor, aroma, appearance and aftertaste summary of the beer. For an example go to our website, click on “News” from the homepage and then go to “Beers of the World”.

Thank you for your support and past participation. We look forward to better times, and resuming the tradition of the International Beer Awards and the Mountain Brewers Beer Fest.
