Announcing - International Beer Awards 2021 and the New International Cider Awards

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 and International Cider 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 23 through August 28th; International Beer\Cider Awards ceremony will take place August In consideration of the economic impact of Covid 19 ENTRY FEES WILL BE ONLY $40 per beer\cider through August 10th. Entry Information is now posted on this site; you’ll also receive the usual electronic and paper notifications. For more immediate information follow us on facebook, which will also provide FREE brewing NEWS, history and other announcements. NOTE: When entering beer\ciders in the competition you are encouraged to use electronic entry and payment on our secure website.

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

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