Call For Beer & Cider Entries!

Wine Country Network, Inc, producers of the highly respected Denver International Wine Competition and The Denver International Spirits Competition, will conduct the 9th Annual Denver International Beer Competition on June 2-3, 2018. The DIBC is limited to commercially made beers only.

This double blind competition is based on a 50-point scale and we will judge beers & ciders (fairly)

Fair Judging Based On Scores

Our company also produces professional beverage competitions for wine and spirits. The DIBC awards medals in the same manner, based solely on scores.

This means that our awards are not limited to just 3 per category. In some cases we will award more than 3 awards or less than 3, based on actual scores achieved. We consider this system to be fairer than the "3 only" rules used by other competitions.
