About the Canadian Brewing Awards

The Canadian Brewing Awards are the premiere competition for judging the quality of Canadian brewed beer. A Canadian Brewing Award medal is widely recognized symbol of brewing excellence in Canada. A panel of approximately 25 Certified Beer Judges (BJCP) considers five criteria: aroma, appearance, flavour, mouth-feel, and overall impression when judging the beer.
