Participate in the International Craft Beer Competition 2018

Registration for the 2018 edition of the International Craft Beer Competition is closed. The official results will be made public very soon

After two editions in which the CICA Competition has grown in number and quality of registered samples, the Contest returns in 2018 to continue being one of the reference craft beer Competitions among those celebrated in Spain.

The CICA 2018 International Craft Beer Competition will be held on September 26 in Madrid.

In this edition we expand the number of accepted categories to the Competition, so that all craft beers can register in the category and subcategory that best suits their style. You can check here the complete list of Contest Categories.

LAST NEWS: CICA has reached a sponsorship agreement with FOOD MARKET BARCELÓ for the celebration of the final tasting sessions of the 2018 edition.

In addition, the best valued beers in the Contest will be promoted and put on sale in the FOOD MARKET BARCELÓ space during October, especially in the events dedicated to the Oktoberfest. Now CICA offers a double prize: recognition of quality and COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITY in the heart of Madrid.

A Jury composed by experts of high technical ability, including experts in sensory analysis, brewmasters, sommeliers and specialized journalists, endorsed by BJCP or similar certification, will evaluate the samples fairly, objectively and impartially, granting Grand Gold, Gold and Silver medals to the best participating beers. In addition, a special distinction will be established for the best beer in the Contest and for the best beers in each category, as well as a prize for the best brewery for the best valued brewery among those who register at least 3 beers in the Contest.
