Prizes / Awards / Medals / Ribbons

The New York International Beer Competition medals will be awarded on a merit basis by a majority vote. The judges are instructed to grant no awards or medals when, in their opinion, the beers are not ones they would import, distribute, buy or sell in their businesses based on product and price category. Judges are asked to evaluate the beer in silence until all panel members have finished their evaluation and then open a discussion to reach a consensus. Judge votes are recorded by a NYIBC staff moderator. If there is a significant difference among the judges’ votes, panelists are encouraged to reach a consensus and, if needed, seek counsel from the Head Judge Adam Levy.

Award levels are Double Gold, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
– Double Gold: Phenomenal Product (Must Be Unanimous Decision by Panelists)
– Gold: Buyers “Love” It
– Silver: Buyers “Like” It
– Bronze: Buyers Would Purchase It

Double Gold award winners will be re-tasted by all panelists to establish which brands may be eligible to receive a ‘Best of Category’ endorsement in its pricing category
