The European Beer Star Award was initiated in 2004 by the Associations of Private Breweries in cooperation with the Association of Small and Independent Breweries in Europe for the purpose of honouring the unique diversity of beers and presenting them to the world. The contest addresses breweries around the globe that are committed to the traditional European art of brewing. All beers are blind-tasted by a international jury
consisting of master brewers, beer sommeliers, and accredited beer connoisseurs
- the tasters only know the types, but not the brands. Uinta Brewing Company is honoured to have been recognized in this distinct competition.
