The Beer Connoisseur Founder and Publisher Lynn Davis Joins Judging Panel for Craft Beer Marketing Awards 2020

Atlanta, GA – Lynn Davis, the founder, editor and publisher of The Beer Connoisseur has signed on as a judge for the upcoming the first annual Craft Beer Marketing Awards. The CMBAs are hosted in order to celebrate the best of beer marketing as well as the teams and individuals behind them.

Davis joins fellow judges Zane Lamprey, comedian, actor and writer known for Chug and Drinking Made Easy, Harry Schumacher, publisher and owner of Craft Business Daily, Jon Contino, creative director of branding agency CONTINO, and Ralph Steadman, the famous artist and illustrator most well known for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson and Flying Dog Brewery.

The awards field entrants in 30 categories ranging from Best Logo Design, Best Packaging Design and Best Can Design to Best Website Design, Best Merchandise Design and Best Use of Social Media. Both Packaging Design and Can Design feature “People’s Choice” sub-categories, which will be voted on by fans.

“There are hundreds of beer-tasting competitions in the U.S., but the Craft Beer Marketing Awards is the first-ever event in the U.S. that celebrates the amazing and creative work that breweries invest in their design, marketing and branding,” said Jim McCune, founder of the CBMAs.

The 2020 CBMAS Awards Ceremony will take place on April 20, 2020 from 6-9 p.m. at Smoke during the Craft Brewer’s Conference week in San Antonio, TX.  Select awards will be presented at 7 p.m. In conjunction with the awards’ lead sponsor, Hillebrand, the “Urban Cowboy”-themed event will be complete with a live DJ, an open bar, authentic Texas BBQ and a mechanical bull!

The award trophies themselves – dubbed “Crushies” after the image of a hand crushing a beer can – were designed and manufactured by the same NYC designer awards firm that creates the prestigious Emmy Award and MTV’s “Moon Man” statue.

The deadline to submit entries to the CBMAs has been extended to February 21, 2020. To submit an entry for consideration in the awards and for more details about the event, please use the link found here. The judging deadline is March 20, 2020.
