The Beer Connoisseur® Announces Its New Ratings and Awards Certificate Program

Atlanta, GA – The Beer Connoisseur® is excited to announce the addition of its ratings and awards certificate program for beer, cider and breweries that are acknowledged in its Official Review.

Starting today and applying retroactively, breweries and cideries that receive favorable ratings including Very Good (90-86), Exceptional (95-91) and World Class (100-96) for beer and cider reviewed in the publication’s Official Review may now order framed certificates designating the achievement.

Breweries and cideries may also order certificates for the annual “Best Beers of the Year” and “Best Breweries of the Year” awards as published in the January edition of The Beer Connoisseur®.

These certificates allow brewers to proudly display their achievements on the wall of their brewery distinguishing themselves and their well-crafted beer and cider for all patrons to see.

The Beer Connoisseur’s Official Review is the most highly regarded independent media review of beer worldwide,” says Founder, Editor and Publisher Lynn Davis. “We are excited to finally provide brewers an opportunity to showcase their achievements where it matters most – on the walls of the breweries and taprooms where customers can see and appreciate the level of their craft. These certificates are certainly conversation-starters about the brewers and their high-quality beer and cider.”
