About Our 2016 Beer Packaging Competition

At the end of each year, Tastings® offers the opportunity for breweries and design firms to showcase their brands' designs. We called upon our most seasoned drinks trade panelists to analyze and rate hundreds of beer bottles, labels, six packs, cases, and gift boxes and determine who excelled in the important area of packaging.
