We’ve almost reached the 13th edition of the most important Italian brewing contest, the Beer of the Year Award, being held again this year in the halls of Italian Exhibition Group’s Rimini expo centre.

The contest gives awards to the best Italian craft beers, which this year will be divided into no less than 42 style categories, three more than the previous edition.
