Search is on for world's best beers

04 May, 2007

The International Beer Challenge - the largest packaged beer competition in the world - is open for entries until May 31.

Each year, the IBC discovers and rewards the finest beers from across the globe and in association with Off Licence News, publishes its list of the World's 50 Best Beers.

Beers are divided into 12 classes and rigorously judged and assessed on both taste and packaging by a panel of the industry's leading beer experts, headed by chairman and respected beer writer Jeff Evans.

Last year's supreme champion was Thomas Hardy ale from O'Hanlon's brewery.
