The delivered samples will be stored in a duty-free warehouse in a dark and cool atmosphere in the basement of DB Schenker. The beers remain there no longer than one week after the end of the official beer reception. From there, the samples will be stored in a refrigerated container according to the tasting schedule. In this way, we ensure optimal storage of the beers from the moment they are received.
The minimum volume required per beer submitted is 5.0 liters.
|Bottle content||Quantity to be sent|
|Volume > 0.5 liters||10 bottles|
|volume < 0.5 liters||15 bottles|

Next to the order confirmation, you will for receive for each entered beer a ready-made label with a QR code for print automatically via Email. This label needs to be placed at the packaging of each submitted entry (not each sample!). The QR code will be scanned during beer reception. You can track within your user account conveniently if your beer has arrived at the European Beer Star.
The bottles must be delivered packed. To avoid breakage, it is recommended:
Avoid wooden crates as packaging for your beers!
We strongly recommend that the beers should be shipped at an early stage. The worldwide disrupted logistics chains lead to greatly extended shipping and waiting times at the respective customs offices.
Please note: Breweries from outside the EU need an additional invoice for customs clearance with the following specifications of the beers sent:
Shipping to: DB Schenker (see above for address).
If any of the above information is missing, there may be significant delays in customs clearance and arrival of the beers before the competition cannot be guaranteed. A sample invoice for free use can be downloaded here:
