Bottle contentQuantity to be sent
Volume > 0.5 liters10 bottles
volume < 0.5 liters15 bottles



Samples must contain the following information:

  • Sales label (Commercial Label), because only beers available for free sale can participate in the European Beer Star.
  • The Category number and the Registration number must be clearly visible on the bottle with an adhesive label. You will receive the registration number with your order confirmation after registration.



The bottles must be delivered packed. To avoid breakage, it is recommended:

  • Wrap each individual bottle in blister pack material.
  • Place the bottles upright in a shipping carton.
  • Fill the spaces in the carton with packing material.
  • Label the carton "Fragile" and "This side up."

Avoid wooden crates as packaging for your beers!

Beer delivery from outside the EU

We strongly recommend that the beers should be shipped from June 20, 2022. 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 proforma invoice for customs clearance with the following specifications of the beers sent:

Shipping to: Doemens Academy (see above for address).

  • Beer brands
  • Number of bottles
  • Bottle content in ml
  • Alcohol level (ABV %)
  • Product value (e.g. € 1,00 / bottle or can)
  • Original gravity (°P)

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 proforma invoice for free use can be found for download here:

In order to keep the waiting time at the customs offices as short as possible, the organizers of the European Beer Star offer this year for the participants outside the EU an assistance for the shipment of the beers.

  1. Use the sample proforma invoice and create a proforma invoice according to your registration.
  2. Send the proforma invoice to Raic Gröper for approval:
  3. After approval of the proforma invoice, ship the beers according to the above mentioned specifications.
  4. Important: Please attach the proforma invoice outside the packaging visible to customs (e.g. attached with visual sleeves). Invoices placed inside may cause very long delays.
