The delivered samples will be stored in a dury-free warehouse in a dark and cool atmosphere in the basment 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.

To facilitate the evaluation of creativity it is necessary,

Based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, a questionnaire was developed together with sustainability experts from the Bochum University of Applied Sciences, experts from the brewing industry and brewery surveys. The following categories are asked of participating breweries:
From the questionnaires that come back from the breweries, a team of experts from Bochum University of Applied Sciences determines the 8 best applications according to a recognized
evaluation sheet. As with the classic European Beer Star categories, this is also a "blind tasting", which means the brewery is not disclosed to the team of experts.
The 8 finalists are then re-evaluated by an interdisciplinary team of sustainability and beer experts, as well as media representatives
and will be subjected to a European Beer Star tasting. The sensory evaluation criteria of a regular EBS tasting are applied.
The award ceremony for the winners of the Future Award will take place during BrauBeviale.
