With the Quality Test for Craft Beers, DLG offers the innovative brewing trend an attention-grabbing platform and rewards outstanding Craft Beer specialities with DLG Medals.
In the DLG Test, Craft Beers are assessed in comprehensive sensory tests. By contrast with the conventional DLG Beer Test, only one sample is examined, as here the sensory analysis focuses on the special characteristic of the beers and not on the taste stability of two different bottling cycles.
In order to be able to assess the individual special features of the Craft Beers better, further factors are included in the quality assessment – special formulations, refinement (storage, ageing etc.), product philosophy, historical models and the application of special production methods.
