ABOUT RABCA

The Royal Adelaide Beer & Cider Awards (RABCA) is open to beer and cider producers from Australia and New Zealand.
Established in 1844 and relaunched in its current format in 2010, RABCA celebrates its tenth year in 2020, with ten highly coveted trophies up for contention. Categories include lagers, ales, porters, stouts, reduced alcohol beer, wheat beer, rye beer, alternative grain beers, cider and perry (pear cider).

 

JUDGING PROCESS

Exhibits are judged in a blind tasting from both a technical and consumer appreciation perspective, taking into consideration the beer’s appearance, aroma, flavour and overall impression.
A gold medal will be awarded to exhibits that score 17 points and over, a silver medal to exhibits that score 15.5 to 16.9 points and a bronze medal to exhibits that score 14 to 15.4 points.
A trophy will be awarded to the exhibit with the highest points. A Trophy may be awarded to the highest pointing silver medal winning exhibit if a gold is not awarded for that class.
