To judge your beer we need to get it…

Packaging Instructions

Use your commercial boxes or package them in the boxes your transportation partner will provide to you.

Beer samples in cartons, very well packed. Wrap each beer in bubbles or protection paper. Do not wrap more than one beer! Only one! Please don’t overdo it.

Use light and protective material to fill the empty space of your boxes. Do not leave it empty. The beers must not move inside! Do not fill it with other beers, empty bottles, or heavy and dangerous materials. 

All beers should face the same direction. “This Side Up” should be indicated outside of the box.

Add the “FRAGILE” indication on the box/boxes.

Damaged boxes and broken beers can not be judged. So please, pay attention to the packaging.

Please Remember

For 330ml samples, 5 bottles/cans are required.
For 500ml & 440ml samples, 3 bottles/cans are required.
For 700ml & bigger samples, 2 bottles are required.

Shipping Instructions

All duty, shipping costs, and taxes must be prepaid by the submitter of the samples and beer must be Delivered Duty Paid (DDP). Please instruct your forwarder/courier company to complete the import declaration. 

Choose “Shipper accepts all charges” on the documentation provided by your courier company. Submitters should also be responsible for any fees related to the import declaration.

Beers cannot be accepted by us or our logistic partner if the charges associated with shipping have not been paid. Any penalty and additional costs incurred from the non-compliance of declaration requirements will be borne by the Submitters.

Your beer samples box must be accompanied by a proforma invoice (One copy on the top of the box and one copy inside the box) for the purpose of paying VAT (if there applies). Participants who will be shipping samples from outside Greece and the EU must provide a proforma invoice. This is not required for shipments within Greece and the EU. It is advised to send a digital copy of the invoice to the emails you find below. Invoices need to clarify that there are no costs or fees for the beers that you send us. Be sure that you clarify that your shipments are free samples for a competition.

The invoice must be correct. Issued to us (details are available below or on the invoice you received from us after your payment) and shipped to the warehouse (details available below). Contact details and people are available below. Prioritize the details as 1) Greek Beer Awards organization/address/email/phone, 2) Warehouse-Logistics partner/address/email/phone. For any communication regarding the shipping of your samples, add both emails.

Even if we ask for your shipping details like Transportation Company/Courier, and Reference Number, we are not responsible for tracking the shipping of your beers. Note that if it is a transportation company you collaborate with, instruct them to contact our partner for an appointment before they deliver your beers or deliver them during the collection hours mentioned bellow.

If you miss the shipping deadline, your registration will not be considered for judging and no feedback will be reflected in your account. No refund will be initiated in any circumstance of missing the shipping deadline. Delays caused by couriers and customs will not be accounted for, so please ship in advance and inform us for anything that might occur.

Please ensure everything is in order before sending your beers.

For deliveries, it is NECESSARY to pre-inform the warehouse at least 1-2 days before receipt by email at awards@beerbartender.gr with Cc giota.hina@elikontransport.gr which should include the quantity (e.g. One (1) box etc.) as well as the sender (e.g. Microbrewery X).
