Texas Craft Brewers Cup

TCBC is the only professional beer competition run and organized by the Texas Craft Brewers Guild to showcase the outstanding quality and variety of Texas craft beer and the brewers who make them. Now in its second year, 852 anonymized Texas craft beers were judged by industry professionals and experienced beer judges over the last weekend in January. The 81 medal winning beers, along with two Brewery of the Year award winners, were revealed in a closing ceremony at the Texas Craft Brewers Guild’s Annual Meeting in Austin on February 11, 2023.
