Registration is officially open to submit for our 12th Annual Best of the Northwest! Winners will be announced digitally to Sip Magazine’s 55,000+ followers and opt-in subscribers 1 month after each competition is held (stay tuned for the exact dates) and the winners will also be featured in the 2024 Annual Collectors edition out in March 2024.
Tasting Notes are available upon request for each product submitted; this will give you feedback from the judging team that blindly tasted your product.
The beverages will be tasted blind, with a panel comprised of the Northwest’s top palates, judges and professionals, whose verdict will relay across all of our platforms including sipmagazine.com, the annual print issue and social media outlets. The top four from each category will be awarded – Platinum, Double Gold, Gold or Silver. The larger categories will have Judges’ Picks which are the next highest-ranking beverages after the four medalists (Platinum, Double Gold, Gold and Silver). At the end of the competition readers will gain further insight to the Pacific Northwest craft beverage scene and have an expertly curated shopping list of recommendations of what to drink for the next year and beyond.
