As we bid farewell to the incredible year that was 2023, BAP is still processing the collective accomplishments that made it truly memorable. A year filled with achievements, partnerships, and, of course, participants that truly made us overcome even the most optimistic expectations we had one year ago. In 2023, we achieved significant milestones, such as surpassing the mark of 900 beer competitions held in four years of operation. Speaking of which, to celebrate these four years, we underwent a rebranding process that was commemorated with a special feature for the judges who utilized our platform. Check out below other key moments that made our year so special.

Crafting Excellence in Competitions:

In 2023, BAP proudly served as the official platform for 315 beer competitions. This number comprises both existing clients and new organizations who trusted our platform to streamline the judging, management, and production of their events. This figure represents a 31% increase from 2022 and reflects the strengthening of our presence within the brewing community.


Entries that Tell a Story:

We had a staggering number of entries registered last year. With an impressive 41,526 entries, each bottle and can tell a story of craftsmanship, creativity, and passion for this community. Furthermore, these entries were submitted by 3,854 breweries and 4,275 homebrewers, averaging at least 5 entries from each producer. Compared to last year's numbers, there has been a further growth of 77% in registrations of homebrewers and 20% in breweries.


Judged by the Best:

The retrospective presented to the judges was not just a formality; it was a celebration of their commitment to excellence. A total of 4,251 judges utilized our platform in 2023, marking a 72% growth compared to the number of participating judges in 2022. We welcome them and look forward to a long journey together, where they can dedicate themselves and further develop with our platform from anywhere in the world. In 2023, they filled out a total of 110,357 digital scoresheets. Just imagine how much effort and material were saved with the user-friendly features of our digital platform! It's a 'so long, farewell' to paper and pen!


We are everywhere:

Our passport is full of stamps! We were present on five continents (Oceania, we've got our eye on you!). Our presence extends far beyond any borders, reaching 31 countries in 2023. This is also attributed to the versatility of our platform, available in six languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, Slovak, and German. The latter two were incorporated in 2023 with help of our awesome community. 


Medals, Glorious Medals:

Gold, silver, bronze – each medal symbolizes the recognition from the brewing community for the effort the brewer or brewery put into that creation. In 2023, a total of 7,336 medals were awarded, but we emphasize that each piece of feedback received is also an achievement as it contributes to further improving each production.


New face, new us:

In November, we unveiled our new brand. We are proud of the result and happy with the positive feedback received from all our partners and users. As a symbol of gratitude and celebration, we introduced the retrospective feature for judges, allowing them to review the numbers that defined their 2023 in the competitions they participated in.

As we eagerly step into 2024, we carry with us the memories of a year filled with triumphs and good moments together. Here's to crafting more success, embracing new challenges, and continuing to redefine the world of beer competitions. Cheers to 2024!
