Dear Brewers, Colleagues and Friends,

for more than two decades, our association has been organizing its high prestigious beer competition in every two years. Based on the international feedback of the KSE’s beer competition and the offer of craft and home breweries we decided to organise the event on a yearly bases which has not been the case in the last two years due to the pandemic. This year, however, we will hold it again. The XIV. KSE International Beer Competition will take place at the Hungexpo within the framework of the Sirha Budapest Exhibition on March 23-24 2022. Thanks to the professional collaborations, in addition to the Hungarian breweries, beers will also arrive to the competition from the Carpathian Basin and from the “V4” countries.

The date of the competition is 23-24 March 2022.

The KSE International Beer Competition of 2022 is a unique initiative in Hungary to enable the general public to take an active part in such a professional program. At the Sirha Budapest Exhibition, visitors can taste the current offer of the Carpathian Basin's craft and home breweries at the KSE's booth. Further details are summarized at


Let us continue together this tradition by competing our products and by presenting them for tasting to each other and to the public.

We are looking forward to your participation, so please feel free to submit your application by filling the form at the Competition section.


Yours sincerely,
