About CBMAs

In 2020, The Craft Beer Marketing Awards, affectionately known as “The Crushies,” made their debut. These awards encompass a diverse range of categories designed to recognize the pinnacle of craft beverage marketing and the brilliant teams and individuals who create them. We extend a warm invitation to breweries, artists, branders, marketing partners, and anyone involved in the project, to submit.

In 2021, the CBMAs embraced a global perspective, attracting entries from around the world in the realms of beer, hard seltzer, and cider. Contestants competed both regionally and internationally, marking the beginning of a tradition that has continued ever since. In 2023, we celebrated a record-breaking number of entries from across the globe, resulting in a spectacular array of winners!

As we enter our 5th year in 2024, all categories will exclusively vie for global recognition. The 2024 global award season opens its doors to the public in October, and submissions accepted until February 2024.

Global Crushies will be bestowed to only the top winner of each category. Platinum and Gold Crushies will honor those in first and second place. Our esteemed panel of beer, marketing, and design experts will meticulously critique and numerically rank all entries ensuring a credible and transparent digital scoring process.
