BevNET Best Of 2020 Award Finalists and Nominees

Each year, BevNET’s annual “Best Of” Awards are presented to honor the companies, brands, individuals, products, ideas and trends that are shaping the beverage landscape as we know it today. And after the unprecedented disruption and upheaval seen collectively across the industry over the last 12 months, the 2020 edition of the prize has something of an added weight, in recognition of the ability to adapt, survive and thrive in a year unlike any other in recent memory.

The nominees and finalists for BevNET’s “Best of 2020” Awards reflect the variety and strength within the beverage industry both in front of and behind the scenes, whether it’s delivering bold new innovation and inspiring product concepts, executing effective marketing, or managing operations and supply chain in an unpredictable economic climate. For the first time, BevNET accepted nominations for the 2020 awards, resulting in a wide field of over 320 brands, products, campaigns and individuals that reflected the diversity and rich tapestry of our industry.

BevNET is proud to announce the finalists for this year’s “Best Of” Awards, as follows (with the exception of Person of the Year). Winners will be announced on a live awards show that will be streamed on BevNET on December 17.
