No Label Brewing, a Katy, Texas-based brewery, is known for its creativity and atmosphere. The brewery has become a popular and well-loved spot in the Houston area, touting a brew for every taste! No Label’s ambiance and quality beers have made them a winner in both the hearts of locals and critics, with their most recent achievement being major wins at the 2022 Craft Beer Marketing Awards (CBMAs).
The CBMAs are the only global awards competition recognizing the importance of marketing craft beer. Though a good brew is important, many factors go towards successful promotion in this competitive industry. From artwork, facilitating the culture, design efforts, and more, the CMBAs celebrate categories traditionally left unsung when rating craft beers. To put in perspective the magnitude of the awards, this year’s CMBAs feature a judging panel of over 500 industry professionals from over 24 countries around the world. These individuals evaluated entries in over 30 categories from around the globe.
In an announcement made on April 28th, No Label won six Crushie Awards at the event, the most wins in the state of Texas and a significant feat in a tight-packed line of business. The Crushie Awards are divided into three tiers – Platinum, Gold, and Global. The Platinum Crushie is the most prestigious of the regional awards, with only one highest achieved ranking per category allowed to win it in each region. The Gold Crushie follows, granting up to five awards in each regional category. Lastly, the Global Crushie is the most elusive as it symbolizes the best in the world.
