Why Compete?

Homebrew Competitions are a great way to receive feedback for improving your brewing techniques. The main function of a competition is to provide quality advice for making our favorite hobby all the more enjoyable.

What’s the Process Like?

Brewers sign up for each month using the links below, and drop off their beers in anonymous bottles. We review and score the beers based on brewing quality and style accuracy.

Who are the Judges?

Many of our crew are certified beer judges through the BJCP, and/or Certified Cicerones. When needed, we will also use certified judges from our fantastic homebrew community.

What Styles Can I Submit?

It depends on the month. We have a different theme each month. Click the link below for more details, and to sign up!
