Competitions

Homebrew competitions provide homebrewers with valuable feedback on their brews from trained beer judges.
 

While some homebrewers enter competitions to win awards, others enter to get an unbiased, objective analysis of their entry. Let’s face it, you may think your beer tastes great, and your friends may say it tastes pretty good, but how would an unbiased judge describe it in a blind tasting?
 

Ultimately, entering competitions will make you a better brewer. Judges’ feedback can give you information about your sanitation procedures, ingredients, brewing process, and/or your recipe formulation. You may even take home some ribbons or medals!
