Registration nears for 'National Homebrew Competition'

If you're planning on entering the annual "National Homebrew Competition," it's time to get updated on the rules and schedule before the registration period opens on January 30.

Registration runs through February 5, with first-round judging set for March 17–April 23, final judging on June 15, and the awards ceremony on  June 17.

The competition is open only to American Homebrewers Association members, but joining is a rather simple process, with details available on the AHA website. While this is a homebrewers event, professional brewers may enter as long as they do not use professional equipment or ingredients.

The AHA has announced that new categories this year will be American Wild Ales, Double IPA, and Specialty IPA.
