Though the competition has limited capacity and is more popular than ever, with a record 3,000 entrants last year, we expect that nearly everyone who wants to enter will be able to do so. To maximize your chances, be sure to select multiple judge centers when you apply.

All applicants will hear from us by with an alert indicating whether or not their entries have been accepted into the competition. The SFHG normally collaborates a drop off at the Sacramento location, so if you are going to enter, let us know and we'll try to help get your beers up to Sacramento.
