Let's brew better beer together!

There are lots of other competitions you can enter this year.  It's a great way to get more feedback on your homebrew and help build up SFHG's reputation with some medals, so please consider entering these other competitions:

National Homebrew Competition:

Ready to test your mettle in the world's largest beer competition? The window to apply to compete in the 2015 National Homebrew Competition runs from February 2-8. The time or date applications are submitted has no influence on acceptance of entries into the competition. 

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. 

Please note:

  • All applicants to register will get a confirmation of application; this initial confirmation is NOT a confirmation of actual entry into the National Homebrew Competition itself.
  • All applicants will hear from us by February 17 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.
