2018 National Homebrew Competition
« on: December 05, 2017, 03:58:50 AM »
The AHA posted updates to the National Homebrew Competition for 2018 on HomebrewersAssociation.org and we want to make sure all AHA Forum users see the information.

Competition Updates
You can find all the current 2018 information, including important deadlines, on the NHC main page. Please make sure to read the updated Rules and Regulations, which also contain the National Homebrew Competition styles that are reorganized from the 2015 Beer Judge Certification Program Style Guidelines. For more specifics on styles, please reference the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines for beer, mead, or cider. The Online Competition Application opens January 23, 2018 and runs through January 30, 2018. Mark your calendars!

Keep an eye on the NHC main page for more specific dates and other information to be announced.

Update Your Club Info

If you'd like your club to compete for the NHC Homebrew Club Award and the Gambrinus Award, check to see if your club is in our club database and that the information is correct. If not, make sure to register or update your club's information by midnight, December 31, 2017. Club registration with the AHA is free.

I know some friends of mine in Philly have received their notifications for entries.  Are the regions staggered for notifications?  Just curious.

I guess if I don't hear anything by next Thursday, I'll have my answer :)

Still waiting to hear about my 1 entry. I think the notification window is through the 15th so we have a few more days to hear.

I also registered in the first day (first hour actually) and others who registered a day later already got notified.  But they were in a different region so I'm hoping it's just a matter of time.

Same, I registered and still haven't heard anything for the Philadelphia location. Do you get a response regardless whether yes or no?

Make sure you check your junk mail folder.

I found my final notice email in my junk folder yesterday and submitted payment and registration details just under the wire. Maybe my initial notice went there and I didn't see it.

I've been checking and haven't seen anything in the junk folder either.

like a lot of people I logged in and saw that I had entries before I got the email.
Just sayin' people should be proactive if something is important to them, not sit waiting until deadlines potentially pass while emails are lost in cyberspace or spam folders.

Got mine yesterday evening.  Wanted Portland because we can drop off entries, but I got Sacramento instead.  Lifetime members should get first pick.   :)
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

Everyone should have to ship, make everyone jump the same hurdles.

Trying to decide if I want to drive 4 hours to drop mine off.  Bunch of breweries around the dropoff point in NY.   ;D

I didn't even think I could do this, but looks like I have two entries for Chicago. Registered on the last day, haven't gotten an email yet though. My question is: I have 72 hours to pay for entries from when I get an email. If I don't get an email, how do I know when I have to pay? Question 2: if I understand the dates and deadlines in the link below, I have until March 30th to declare a style for my entries?
