Can i join homebrew competition internationally
« on: October 14, 2016, 10:46:44 AM »
Hi,

I would love to enter my beer in a homebrew competition, but i live in the Netherlands, Europe. Is it possible to enter my brews and ship them? Which competitions are available for international contestants?

I doubt any would deny your entry, but you would most certainly be breaking the law shipping beer into the US

There are ways around this. Many people trade beers across the Atlantic. It's just a matter of semantics to describe the package (something like 'sample' or 'gift'). Not sure how it's done but I can ask someone (in Belgium) if you are interested.
