Hi everyone,

I'm in New Zealand and I'm entering my first AHA beer competition, and I so I'm not too sure which is my best options for first Judge Center and an alternate one from here.

I've opted for Denver for my 1st and Seattle for my alternate. But I really don't know how busy these two centers are for beer entries, or how quickly they will clear US Customs!
My question is, are they good options,  and if not, what others could you suggest?

Cheers Tony

All of the Judging Centers are at or near the 750 entry cap. The cost of shipping would be my decision criterion.

Good luck! Fun fact, a while back the Homebrewer of the Year was from Japan, so International entries can do well.
