Recommendations of good competitions
« on: January 11, 2019, 05:53:57 AM »
What are some good competitions around the USA? I’m in New Mexico and we have a couple, but I’d like to try competitions outside of the Land of Enchantment. What are your recommendations?

Here are the best ones I've entered:

Feb/Mar - BABBLE Brew Off - http://brewoff.brewcomp.com/
Feb/Mar - Drunk Monk Challenge - http://knaves.org/DMC/
May/Jun - BUZZ Boneyard Brew Off - http://buzzbrewclub.org/competition
Nov/Dec - Happy Holidays Homebrew Comp - https://stlbrews.brewcompetition.com/

I've entered dozens of other comps, but the ones above have consistently provided very good feedback (for whatever reason).

Try the Minnesota Mashout. I think registration ends today.

Regarding this one, it's also very good, but entries need to be RECEIVED by TODAY.

The Falcons put on a few. In the coming up week or so we have our Doug King Memorial Specialty and Lager Beer competition. In April, one of the world's oldest comps - the Mayfaire. Details at http://competitions.maltosefalcons.com/

FOAM Cup in Oklahoma may not be too bad to ship to from New Mexico. It's part of the Master Championship of Amateur Brewers (MCAB) circuit - https://foamcup.us/

I entered it one time with a bunch of club members who all shipped together and it was very well run with good feedback and timely results.
