2011 Puget Sound Pro-Am Accepting Entries and Judges
« on: April 11, 2011, 12:17:53 pm »
Got three bottles of a great tasting homebrew around?  The Puget Sound Pro-Am is accepting entries (three 10-12 oz bottles, $6 per entry) at the mail-in/drop location (Larry’s Brewing Supply) from now until April 26th so start sending in your entries (entries must be registered in advance through a link on the competition website at  The other entry points (Diamond Knot Brewery, Bob’s Homebrew Supply, Cellar Homebrew Supply, Fish Brewery, Olympic Brewing Supply, Snipes Mountain Brewery, The Beer Shoppe, and the Beer Essentials) are accepting entries from April 11th through April 26th.  Online registration is easy and mandatory! 

The Puget Sound Pro-Am is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition aimed at providing award winning homebrew recipes to be brewed by Puget Sound breweries with the goal of capturing a medal from the Great American Beer Festival’s Pro-Am Competition.  As many as FIFTEEN breweries will be selecting their favorite homebrew beers from the best of show round to scale up and brew on their systems.  Winning beers of AHA members may be sent on to the GABF for a shot at national glory!  Non-AHA members can still enter the competition and win other awards and prizes and the breweries not submitting to the GABF will not be constrained to picking an AHA member!  Out of state entries are more than welcome (the 2008 GABF gold medal winning beer came from the PSPA from an out of state entrant)!

WE WANT JUDGES!  Judging will be held on April 30th at Larry’s Brewing Supply in Kent, Washington.  If you are interested in judging, stewarding, or helping with event execution, please register online at the website or contact Mark Emiley at  We’ll have some calibration brews, raffle swag, and we need your recommendations for the brewers!

Check the website for updates on contest details.  To have the best shot of having your beer brewed, you should be an AHA member by the time of the competition, so join today!  Invite your friends to join the AHA and submit beers as well (all beers will be judged and ranked regardless of AHA membership).  Good luck!
