Another year, another great National Homebrew Competition (NHC)!
On June 30th during Homebrew Con 2018 in Portland, Ore., NHC entrants and conference attendees gathered for this year’s Award Ceremony. Homebrewers were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals in 28 beer, 3 mead, and 2 cider categories.

This year we received a total of 8,405 entries at 12 First Round judging locations from 3,517 brewers. Entrants hailed from all 50 states (and DC!) and 18 countries. Since our first competition 40 years ago in Boulder, Colo., the National Homebrew Competition has received and evaluated over 143,000 beers, meads, and ciders!

The National Homebrew Competition is made possible by a very passionate and dedicated team of volunteers, judges, and stewards. Running the world’s biggest homebrew competition is no easy feat, so a huge “THANK YOU” to all who volunteered their time (and palates) is in order.
Until next year…
John Moorhead, National Homebrew Competition Director
