2021 Competition Status

In 2021, the competition will move to a single-site judge center. Please read the 2021 Competition Announcement for more information. All evaluated all homebrew entries are judged in parallel over a one to two-week span. There is no longer a first round and final round format. After the judging is complete, the results must be verified prior to the Award Ceremony and feedback delivered to the entrants.

Registration, Rules, and Shipping/Drop-off information is found in the Rules & Regulations. Find more information on what we’re doing for safety leading up and during the competition by reading the NHC Health & Well-Being Guidelines.
