The National Homebrew Competition (NHC) open enrollment application is now closed. The deadline of January 29, 2019 was extended from 3:00 PM MT to 11:00 PM MT to accommodate late applicants. The NHC application process cannot reopen because the random selection and placement process has started.

If you missed the NHC 2019 application window, please consider entering next year. Sign-up to receive a reminder when the next application process opens in January 2020.

Can’t wait to submit your homebrew in a competition? We invite you to find a sanctioned American Homebrewers Association/Beer Judge Certification Program (AHA/BJCP) competition in your state.
