Default Having trouble finding competitions

I live in Pennsylvania and there doesn't seem to be a State Wide list of competitions like in some other states (like NY). I just thought it would be cool to start entering some of my beers, solely for feedback purposes.

I've obviously googled and searched on HBT but does anyone have specific info on PA competitions?

Also, can you usually enter competitions that are not your home state? Is this common? Thanks.

This is a comprehensive list of all BJCP sanctioned competitions, should be the same as the BJCP list posted above.
American Homebrewers Association Homebrewing Events

Unless it is listed as club-only, they will be open to anyone. Club-only competitions are for beers that have been judged locally, then sent on.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
