Default Brewing Competitions

Just wondering if anyone knew of any US or world renowned mail in homebrew competitions coming up in the near future. I was looking at a bunch and most seemed to be held by local brew clubs. Any info at all would be most appreciated.

Just because a comp is being held/judged by a local club doesn't mean you can't enter. Here's a link to a list of AHA Sanctioned events:

Remember, someone somewhere has to host and judge. 99% of the time that's going to be a local club.

Yup, I mean even the AHA nationals first round is regional and "low rent". I think brewing street cred is gained over time and not necessarily at one comp... unless you get 23 beers into the AHA finals like JZ.

another tip for brewing street cred:

Most national events are multi-tiered, you don't enter them directly.

I gotcha. My buds and I have been busting out great brew after great brew, at least we think they're great, and just want to see how these "great brews" hold up against others on a larger scale. Thanks for all the input guys.

If you think they're great, that's all that matters. Who cares what anyone else thinks?????

Well, we are trying to eventually open a brewpub/restaurant so we are just trying to see if others enjoy our brews as much as we do. Possibly trying to get a few comps under our belts to see what it takes to be part of the big boys.
