Does anyone know any good resources for finding home brew competitions in their state? In this case, Massachusetts would be ideal.

I always find them on the BJCP site but there are probably MA clubs that list state/local/regional competitions on an online event calendar.

oh bummer, you just missed it. deadline for the boston homebrew competition was 2 weeks ago. you're welcome to sign up to judge or steward at it if you'd like, PM me for the link to that if you;re interested. of course theres others to come, but that was most recent if you had something ready

That seems to be a very incomplete list. There are 4 in PA that aren't listed. Notably, the War of the Worts which has 800 or so entries each year.

It includes every competition that has registered for BJCP/AHA sponsorship. Most comps wait until a few months before to register.

It is the complete list of future registered BJCP/AHA sanctioned competitions.

I would love to judge, but I can honestly say that I don't have the palette for it. You know when you wine and the guy asks, "what do you smell?" Well, my answer is usually "grapes."
All joking aside, I think it would be something I would like to do at one point, but I would need to get some training or pointers before hand.
Also, I don't think I have anything ready for competition. I have an Amber Ale that is similar to Fat Tire, but I can't honestly submit it since i used a recipe online. I have a great Scotch Ale/Shilling, but I kegged it. I have two types of Porter I am going to submit for the upcoming Northcoast competition on April 3rd. Does anyone know about it?

ya can't blame you, I dont feel great enough on my palette to judge anyones beer as well as I'd want either, which is why I'm stewarding so I can get some pointers from the judges. since I'm in the club thats hosting it and going for my BJCP certification in Dec, I may end up judging for part of it tho
theres actually a competition in RI at the start of April if you want to submit the porters for that too ( http://www.jwu.edu/content.aspx?id=5...id=QqdwE3AWJWC )
