I saw that the National Homebrew Convention and Comp will be held in Philly (where I'm from) on 2013 and would love to go. For those who have gone in the past about how much was the tickets to go to all the events and what should I expect? I just got off the AHA website and couldnt find much info for next year, it was all post 2012 info. Thanks a lot.

Usually you have to purchase a single ticket for the main events which includes 2-3 days of talks, a club night (homebrew clubs showcasing beers) and a pro brewers night. You may pay additional for the banquet (food and beer pairings prepared by professionals; in San Diego it was Sean Paxton) and brewery tours in the area.

Hope this helps.

There tend to be two types of tickets- the "all" and the "social package". The "all" is for the talks, seminars, dinner on Saturday night, etc. The "social package" is for the Thursday night ProBrewers Night and Friday's Club night as well as the hospitality suite. I don't remember the exact cost- maybe $275 for the "all" and $200 for the "social package".

A full ticket for all three days with the seminars and banquet was $235 in Seattle, assuming you already paid AHA dues for the year.

Perfect! Thanks folks, that about what I was figuring. I am not a member yet but plan on being one within the next month or so. I'll be getting the "all" pass when its time and start thinking of what I'll be brewing for the comp. I can't wait!

The first round starts in March/April (different locations have different dates), and the second round is in mid-June. You can rebrew beers that advance.
