AHA National Homebrew Competition Registration is Open

February 25, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Registration for the first round of the American Homebrewer’s Association National Homebrew Competition is now open.  Visit the AHA’s website to register your entries and for more information on the competition.  There are two important rule changes to this year’s competition that are worth mentioning here (taken from the official NHC 2011 Rules and Regulations):

  1. Judging Centers. In 2011, there are no pre-defined regions in the US to which you must enter. Instead, you must choose one of nine Judging Centers to which you will send all your entries.  You must choose your Judging Center when you register your entries online; see this map for the Judging Center locations. You can only enter and send your entries to one Judging Center. Each Judging Center has a 750 entry limit. Once a Judging Center has reached the 750 maximum, no more entries will be allowed for that Judging Center. If you register your entries with one Judging Center and later try to add more entries after the Judging Center has hit the 750 limit, you will not be able to register the additional entries.
  2. Bottle Requirements. The bottle requirements have changed slightly for 2011. Bottles must contain a minimum of 10 oz and must fit in a standard case box slot. The measurements of a standard case box slot are 2.75 inches L x 2.75 in W x 9 in H (7 cm x 7 cm x 22.9 cm).

Entry deadlines are from March 21 to March 30 and depending upon which Judging Center you choose.  Good luck!
