The AHA National Homebrew Competition is the world’s largest international beer competition recognizing the most outstanding homebrewed beer, mead, and cider produced by amateur brewers worldwide.
The first round of 2013 competition took place at eleven U.S. judge centers in the spring. First round winners advanced to the final round of the competition at the AHA National Homebrewers Conference. Final round winners received gold, silver or bronze medals in 28 style categories.
In 1979, 34 entries competed in the first AHA National Homebrew Competition held in Boulder, Colorado. In 2012, 562 entrants out of a pool of 1,735 first round entrants made it it through to the final round of competition in Seattle.
