Public Competitions

ASH hosts two competitions each year open to any homebrewer, regardless of club affiliation or location: the Arizona Spring Classic and the Arizona Fall Classic Homebrewing Competitions. Both competitions accept all BJCP beer, mead and cider styles based on the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines. For more information click image below:

Member Only Competitions (HBOY)

Additionally ASH hosts small members-only mini competitions. For 2020 we will be running a unique series of HBOY mini-competitions that will be announced during the year. The overall schedule and themes for the mini-comps can be found by clicking on the image below.

Entries must be dropped off at the general meeting of the month the competition is held (ie the May HBOY mini comp is due at the May meeting).

Members earn points by entering beers thought the year. The member with most points at the holiday party wins the title “ASH Homebrewer of the Year’ and great prizes. The current HBOY Competition Leaderboard is at https://azhomebrewers.org/homebrewer-of-the-year-leaderboard
