Arizona Fall Classic Homebrew Competition (Formerly ASH Oktoberfest Competition)


  • Odell Brewing Co. is the main sponsor. The beer Best of Show winner will once again get the opportunity to travel to Odell Brewing in Fort Collins, CO and brew their winning beer on Odell’s pilot system. A few kegs of the beer will make its way down to Arizona for special tapings, ASH happy hours and a special release at the 2016 Arizona Strong Beer Festival. This BOS prize is limited to Arizona residents.
