AHA Club-Only Competition

Club members can bring in their beers to the listed meetings; where the club will select one member's beer to represent the club for the National AHA Club-Only Homebrew Competition (NCOC). If you're interested in representing the club for a particular beer style, bring in three (3) bottles of your best brew to the listed club meeting (bottles must be 10-14oz brown bottles with no marking/labels. Please, no flip-top Grolsch style bottles. If you'd also be so kind, please fill out the 'Recipe Information' sheet and bring it in with your beer.

Erin Anderson is coordinating this event for the club so see herif you have questions or would like to submit a beer. You can email Erin.

Winners of the Club-Only Competition earn points for their homebrew club on a 12-8-4 basis for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Points from placing in the COC get Barons closer to becoming the AHA Homebrew Club of the Year!

To enter, bring 3 bottles to the Barons monthly meeting at Clifford’s. Bottles must be brown or green and 10-14 ounces or the entry will be disqualified. We’ll use one bottle to judge our local round, and send two bottles of the winning entry on to the national COC round. The Beer Barons will take care of shipping, entry fees and refund that meeting’s entry fee to our local winner. The winning Baron must provide a recipe along with the entry. Enter your beer in the Barons BrewBlog and you can easily print your recipe.
