We welcome your beers and your beer-tasting skills! Come one, come all! Please enter your brews and register to judge or steward at www.homebrewalley.com. Homebrew Alley XIII will be accepting entries in all BJCP categories using the 2015 guidelines. Prizes from our generous sponsors will be awarded for the best beverages in each category. The Best of Show winner will win not only glory and bragging rights, but our coveted championship belt! But that's not all - our 2019 Brewer's Choice winner will have the opportunity to brew a batch of their winning beer with Fifth Hammer in Long Island City! The registration and entry deadline is January 26th. This is a HARD DEADLINE - no exceptions. Judges and stewards will NOT be permitted to bring entries with them for submission.
