Society of Beer Advocates - Beer for all the right reasons

National Homebrew Competition 2018


We've invited the best of New Zealand's judging talent to get picky over your homebrews. When you enter your beer, you can rest assured that it will be judged by some seriously experienced palates, including some of New Zealand's most well-known brewers, and especially some judges with several years judging experience at the World Beer Cup - the Olympics of beer!
