Homebrew competitions are a great way for homebrewers to get feedback on their beers from knowledgeable judges. If you'd like to improve your beers and have a bit of a competitive spirit in you, enter a beer or two in a homebrew competition. If you'd like to get involved in the judging of homebrew in a competition, just ask! You don't have to be an expert to jump in. We were all novices once.
