The Cherry Blossom Homebrew Competition is now up! Head over to to register. We are always seeking judges and stewards, so please volunteer on the same page. Good luck to all entrants! 

Our annual Cherry Blossom Competition is normally held around the time of the Cherry Blossom festival, so either in March or April. We will announce our competitions on the American Homebrewers Association competitions page and on this site.

Thank you brewers, judges, and stewards for your participation in past and current competitions. They are always a great success. Congratulations to all the winners!

And a massive shout out to DC Brau for supporting us (and to 3 Stars Brewing for its past support; may the company RIP).

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or clarifications—we can be reached
