The 2017 Florida Homebrew Competition calendar

If you’re a homebrewer in Florida and/or a BJCP judge, you’ll want to check out this list of upcoming BJCP/AHA-sanctioned homebrew competitions throughout the state for 2017. If you want to register an entry and/or to judge, simply head on over to reggiebeer.com and sign up there. I’ll also provide links for each competition’s official website. I’ll be judging at many (if not all) of these competitions myself as well as entering a few of my homebrews. I hope to see you there! Cheers!

NOTE: I’ll repeat this post as new competitions are announced and/or cancelled.
