Together with the American Homebrewers Association (AHA), we have partnered to host a people’s choice–style homebrew competition at our annual AHA Rally since 2008. During the Rally, attendees have the opportunity to sample beer from dozens of homebrewers and vote on their favorites. This year's Homebrew Competition & AHA Rally will take place on Saturday, January 11 at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station. The winning recipe will be brewed in collaboration with Stone Brewing and released across Stone Brewing’s domestic Tap Room and World Bistro & Garden locations. Additionally, the beer will be entered into the annual Great American Beer Festival® Pro-Am Competition in 2020.
Registration for the Homebrew Competition has been closed.
