SCUBA Club-Only Competitions
What It Is
All SCUBA members are invited to enter and/or judge in the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Club-Only Competitions. Held approximately every other month, these competitions usually focus on one or more Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) beer/cider/mead styles.
Each homebrew club conducts its own judging round to select a club winner, which is then sent on to the national competition to compete against the other clubs’ entries. Points are awarded to clubs for winning entries, and the winningest club receives the AHA Homebrew Club of the year at the National Homebrewers Conference in June.
Some judging sessions may be held at SCUBA meetings, and some may not, depending on deadlines and logistics.
