Online registration is easy and mandatory!
The Joint Cascade Brewers Cup and Puget Sound Pro-Am is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition aimed at providing award winning homebrew recipes to be brewed by Puget Sound breweries with the goal of capturing a medal from the Great American Beer Festival’s Pro-Am Competition. As many as SIXTEEN breweries will be selecting their favorite homebrew beers from the best of show round to scale up and brew on their systems. Winning beers of AHA members may be sent on to the GABF for a shot at national glory! Non-AHA members can still enter the competition and win other awards and prizes and the breweries not submitting to the GABF will not be constrained to picking an AHA member!
WE WANT JUDGES! Judging will be held on March 10th at McKinstry Corp in Seattle, Washington. If you are interested in judging, stewarding, or helping with event execution, please register online at the website or contact Mark Emiley at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll have some calibration brews, swag, and we need your recommendations for the brewers! Judges and helpers also get $1 off each entry!
Check the website for updates on contest details and all of the rules. To have the best shot of having your beer brewed, you should be an AHA member by the time of the competition, so join today! Invite your friends to join the AHA and submit beers as well (all beers, ciders, and meads will be judged and ranked regardless of AHA membership). Good luck!
