Canadian Homebrew Competitions

Homebrew competitions are a great way to get some feedback on the beers, ciders and meads you’ve been making, and potentially win some new brewing gear (or an endless supply of t-shirts).

If you’re the competitive type, Brewer of the Year tracks all the wins at Canadian competitions, and ranks everyone to find out who’s the best Canadian homebrewer of the year. They also track the homebrew club with the most points, so that’s something to encourage your club to get behind as well!

To learn more about running your own homebrew competition, head over to How to Run a Competition.

If you would like your competition featured on this page, and don’t see it listed, please send us an email about it.

As we are still in the midst of a pandemic, the usual homebrew competitions that clubs are running may not be running this year, or they might only be open to local entrants. We will be keeping a close eye on available homebrew competitions as they are announced.
