BFB will be serving again as the southern host for the 2018 National Homebrew Competition first round. More details will be coming soon, but judging is scheduled to take place the weekend of April 13-15, 2018.

Remember, the NHC is a qualifying competition in the Florida Homebrew Circuit, and serving as a host for this event elevates and promotes the burgeoning Florida homebrew scene and puts us in the national spotlight. We need your assistance to help us make this another super successful event this year, so mark your calendars and plan to come out!



The National Homebrew Competition (NHC) has become the largest homebrew competition in the world. The goal is simple: to celebrate the spirit of homebrewers. The competition gives homebrewers a chance to receive invaluable feedback on their entries and also recognizes the most outstanding, world-class homebrewed beer, mead and cider.
