If you're like me, you want to enter more homebrew competitions but either:
A) Have trouble finding them, or
B) If you do find one, it's too late for you to brew and submit your beer
To solve these problems, the other Homebrew Academy bloggers and I added an event manager plugin which allows you to add and easily find homebrew competitions.
Many of us use the BJCP Calendar, but it's not very user friendly and it only lists AHA/BJCP sanctioned events. That leaves out a lot of competitions, like the ones frequently held by local homebrew stores, clubs, and breweries. Not to mention the newer competitions like Iron Brewer and the one by New Brew Thursday.
There's no discrimination with this calendar – any type of competition is eligible.
To get it started, I've added a few competitions from my home state of Colorado and Billy E. added one from his native Missouri. If you want a to add a competition, you can leave a comment on that page and we'll post it. There are more instructions at the bottom of that page.
Eventually (read: when I figure it out), we'll have a search by state feature and other cool features.
Hopefully other homebrewers find it useful. If not, it will become my personal calendar ; )
Spread the word because the more competitions we get listed, the more useful it is. If you have any comments or suggestions for additional features, tell us down below.
Now enter some competitions and go win some medals!
