Washington Homebrewers Association

Recognizing Excellence in Homebrewing

Throughout the state of Washington there are homebrewers who are going to great lengths to take homebrewing to the next level.  There are skilled homebrewers who can dream up a near perfect beer and bring it into your glass.  There are clubs who collectively share a wealth of ideas and efforts, all to make a better pint.  There are individuals who devote tons of energy for the betterment of the homebrewing hobby as a whole.  While these brewers may only be seen by a few, their skills and efforts reach far beyond the walls of their home brewery.

One of the core missions of the Washington Homebrewers Association is to “Recognize Excellence in Washington’s Homebrewing Skills and Contributions to the Homebrewing Society.”  To accomplish this, the WAHA has set up several awards programs to shine a light on Washington’s top homebrewers and to encourage everyone to aim for that next highest goal.

Brewers and clubs from around the state are invited to compete for the following awards.

·Washington Homebrewer of the YearGUIDELINES HERE - Sponsored by Hop Union

·Awarded to the homebrewer who scores the most points in sanctioned WAHA competitions

·Bert Grant AwardGUIDELINES HERE
