The NHC First Round will be held on March 27 & 28 at Bellevue Brewing and we REALLY need some help! There will be one round of judging Friday March 27 at about 6pm, and 2 rounds on Saturday, with the first round starting at about 8:30am and the second at 12:30pm, with lunch served in between. There are a few things we could use some help with...

Judges & Stewards Needed

First and foremost, we need judges and stewards to help with the 720 entries. Please go to and sign up! BJCP ranked judges are needed the most!

If you have entries in the Seattle first round, go there and sign in. Then go to My Info and Entries and select Edit My Info. That will take you to a page with your name, address, etc. At the bottom of that you will see "Judging Team", select the button to Judge or Steward and you can sign up.

If you do not have entries in this region, or at all, please go to and click where it says "If you are willing to be a judge or steward, please register here."

Sort Day

On March 15th we will hold Sorting Day at Bellevue Brewing, starting at about noon. This is where we get the nearly 1500 bottles organized for the upcoming judging. If you can lend a hand for that it please let me know. Just drop me an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will get you the details.


We have judges coming from all over the region. A few folks are looking for a place to crash while they visit. If you are willing to host a fellow homebrewer, please let me know and I'll match you up. This is a great way to get to know others who share your passion! Again, just email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you there!
