Good evening all. Apologies for the radio silence regarding the National Homebrew Competition.

We are working in the background to try and secure facilities to host the competition in 2022.

While we work away can I ask all brewers intending to enter the competition to save March 26th 2022 as the date for the competition.

As before we have no idea what disruption Covid will bring but we will make sure and let all brewers know how the plans are progressing.

Thanks for your patience and fingers crossed we finally get to run the competition after a few years hiatus.

Happy brewing,

NHC President


Good afternoon all,

It is with regret that I have to update this post with bad news. After the government announcement on Friday and the uncertainty that surrounds us regarding social gatherings etc it is with regret that I have to announce that we are postponing the 2022 National Brewing Competition.

We will keep an eye on events and will update this post when we have more certainty around the event.

Again, apologies to all brewers who's plans have been disrupted by this news but the safety of all participants is our number one priority and until we can assure a safe and COVID free environment we will resume or plans to hold the competition.

NHC President


What are the chances of having the nationals now that we know most restrictions will be raised soon?


Yeah maybe a date in August whilst still in Summer as who knows what Autumn/Winter has in store.
Tapped: Brown Porter, Dortmunder, Rye IPA
Bottled: Barrel RIS, Barrel Red Flanders, Oatmeal Stout
