Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Brew Oahu Homebrew Competition organized by Homebrew in Paradise, 740 Moowaa St, Honolulu, HI 96817.

You only need to register your information once and can return to this site to enter more brews or edit the brews you've entered. You can even pay your entry fees online if you wish.

Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the 2019 Brew Oahu Homebrew Competition!

There are 100 registered entries and 64 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 5:31 PM, there are 93 received and processed entries (this number will update as entries are picked up from drop-off locations and organized for judging).


This competition is AHA sanctioned and open to any amateur homebrewer age 21 or older.

All entries must consist of two umarked, unlabeled 12 oz bottles with blank caps (see for more info) and received at Homebrew in Paradise by October 19th.  

All entries must be handcrafted products, containing ingredients available to the general public, and made using private equipment by hobbyist brewers (i.e., no use of commercial facilities or Brew on Premises operations, supplies, etc.).

The competition organizers are not responsible for mis-categorized entries, mailed entries that are not received by the entry deadline, or entries that arrived damaged.

The competition organizers reserve the right to combine styles for judging and to restructure awards as needed depending upon the quantity and quality of entries.

Qualified judging of all entries is the primary goal of our event. Judges will evaluate and score each entry. The average of the scores will rank each entry in its category. Each flight will have at least one BJCP judge.

Brewers are not limited to one entry in each category but may only enter each subcategory once.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine overall style categories based on number of entries. All possible effort will be made to combine similar styles. All brews in combined categories will be judged according to the style they were originally entered in.

The Best of Show judging will be determined by a Best of Show panel based on a second judging of the top entries.

Bottles will not be returned to entrants.
