Thank you for your interest in the Blue Ridge Brew-Off (2024) organized by M.A.L.T (Mountain Ale & Lager Tasters), Asheville, NC.

Thanks and Good Luck To All Who Entered the Blue Ridge Brew-Off (2024)!

There are 250 registered entries and 90 registered participants, judges, and stewards.

As of 9:56 AM, EDT, there are 0 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 mailed entries must received at the mailing location by the entry deadline - please allow for shipping time.

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. 

Brewers may put multiple entries in each category as well as each subcategory as long as it is a different beer. Brewers will be limited to a maximum of 6 entries.

The competition committee reserves the right to combine 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 winners.
