Homebrew competitions are a great way for homebrewers to get feedback on their beers from knowledgeable judges.  If you'd like to improve your beers and have a bit of a competitive spirit in you, enter a beer or two in a homebrew competition.  If you'd like to get involved in the judging of homebrew in a competition, just ask!  You don't have to be an expert to jump in.  We were all novices once.  To take homebrew beer judging to the next level, check out the Beer Judge Certification Program.
