Competition Corner August 2022 – Here Comes Pacific Brewers Cup

Call for Entries- 2022 Pacific Brewers Cup

It is my pleasure to announce this year’s Pacific Brewers Cup Homebrew Competition will be hosted by Strand Brewers Club.  This most prestigious event is hosted on a rotating basis with Pacific Gravity Homebrewers Club, Long Beach Homebrewers Club and Strand Brewers Club.

Registration for Entries for the 2022 Pacific Brewers Cup Homebrew Competition is now open at:


We are also seeking Judges, Stewards and Competition Volunteers for this event.  Registration for these positions will be available at the same website beginning August 15, two weeks from now.  2022 PBC T-shirts and other perks will be available when registering as a Judge, Steward or Competition Volunteer; please consider helping Strand Brewers Club with this event.  Breakfast snacks and lunch will be provided to all Volunteers at the Final Judging on October 15.

Final Judging for the 2022 Pacific Brewers Cup will be held on Saturday, October, 15, 2022 @ Project Barley Brewery & Pizzeria, 2308 Pacific Coast Hwy. Lomita, Ca., 90717, starting at 8:30 AM.  We are planning a morning and afternoon Judging session.

This is a BJCP and AHA-sanctioned competition.  This is also a full-category Competition based on the 2015 BJCP Guidelines, including meads and ciders.

As this Competition will be judged live and in-person and the PBC Organizing Committee cannot predict future Covid-19 activity, we are asking that all judges and stewards be fully vaccinated.  Please be advised that the PBC Planning Committee and Project Barley Brewery & Pizzeria will be doing everything possible to ensure a safe Event, in compliance with current L.A. County and BJCP/AHA recommendations.  We will also ask everyone to observe COVID protocols such as wearing a mask whenever possible and your nose is not inside a taster cup, as a courtesy and precaution.

Judges, Stewards and Competition Volunteers are invited to submit entries as well.  Due to limits on comfortable size and space, we will be limiting the competition to 300 total entries, as an added safety measure.  Registration of Entries will run from August 1 to September 25, 2022.  Please note the deadline for Competition Entries is September 25, 2022.  For more information, including conveniently located drop-off locations, as well as an Entry Mail-in Location, please refer to the above website.

Cheers & Thank You
Jeffrey Hoy, Organizer, 2022 PBC
