Welcome to the 2023 Los Angeles Belgian Brew Challenge

Pacific Gravity Home Brewers Club is proud to announce the 6th Annual Los Angeles Belgian Brew Challenge.  This is your opportunity to show off your brewing prowess for anything Belgian.  After a 2 year hiatus for COVID, we have resumed this competition.  This year we will be running the judging at Tortugo Brewing Company in Inglewood.  Our Best in Show beer will be brewed as a Pro-Am collaboration with Tortugo.

Judging day will be at 9:oo AM on Saturday March 25th. Registration for Judges and Stewards is now open!  Registration for entries will begin on February 2nd, and run through March 10th.

As in prior years, only entries that fall under Belgian sub-categories will be accepted for this competition.  These include 2015 BJCP styles 21b, 23b, 23c, 23d, 23e, 23f, 24a, 24b, 24c, 25a, 25b, 25c, 26a, 26b, 26c, 26d, & 28a.

In addition, there is one additional specialty category 35a that should be used only if your beer does not fit within the style descriptions listed.  This would pertain to wood aged, smoked, fruit styled beers.  Make sure it is clear from your description why it wouldn’t fit into one of the standard categories.

Good Luck!
