UPDATE FOR 2021 – Due to COVID-19 risks and restrictions, many clubs have decided to cancel or downsize their competition for 2021.    With an incomplete schedule of comps being held, no SHA annual awards will be distributed for 2021.    

Each SHA member club is eligible to hold a competition, and the results of each competition are compiled over the calendar year to determine a Brewer of the Year, a Mead & Cider Maker of the Year, and also a SHA Homebrew Club of the Year.  Below is a schedule of the participating competitions for 2021.
