Washington Beer Awards

We are proud to announce the Washington Brewing Awards, a craft beer competition designed specifically to support Washington’s professional brewers. This competition will provide an opportunity for all of Washington’s craft brewers to compete in a blind format. It will allow recognition of brewing excellence in Washington and provide constructive feedback supporting future competition entry decisions.  The winners of the previous Washington Beer Awards have been posted in the Winners section.  You can find out all of the competition details, entry timelines, and registration information needed to enter and compete here on this website!


UPDATE: The 2023 Washington Beer Awards main and fresh hop competition are complete.  Fresh Hop results were announced on October 19th at Growler Guys in Lake City (and are posted in the winners section) and the main awards were announced at Washington Craft Beer Summit on November 3rd (results also posted in the winners section).  Congratulations to all of the winners!

The 2024 competition will have the same general timing as the 2023 competition with registration in July, entries being due the week before Labor Day, and the results being announced at the Washington Craft Beer Summit in the fall.  There will be a Fresh Hop competition again in the fall and we are exploring a Winter Beer competition for this year!
