How To

Compete

The competition is limited to 150 entries, which are fulfilled on a first-come basis. Historically, spaces fill up quickly so brewers are encouraged to plan ahead and submit their registration as soon it is open. For 2022, the US Alpha King will be back in Denver during GABF! More details coming soon.

During the competition, all beer entries are judged by a selected team of brewers, industry experts and veteran beer writers. The competition follows a series of elimination rounds to determine a list of top finalists as well as three placed winners. The first-place winner receives the Alpha King crown and prize pack!

How to compete:
  • Register beginning Monday, July 11, 2022.
  • Registration will be limited to 150 entries.
