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 2021, the US Alpha King will be virtual from the Yakima Valley with an official LIVE stream announcement of the winners on September 17th at 4pm PST. Tune in to see who is crowned the next Alpha King! Live Link 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!
